The history of the Villa Rein is inevitably linked to Bad Reichenhall. Through health treatments offered by the private initiative of a well-known spa house around 1846, the actual rise of Bad Reichenhall from a saline town to a widely renowned spa town began. The stay at a health spa of King Maximilian II. (1848), of Reich Chancellor Otto von Bismarck (1871) and numerous other celebrities of the time were the breakthrough for Bad Reichenhall. Today, managed by the third generation, the family business looks back on an eventful development. The Art Nouveau villa has been owned by the Rein family since 1938.
The property was first documented between 1817 and 1841 on carthographical sheets of the Kingdom of Bavaria. Plans to convert a simple farmhouse into a lodging establishment document the original property. However, they never came to pass. Instead, the former owner of the property, Fritz Ackermann, demolished the old building in 1898 and in its place built the present magnificent villa with bay windows in corner turrets, swooping gable Avant-corps, mansard roof and Art Nouveau balconies as an accommodation business.
Proudly following the long standing tradition the historic villa is continued as a hotel by the Rein familiy until today.
