Luxurious living is one of the finer things in life. Whatever you choose, be it guest room, suite or apartment, each has its own magnificent view across the palace park, the River Rhine and vineyards.
Leisure, rest and relaxation. Only when you feel at home, can you really relax and enjoy yourself. The splendour of days gone by is carefully preserved, while all the conveniences of modern life discreetly look after your comfort and well-being.
On the site of today´s chateau the Knights of Erbach had their residence from 1189 to 1275. For four centuries thereafter the estate belonged to the Knights of Allendorf, who passed it on to the family of Langwert von Simmern.
In 1801 the Earl of Westphalia pulled down the ancient buildings and began with the construction of the chateau, as it is found today.
In 1855 Princess Marianne of Prussia, born of Holland, daughter of the King Wilhelm I of the Netherlands, bought the estate. Princess Marianne married Prince Albrecht of Prussia, brother of the later Wilhelm I an son of the King of Prussia Friedrich Wilhelm III. The couple separated before the chateau was bought; due to the multiple affairs Prince Albrecht had. Finally Marianne asked for divorce. The Princess was greatly interested in art and collected a great number of works. Paintings she liked, but which were not up for sale, she had copied. Because of here lave for art, she enlarged the chateau by building an art gallery. Today the collection which is bound to the chateau an can not be sold separately has over 200 paintings.
In 1861, after the death of here son Johannes, the Princess signed a document in which she donated 60.000 florins and an adequate property to build a church, Johannes was buried under the altar. The Johannes church is today´s Protestant church of Erbach.
In 1902 the island in the river Rhine was renamed to “Mariannenaue”.
Until 1987 the family Prussia was owner of the estate.
In 1987 the estate was bought by the Leibbrand family. All buildings were restored and partly enlarged. Willy Leibbrand turned the old fashioned style estate into a marvellous 5***** hotel.
Since 1999 Schloss Reinhartshausen belongs to a group of private investors, the “Freunde von Reinhartshausen”.
Since 1999 the Hotel Schloss Reinhartshausen belongs to the Small Leading Hotels of the World.
In 2000 the estate Reinhartshausen celebrated its own 200 years anniversary.
Since November 2001 there is an operative alliance between Hotel Schloss Reinhartshausen an the Kempinski AG.
