History

The Wörthersee architecture lends the lake a special charm.

Franz Baumgartner is one of the most influential representatives of the Wörthersee architecture and planned and constructed Villa Rainer for Baron Dr. Turkovic as summer residence between 1910 and 1914.

The villa was acquired by the Rainer Family in 1928. The first "room with running water and breakfast" was offered in 1956.

The 13.000 m2 park, the beautiful location at the lake with 100 metres of lake shore and the vastness of the grounds attracted notables like the president of the Reichsbank, Hjalmar Schacht, or the war book writer Fritz Wöss ("Stalingrad - Dogs, Do You Want to Live Forever") in the first years after the war already.

Bruno Kreisky enjoyed his holidays at the Villa Rainer in the 70s and Princess Margret of Holland and family as well as leading figures from the world of economy and politics stayed here in the 80s.
