That's how we are

The Rehlegg – Not your run of the mill hotel

The people in Ramsau have always been considered headstrong. We don’t exempt ourselves from this: We deliberately go out on a limb, on topics that are important to us. For example when it comes to sustainable tourism. Or an appreciative and responsible way of dealing with people. And because the Rehlegg has grown slowly, we are optically not your run of the mill wellness hotel. We have the old alongside the new, traditional alongside modern. And often things looks very different around the next corner. Become part of our story – we look forward to seeing you.

Our history  

Once up on a time ….

In 1454 the Rehlegg was a rustic farmhouse. In 1917 Sebastian Lichtmannegger bought the property for his family. In addition to agriculture, he and his wife ran a small haulage company and they started renting guest rooms. In 1938 the Rehlegg had 30 beds and for an overnight stay with breakfast they charged 2.40 Reichsmarks. Included to this was, even a little bit of glamor: The UFA film company was booming and one of the there films was being shot on the farm. Over the decades, we Lichtmannegger’s have continued to expand and reinvent the Rehlegg. Into the 4-star superior hotel that we are today. With 87 rooms and suites, restaurants, outdoor pool, indoor pool, SPA and large sauna area. But even so a lot has changed during the last 100 years: the former farmhouse is still in its place.

We love green

Tourism and sustainability – is that possible? Yes ofcourse! In order for you to go on your vacation with a clear conscience, as a sustainable hotel we rely on renewable energies and try to avoid waste wherever possible. Clothing that you can buy in our hotel shop has been produced sustainably. Since 2017, overnight stays at the Rehlegg have been climate-positive, because we bind more CO2 than we emit. In order to compensate for our own residual emissions, we actively participate in afforestation in Panama. We were honored for this by Viabono, the specialist organization for environmentally friendly travel. We are also participating in the regional mountain forest offensive and are the first hotel in Germany to invest in humus certificates.


No to “Cheap meat”

We are buying expensive for you. This goes not only, but especially for fish and meat. Because we have deep respect for all living things. Every animal should have a good life – from the beginning to the end. That is why we attach great importance to species-appropriate husbandry and respectful rearing. The Augsburg chickens, for example, which we obtain from our partner company in Bayerisch Gmain, are allowed to move freely in the green meadow, and male chicks are not killed. Every year, we invest a six-figure sum into this conviction. Therefore you can be sure that we will take good care of your food with a lot of commitment.

Kelterei Stadler

Brettacher apple, Rhenish bean apple, Graham’s anniversary apple, for Michael Stadler, fruit is not just fruit. Around 1,600 trees grow on the 800 meter high yard of the industrial master for fruit juice, drinks and food. Many of them are old and traditional habits. The Stadler family has been making fruit and juice mixes since 1929, ‘a large part of the injuries from our own cultivation and is organic and NaturLand quality. Michael Stadler is the third generation to run the business. In 2014, a new company came with “Watzmann quality drinks”. Here, without exception, purely natural raw materials are used instead of standard industrial raw materials with artificial additives. Have you already tried a Watzmann organic Alpine lemonade?


A neat thing

As a sustainable hotel, effective microorganisms, EM for short, are used at the Rehlegg. The products are non-toxic, wastewater-friendly and do not irritate the skin. In addition, effective microorganisms eliminate odors instead of artificially masking them. In the end, the cleaning water can even be used for watering house plants or for sewage treatment. Thanks to EM, we can save the environment tons of chemical cleaning agents. And create a pleasant and healthy living environment for our guests.
