Mayr-Reisch FAMILY

Family-run hotel with traditional flair

For generations the Mayr-Reisch family has helped write the history of Kitzbühel. Before this remote mountain village became one of the world's most famous wintersports resorts Franz Reisch, great-grandfather of today's owner, was mayor and worked hard to bring the burgeoning sport of alpine skiing to Kitzbühel. It was he who imported the first skis from Norway to this part of Austria and laid the foundations for tourism in the region. With the construction of the Sporthotel Reisch in 1912 he achieved another milestone in the history of the village. Back then there were only few hotels in a valley dominated by farming. Franz Reisch had the courage to think ouside the box – a character trait which has been passed down through the generations.

Today the hotel is managed by the fourth generation in the form of Mike Mayr-Reisch and his family, who continue to pursue the high standards set by Franz Reisch all those years ago.

LegendARY HISTORY

Inspired by Kitzbühel

Visitors to the Sporthotel Reisch will find symbols of the hotel's long history throughout the building. In the individually designed and decorated Legends Rooms you can journey back through the history of Kitzbühel and find out what makes this traditional town in the heart of the Alps one of the world's most famous wintersports destinations. Each room tells the story of a bona fide Kitzbühel legend such as Franz Reisch, great-grandfather of the current hotel owner.

Upon your arrival in Kitzbühel you will be welcomed by Mike, his family and the friendly hotel team here at the Sporthotel Reisch with its modern flair and traditional touch.
