History

The historic Villa Stéphanie

An unrivalled landmark of European hotel culture - the Villa Stéphanie destination spa.
By opening the house of wellbeing we united the past with the present and the future.
In the 19th century, Anton Alois Brenner gave the town the Stephanie-les-Bains, a hotel which has carved its name in history. The farsightedness of his son Camille saw the enhancements develop into an opulent ensemble that placed emphasis on health, beauty and wellbeing –
a vision that still applies today.
Today’s Villa Stéphanie bears witness to a woman whose name still stands over the house like
a guiding star: Stéphanie de Beauharnais, Grand Duchess of Baden and adoptive daughter of Napoleon I.
The building's history is just one aspect of the 2000 year heritage of the spa town Baden-Baden.
