The historic Villa Stéphanie
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.
A residence for royalty
The annexe is erected on the plot of land to the southeast of the Hotel Stephanie’s main building following the successful takeover of the hotel by the visionary hotelier Camille Brenner in 1882.
Villa Stephanie persisting
The Villa Stephanie which forms part of the Hotel Stephanie becomes the headquarters of the administrator general responsible for the civilian population and administration of the entire French zone. In December 1955 it is vacated by the French military.
Retaining the name Stephanie
Subsequently after modernisation work, the villa is to be used in the future as an annexe to the Brenner’s Park-Hotel which reopened in July 1950.
Fulfilling the original intention
Guests at Villa Stephanie are impressed by the rare harmonic atmosphere of a cosy, refined, large private property combined with the comforts of a large hotel.
The Schwarzwaldklinik in
The private clinic offers treatments for internal illnesses, rehabilitation, convalescence, inpatient aftercare and short notice check-ups.
In July 1997 the clinic’s internal medicine division is closed.
Renaming Stephanie les Bains
The Villa Stephanie now accommodates one of the finest private clinics in Germany.
Paving the way to Brenners Medical Spa
The Brenners Medical Spa signifies the logical continuation of a healthcare concept integral to the Brenner idea ever since the establishment of the hotel.
Villa Stéphanie -
Europe’s finest destination spa
The building’s impressive history, the magnificent natural surrounds of its location in a private park and the style and design in all aspects of the Villa Stéphanie – all create an environment of recuperation and relaxation in the character of a large private house.
