More about the History of Reit im Winkl

The first signs of settlement in Reit im Winkl are in the 12th century. The date of the foundation is 1160 when Otto de Rute was named in a document. The accuracy of the document is disputed and some historians put the beginning of the settlement to the middle of the 13th century. From this time it has been part of Bavaria.

Reit im Winkl was part of the parish of Kirchdorf in Tirol which was itself part of the diocese of Chiemsee from 1275 until 1804.

Historians have assumed the location of the manor of the Herren von Reit (Lords of Reit), on a small hill above the church.
