"I will be staying at the castle - where is the nearest swimming pool and can you walk there from the castle, if not is there a bus service?" (posted 02/04/2017)

Bin circa 7.3 km distance, you will find the market town of Burgsinn. There is a beautiful outdoor swimming pool. In Rieneck itself there is only the possibility of the Hotel Gut Dürnhof ask whether you are allowed to use their swimming pool. A bus service does not exist in this region unfortunately. The public transport network is very rare. In addition, in 2017 a bypass is built around Rieneck around. This leads to considerable limitations.

More about the History of Rieneck

In 790, Rieneck had its first documentary mention. The town’s current name comes from its former lords, the Counts of Rieneck, who themselves had taken the name from a Middle Rhenish noble family that had died out. In the mid 12th century a castle was built on the banks of the Sinn. With this arose a settlement, which as of 7 June 1311 was described as an “oppidum” (town). Among the Counts’ descendants is found the family of Ministeriales Voit von Rieneck, which itself also later earned local importance. As the castle was being converted into a knightly castle in 1168, Count Ludwig of Rieneck acquired the County in the Spessart. The comital family, whose seat was at Lohr (Lohr vacation rentals | Lohr travel guide) am Main, died out with Count Philipp III on 3 September 1559. Rieneck ended up in 1673 in the hands of the Counts of Nostitz. The Amt of the County of Rieneck, which the Counts of Nostitz had sold in 1803 to the Counts of Colloredo Mansfeld, was in favour of the Principality of Aschaffenburg (Aschaffenburg vacation rentals | Aschaffenburg travel guide) mediatized in 1806 and passed with this state in 1814 (by this time it had become a department of the Grand Duchy of Frankfurt) to Bavaria. In the course of administrative reform in Bavaria, the current community came into being with the Gemeindeedikt (“Municipal Edict”) of 1818.
