Culture & history in Rinn

A journey through the past

Charming countryside and village flair: Rinn is a special place with a vibrant history. The name “Rinn” is thought to originate from the Rhaeto-Romanic word “Run”, meaning a cleared woodland site, and was first officially documented as “Runne” in 1250.

Tyrolean freedom fighter Josef Speckbacher

The name Speckbacher also has a remarkable history in Rinn: The honourable Tyrolean freedom fighter Josef Speckbacher and the heroine of Spinges Katharina Lanz fought alongside the legendary Andreas Hofer in the battle against French occupying troops. Josef Speckbacher was brave and tactical and had strong ties to his homeland; he took part in all three battles on the Bergisel in 1809. Speckbacker married Maria Schmieder from Rinn in 1794 and worked on her farm from that point on. He soon became known as “the Man from Rinn” and was a valued member of the community for his entire life. His grave is located in Innsbruck's Court Church and the Josef Speckbacher monument can be admired in the nearby town of Hall in Tirol.

The history of tourism in Rinn

Rinn had become a popular travel destination even before the First World War. For a long time, the “Lavierenbachbad” with hotel was a coveted destination for drinking & bathing treatments and health retreats. A historical tourism brochure described it as follows: “Rinn is one of the first climatic health resorts set on a Tyrolean alpine plateau and is particularly popular due to the ozone-rich air and outstanding quality of the drinking & bathing water. Rinn is situated right next to a charming coniferous forest, in an area that is sheltered from the wind but that still enjoys magnificent views of the entire Nordkette mountain range from the Upper Inn Valley to the ‘Hohe Kaiser’ near Kufstein.”

Sacred buildings in Rinn

The beautiful church in Rinn-Judenstein, constructed in 1670, enjoys an idyllic location. The church was originally built as a pilgrimage church based on a blood libel. However, its pilgrimage status was revoked by Innsbruck’s Bishop Reinhold Stecher in 1994. Today, the little Baroque church serves as a memorial for abused children and adolescents and is also a popular church for weddings.
