Baden Baden, meaning Bathing is a spa town built on thermal springs at the edge of the Black Forest. My friend and I rode with another event organiser colleague in the Wellness Industry from Wiesbaden to Baden Baden. We had to see what the city has to offer and it surely was all about health and wellness. More than that, I loved the open spaces, greenery and beautiful parks of the city. Its a fairly compace farm and we just walked to the Old Town from our luxury hotel.
I loved Baden-Baden because of the hot springs/cold springs/spas that are a huge part of the Baden-Baden experience. From a rushing river that pushes one along, to an ice-cold waterfall, Baden-Baden's springs offer a multitude of ways to have fun in the water. Baden-Baden is also home to casinos and is very near to the former house of Brahms, which is very interesting to visit.
Spent a weekend here with a boyfriend back in February 2009. The bathing is terrific, the scenery is beautiful, and the food is decent. Would go back, but have to admit in retrospect it is aimed more at fifty-somethings than thirty-somethings.
Home of the story -Hansel and Gretel- beautiful green forest-rolling hills and very old quaint railroad station. Also known as the Black Forest.
