Baden-Baden Travel Guide: 195 reviews and 588 photos

On the slopes between the Rhine plains and the Black Forest sits a beautiful Spa town which is steeped in history and offers its visitors amazing hospitality.
Baden-Baden has a long tradition of treating its guests like royalty. The art of being pampered here dates back to Roman times. Even Europe's first luxury hotel was etablished on the banks of the river Oos. Nowadays thankfully there are hotels to suit all budgets.
Baden-Baden is also famous for its magnificent casino.
Form morning until night there is always something on offer here. Good theatre, spas, historic relics like the Roman Baths and also the beautiful gardens in the centre of the town. Good restaurants are plentiful here too.
The well kept pedestrian area of the town is a great place to wander around and take a drink in one of the cafes.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Something for everyone - not just the rich and famous
  • Cons:A bit overpriced because of where it is.

    BB is great for a visit. Last time I went was with the gluhwein '10 meeting. I tried to get up to the castle from the Stiftchurch but one couldn't.

    Lovely to see what I missed in not making it here last year ;-) I think I would share your prudishness about the Friedrichsbad though!

    A very nice place to relax and be pampered in the spa but I too wouldn't want to visit the nude one!

    Natalie, interesting transportation update. The 205 seems to be the best decision. *winkygrin*

    Nice tips on Baden-Baden. Maybe I'll go back for another look sometime, and perhaps even see an opera at the Festival House (=old railway station).

    Lovely town. Looks like a good place to luxuriate. Frankly I'd rather hang out at a cafe and listen to those street entertainers. Very nice. thank you.
