"Baden-Baden" Karlsruhe Off The Beaten Path Tip by Leipzig
Karlsruhe Off The Beaten Path: 75 reviews and 191 photos
Baden-Baden, the famous and fashionable spa, rests in a wooded valley and is atop the extensive underground hot springs that gave the city its name (Baden=Bathe). Roman legions of the emperor Caracalla discovered the springs. The leisure classes of the 19th century rediscovered the bubbling waters, establishing Baden-Baden as the unofficial summer residence of many European royal families. Their palatial homes and stately villas still grace its tree-lined avenues.
