Hotel Reservations in Baden-Baden
Experience decadence and historical intrigue outside your luxury hotel in Baden-Baden! With sports, recreation and relaxation, Baden-Baden is a diverse mix of German history and culture.
This spa town, located on the western foothills of the Black Forest, derives its name from its reputation as a source of hot springs and healing. In fact, the German word "Baden" literally translates to "baths". These springs were known to the Romans and the foundation of the town refers to their visits here for use of the hot springs and vapor baths. Tourists can visit ruins of these 2,000 year old baths, excavated in 1847.
The Spielbank casino is more than 200 years old and has been a popular spot for visiting celebrities attracted to the hot springs. Baden-Baden contains the Faberge Museum, which boasts possession of the famed Rothschild Faberge egg, purchased for nine million pounds. Visitors should also spend an evening at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, Germany's largest opera house and concert hall.
To experience sports and recreation outside the luxury hotels, you can hit the 18-hole golf course in Fremersberg, multiple tennis courts (a popular sport here), and hiking and mountain climbing in the countryside. In the winter, Baden-Baden is a noted skiing destination.
Don't forget to experience a bit of Baden-Baden's rich history while there. You can visit the site of the Old Castle "Hohenbaden", built in 1102, now a ruin since the 15th century. There's also the New Castle (Neues Schloss). Built in the 15th century, it is the former residence of the margraves of Baden and later of the grand dukes of Baden.
