Plan A Trip to Picturesque Baden-Baden
The spa town of Baden-Baden is the sister town of Menton and can be found in the West of the German state of Baden Württemberg. The name of this town can be literally translated into English as 'baths-baths' hence how the town adopted the relaxation and recuperation concept into the flare of the town. With many spas and baths still available here today, a holiday here is good for those wanting to kick back and recuperate on their holidays in Baden-Baden. Two of thermal baths you can find here include the Caracalla Spa and the “Friedrichsbad”. There is also a wide range of spa-based hotels that offer various spa treatments to envy those in Leamington Spa, in England.
Where To Go In This Picturesque Town
As Baden-Baden is found on the edge of the French border close to Strasbourg and also the German Black Forest, the countryside and landscape here is truly breathtaking. Stroll around the town centre and pop into some of the boutiques and stores; perfect for those who like to dapple in a spot of retail therapy! For a great walk in the daytime and evenings, the Lichtentaler Allee is a park home to Baden-Baden's casino. A great place to walk around, and also sit outside during the summertime. For those theatre fans, the theatre in Baden-Baden, also known as the “Festspielhaus” is the perfect location to visit. There are over 300 events taking place here every year and the theatre is re-nowned to be being one of the best in the whole of Germany.
A stay in Baden-Baden accommodation is great any time of the year. Although this picturesque city is great for a summer visit, it is a treat to coming during the winter for the Christmas Markets alone. There is normally various choirs and bands performing on the stages here as well as orchestras. Over 50 stands here offering everything from little pieces of craft-work to toys and artistic wood monuments. There is even a living crèche made up of real animals – all supervised by a shepherd! Sample the German cuisine here from everything to sausage, roasted almonds and pretzels, wash them all down with a mug of mulled wine; you will definitely need it as the temperatures are pretty chilly during winter! Other nearby locations that also offer great German Christmas Markets include Karlsruhe and Stuttgart, which are both easily accessible with public transport or if you hire a car, they are a just a ride away on the autobahn! If you are coming from the UK, make sure you drive on the other side of the road and know the German road rules! Accommodation Baden-Baden – perfect for those coming as a family, a large group or as a couple. Plan your trip today and have a great stay in the South of Germany.
