This time for my vacation, I decided to visit the best spa town in the world, Baden Baden. The spas are mineral-rich and this is what makes it famous from the Roman times. It is also one of the most magnificent towns that you can visit in the world. The city filled me with some unique vibrancy. In case you are planning to visit Baden Baden any time soon, here are some things that you should check out.
This is a park that you will find at the center of the city. It is on the bank of Oos River. This park is just filled with various trees. A stroll among nature wasn’t a bad idea after all. Do not miss out on the Gönneranlage, the garden that has more than 400 different types of roses. Isn’t that something great?
Visiting Baden Baden and not visiting the steepest and the longest funicular railway which carries people to the summit of Merkur Mountain would have been a mistake. When you reach the top, you can take a lift to the platform to view where you can get a glimpse of the panorama of the city of Karlsruhe, the upper Rhine, and the Black Forest Mountain. Just lie down over the grass to breathe in the fresh air of nature. There is also a playground for children.
Altes Schloss Hohenbaden
Hohenbaden Castle had been built in 1102. Having a countryside surrounding, the castle offers an incredible view. It had been made by the Margraves of Limburg. You will be surprised to know that there are over 100 rooms in this castle. Visit this historical site to spend some among the decorative ruins. To get a panoramic view, I climbed up the tower. You can also visit the dungeon if you want. I am sure that this castle is never going to disappoint you.
