About Baden-baden

Baden-Baden, which is the first town welcoming autumn in South America, is a beautiful town with its perfect view of the Rhine River and Murg Valley as well as its atmosphere giving inspiration to the Dostoevsky's The Gambler novel. “Baden” derives from the german word “Bad” meaning “Bath” in English. The town is known for its hot springs which welcome a great number of visitors in every season. The healing waters coming from a depth of 2000 meters reach 68 degrees and are said to be healing for many problems. The location of the town close to the Swiss and French borders and its very green nature extending on the foothills of the Black Forest are among the attractive factors in addition to its healing springs. The buildings surrounding the 3 kilometers long Lichtentaler Allee Park with 350-year-old giant trees, old churches and the Frieder Burda Museum are also among the places worth seeing in the town. While walking on the streets of Baden-Baden which consist of the long paths covered with trees, you can hear the peace notated by Schumann, Brahms and List.
