Description

Baden-Baden Kur & Tourismus GmbH · Alle Rechte vorbehalten

\n\u00a0The Museum Frieder Burda, built by New York star architect, Richard Meier, is the jewel in the crown at the heart of \"Lichtentaler Allee\", a splendid area of parks and gardens. The Staatliche Kunsthalle, which is linked to the Museum Frieder Burda by a glass bridge, shows international contemporary art. It is an excellent place to take in the visual arts, from the avant-garde to the present.
\n\u00a0The Faberg\u00e9 Museum - the first and only museum of its kind in the world - shows with over 700 exhibits the wide range of work by Carl Faberg\u00e9.
The traditional Kurhaus Baden-Baden is still the social hub of the town, hosting glamorous balls and stylish events the whole year round. Formerly known as the \"Konversationshaus\", it also houses the world-famous Casino Baden-Baden, designated the \"most beautiful casino in the world\" by Marlene Dietrich, which invites visitors from around the world to try their luck at classic games like roulette, blackjack or poker.<\/p>\n

<\/a><\/p>\n

Festivals & events<\/h3>\n

Baden-Baden offers top-notch events all year round, including exciting international horse races, the international vintage car festival in the Kurgarten, romantic orchestral castle concerts in the local wine region, called \"Rebland\", and the traditional Christmas market at the end of the year. \u00a0<\/p>\n

<\/a><\/p>\n

Shopping at its best & culinary treats<\/h3>\n

There is exclusive shopping with a stylish ambience at boutiques in the town centre, and charming little shops at the Kurhaus colonnade. \"Chocoholics\" will be in heaven when they go to the traditional Confiserie Rumpelmayer or celebrate the traditional \"coffee time\" at the \"Caf\u00e9 K\u00f6nig\u201c coffee house. Gourmets can enjoy fine local cuisine and international delicacies at many restaurants in the town centre that have been awarded stars and chef's hats. A hot tip for connoisseurs is the \"Rebland\", the local wine region of Baden-Baden, with its delightful sun-drenched countryside, south-west of Baden-Baden. \u00a0<\/p>\n

<\/a><\/p>\n

In the heart of nature<\/h3>\n

The \"Lichtentaler Allee\" parks and gardens are a work of art crafted from trees, streams and flowers, opulently decorated with beautiful monuments from the Belle Epoque. Nature-lovers can also enjoy fascinating views and splendid walking paths on the Merkur Mountain, which towers over Baden-Baden reaching a height of 668 metres.<\/p>","geocoordinates":{"longitude":8.2364241,"latitude":48.7602401},"highlight":false,"id":"6e955822-e056-4908-af26-b87889f2cb02","invisible":false,"latitude":48.7602401,"license":"none","locale":"en","longitude":8.2364241,"name":"Baden-Baden","sourceInformationLink":"","tipFamous":false,"tipHighlight":false,"tipIdyllic":false,"tipNatural":false,"tipOffTheTrack":false,"tipOnlyHere":false,"tipPopular":false,"tipTypicalForRegion":false,"type":"area","updatedAt":"2022-03-22T13:52:17","primaryCategory":{"id":"f1f04738-d0d7-46cb-9341-738fd4f8861a","name":"City","nameWithParents":"Area \u00bb Location \u00bb City","rootline":["f82359f3-b904-409d-a6bc-d70527e38d8f","f1f04738-d0d7-46cb-9341-738fd4f8861a"],"rootlineNames":["Area","Location","City"],"type":"city","invisible":false},"address":null,"client":{"id":"8afe2b7b-6698-4793-8cf1-78d7e2ab8b86","name":"Baden-Baden","url":"https:\/\/www.baden-baden.com\/","logo":null,"legalClient":{"id":"8afe2b7b-6698-4793-8cf1-78d7e2ab8b86","name":"Baden-Baden","url":"https:\/\/www.baden-baden.com\/","logo":null}},"author":"Baden-Baden Kur & Tourismus GmbH","copyright":"","externalIds":{"toursprung":"20473168","toubizLegacy":"city.2776","tomasId":"FIT00020070000011622","outdoorActiveId":"1023047","toubizLegacyRemoteId":"location_19"},"languages":["de","en","fr"],"awards":[],"permissions":{"read":true,"write":false,"delete":false},"classifications":[],"webMediaLinks":{"youtubeVideo":[{"id":"0144f895-b251-4304-819d-e61a925eb1e4","type":"youtubeVideo","url":"https:\/\/youtu.be\/34vn-b84l7M","title":null,"description":null,"sorting":999,"createdAt":"2021-08-25 16:03:11","updatedAt":"2021-08-25 16:03:11"}],"webcam":[{"id":"e8d05957-9a11-4735-b9ba-ef0e3cb91661","type":"webcam","url":"https:\/\/visit.baden-baden.de\/wetter-webcam","title":null,"description":null,"sorting":999,"createdAt":"2021-08-25 16:03:08","updatedAt":"2021-08-25 16:03:08"},{"id":"91228952-1cc9-495a-88b2-e962178d6248","type":"webcam","url":"https:\/\/visit.baden-baden.de\/wetter-webcam","title":null,"description":null,"sorting":999,"createdAt":"2021-08-25 16:03:07","updatedAt":"2021-08-25 16:03:07"}]},"sourceSystemInformation":[{"name":"mein.toubiz","createdItem":false,"lastTouchedAt":"2022-03-22T13:52:17","firstTouchedAt":"2022-02-28T08:36:41","comment":null}],"area":{"zipCodes":[]}}],"areaAccommodations":[],"areaHighlights":[],"areaParking":[],"areaPublicTransport":[],"discoveries":[],"eventRelatedPoints":[],"experienceMeetingPoint":[],"gastronomy":[],"generic":[],"hosts":[],"connectedPoints":[],"pointGettingThereParking":[],"relatedContacts":[],"sights":[],"snowGear":[],"snowSlopes":[],"snowTrails":[],"snowTransportation":[],"tours":[],"tourAccommodations":[],"tourContact":[],"tourEndParking":[],"tourEndPublicTransport":[],"tourInfrastructure":[],"tourRefreshmentPoints":[{"abstract":"
