Baden-Baden is famous for its luxurious hotels, spas, casino, and classy shopping. It is the hot springs in this lovely Black Forest town that put “Bad” in Baden-Baden and many visitors travel here especially to visit the famous day spas. Many hotels have their own spas but the historic Roman-Irish Friedrichsbad and the modern Caracalla Therme are day spas open to all visitors. The Friedrichsbad is the more up-market and formal spa while families will also enjoy the larger Caracalla Therme.

  • Bad in German literally means bath but when added to a town name it indicates a spa. Baden-Baden justifiably got Bad double. The town has no less than 23 hot springs, which boil water  from around 2,000 m (6,600 ft) below the ground to the surface at temperatures of up to 68°C (154°F). Daily, around 800,000 liters (208,000 gallons) of mineral-rich waters feed the fountains and spas of Baden-Baden.
