Baden-Baden is off the beaten path. Between the wonderous mountains, the quaint cobblestone streets and the beautifully manicured gardens, here you will find a culture that has blossomed since the time of the Romans.
The name means literally 'bath-bath,' and that is not meerely by chance. The baths are a wonderful way to relax after reaching the peak of the nearby hills, from which you can see for ages into southern France and northern Switzerland. Or stop by the magnificent casino; better bring your tux, Mr. Bond!
