Baden-Baden

During Roman times, the thermal town of Baden-Baden, located between the Black Forest and Rhine Valley, was known as Aquae. It wasn’t until the 19th century, however, that Baden-Baden earned its nickname as the “summer capital of Europe,” where composers like Johannes Brahms and Clara Schumann flocked for inspiration. The town was redeveloped in the end of the 18th century when the first promenade homes were built along the Oos riverbanks. As the thermal waters started drawing more attention in the late 19th century, spa palaces began popping up on Florentine Hill, and Baden-Baden, which blends its Roman background with Neo-Renaissance architecture, became a society hotspot.
