A look at Google Maps will quickly convince you that the Hotel am Markt is surrounded by Baden-Baden's most famous sights such as the Friedrichsbad, Caracalla Therme, Casino, Theater, Frieder Burda Museum and the Festspielhaus. Also many restaurants and coffee shops are in our direct neighborhood. The Kongresshaus is only a short walk away.
We are a charming boutique hotel in the historic city center and are located directly in the Bäderviertel. In a traffic-calmed zone slightly elevated from the pedestrian zone, our guests lodge in an 18th century townhouse that has been redesigned with great attention to detail.
While the pedestrian zone is bustling with life, the market square is a place of decelerating tranquility. Our individually designed rooms ensure coziness with their modern design. Despite all this, the 300 year old history of the house hovers in the corridors. I wonder who has spent the night in these walls?
The surrounding city scenery also offers an unbroken tradition. This is where the Romans built the first thermal baths, and this is where the citizens built their town under the castle. The market place with the town hall and the collegiate church is witness to this history rich in tradition.
Rest and relaxation characterize your nights - this gives you energy during the day for a variety of activities. In the direct neighborhood, the Friedrichsbad and the Caracalla Therme entice you with more than 4000 m² of bathing pleasure in warm thermal water.
In the immediate vicinity, the Black Forest awaits with Germany's most beautiful hiking trail". This leads 45 kilometers on a panoramic path through the Black Forest and around Baden-Baden (according to the "Wandermagazin 2020"). It can be walked in one piece or divided into stages. There are four sections, which are easily accessible by public transportation. The trail overcomes a maximum elevation gain of 1,420 meters along the entire route. One way to start is to take the Merkurbergbahn cable car. It is a meter-gauge funicular railroad that leads up Baden-Baden's local mountain Merkur. The route has a gradient of 23% to a maximum of 58%. From up there you have a fantastic view all the way to the Vosges Mountains, you can watch paragliders take off or simply enjoy an Aperol Spritz in the sun.
In the famous Lichtentaler Allee you can take a relaxed stroll and stop at the museums Frieder Burda, the Kunsthalle and the Stadtmuseum. Worth seeing, especially from the beginning of May until October, is the Gönneranlage, which impresses with a lush flowering of over 10,000 rose bushes in 400 varieties of roses.
Baden-Baden is a spa resort in a class of its own. For centuries it has attracted crowds of guests from near and far thanks to its casino, theater and thermal baths. In recent years, too, the city on the edge of the Black Forest has continued to present itself in a new light, not least thanks to the Festpielhaus, Germany's largest opera and concert house, and the Frieder Burda Museum, and has managed the balancing act between history and modernity.
Baden-Baden is a perfect starting point for hiking, mountain biking or cycling tours, for excursions and activities in the Black Forest. A day trip to Strasbourg, Heidelberg or Freiburg complete the program.
All main attractions are within walking distance and from there you do not need a car for your vacation in Baden-Baden.
