Top 10 Things to do in Baden-Baden, Germany

September 30, 2017 Tynisha Seiler

Nestled at the foot of the Black Forest in South Germany, Baden-Baden is a chic destination for those who fancy a dip in its famous salt- and radon-rich thermal hot springs. The town has been a popular destination for so long that it's starting to show its age, but not to worry. It's still very classy, picturesque and well-maintained. (The Dame Julie Andrews of German spa towns, if you will.) Sporty types will find an abundance of opportunities to enjoy golf, tennis, horseback riding and skiing nearby in winter.

Mercedes-Benz Museum

Reviewed By navilluso55 - Sydney, Australia

The museum is an amazing building.
The cars displayed are not all mint, as new cars, as they are no doubt loaned out for motoring display events and I think that what I like about the museum.
These are real cars in fantastic condition well displayed for everyone to get close to and learn how Mercedes progressed the development of cars over the past 100 years.
A must for anyone with an interest in cars and for those who are ambivalent, suck it up and enjoy it with your friends.
I really enjoyed seeing real cars and some had prices on them so we could appreciate where they fit into our car buying budgets, mostly outside my budget, but nice to be close to the cars of my dream. A great day.

On the Tauck Tours Christmas Markets Along the Rhine River we went ashore to visit the Markets in Baden-Baden. This park is especially lovely at dusk with the Christmas lights of nearby residences.

Christmas and Medieval Market

Reviewed By acandkc - Richland, Washington

What a market, what a day! Everyone should experience such a Christmas at least once in their lives..it's just what you think it should be! Lots of lights, lots of Christmas decorations, lots of happy people, and best of all, lots of gluwein! When you buy one of the many different types of gluwein you pay extra for the cup...if you want to return it, you'll get your deposit back, but it sure makes a great souvenir of a wonderful day!

Wildpark Pforzheim

Was there with our grandkids. Had much fun and it was very interesting to watch all the different animals. Were a bit late in the afternoon so we couldn't do the climbing in the trees. Its a cheap entertaining. You just pay a little parking fee and entrance is included.

It's a nice little trip from town and well worth a visit. A short hike goes around the Blautopf with plenty of opportunities to snap some pictures.

Mercedes-Benz Factory Plant Tour

Reviewed By eng333 - New Jersey

The main reason for my stop in Stuttgart was to take this tour. I had visited munich a few years back and missed out on the bmw tour because they were closed that week and have been wanting to do a tour ever since. I booked way ahead of time to ensure I had a spot. The tour was at 10:30am, they ask you to register 20min before though you can probably show up later. They do start right on time. They start with a video so if you are a minute or two late you can still come in during the video I guess. There is a free bus that takes you from the Böblingen station to the Mercedes customer center. The bus leaves approx 10min after the hour and half hour. The ride takes about 10min. You can easily take the S1 train from Stuttgart down which seemed to arrive right on the half hour. The tour itself takes you to two buildings. One where there are people assembling components into the cars on a moving assembly line.
The second where everythign is done by robot machines. They let you get up pretty close. The guide was very knowledgeable. They say the tour is 2hrs but its really more like 90min

Baumwipfelpfad Schwarzwald

The Black Forest treetop walk opened on September 26th, 2014 and we are now looking forward to your visit! The treetop walk is 1,250 meters long and up to 20 meters high. It has activity and learning stations, and its highlight is the 40 meter high, architecturally unique view tower. Once you reach its uppermost platform, you will be rewarded with a beautiful view out over thick woodlands of the Black Forest.

Visited with four school age kids. Folks of all ages were there and it is accessible to everyone. Price was reasonable. The view from the end was terrific. Lots of trails in the area and you can spend the whole day hiking if you desire. We did a total of about 5 km and then went into town for lunch. Fun time.

Bluhendes Barock

Reviewed By rdubbs08 - Edmond, Oklahoma

As we planned our 2 week European adventure we came across the pumpkin festival in Ludwigsburg and immediately decided it was a must - after all, it is the WORLD's largest!
The festival is held on the grounds of Bluhendes Barock - a GORGEOUS setting for so many gourds! Even without the festival, the palace and grounds are fantastic to walk around. With the festival - you will find EVERYTHING pumpkin! There was pumpkin art, pumpkin food and pumpkin WINE!
We spent several hours enjoying the day and our 19 month old LOVED it!
This was a unique event and somewhat off the beaten path compare to the typical "must-do's" in Europe. We did not get to really explore Ludwigsburg as we were there for less than 24 hours, but the festival was the perfect way to put us in the spirit of fall!

Motorworld Region Stuttgart

Reviewed By Hanski_Panski - Watford, United Kingdom

We were checked into a themed room which was really nice, it was a drive in movie themed room. Our room had a bed shaped like a car. I wouldn't bother staying at the hotel if you dont get a themed hotel room.
It overlooked motorworld itself.
However it was absolutely boiling hot at night and none of us got any sleep due to lack of air conditioning. Breakfast wasn't included and the buffet was quite expensive be careful there.
I would say this hotel is good for children who love cars and adults with a car passion. There's a museum for car enthusiasts.

Wasserfallsteig

Reviewed By Katiemilia - Helsinki, Finland

We visited Bad Urach on our roadtrip kind of accidentally and had no idea what to do there. We heard about this waterfall and decided to go and see it. It exceeded all our expectations and was beyond beautiful! The walking route was nice and quite short. I recommend to go up behind the waterfall, although it might be a bit wet and slippery. 2 hours including walking was enough for us to have a nice waterfall experience.
