Winter in Baden-Baden
A winter fairytale in the Black Forest with lots of possibilities.
Experience one of the most beautiful times of the year in Baden-Baden! Take a stroll through the quiet and snowy park Lichtentaler Allee and make a stopover in one of the many cozy cafes. Get active on the ski slopes and toboggan runs of the Black Forest and enjoy the fresh air and the magnificent views over the Black Forest. Baden-Baden is also diverse in winter - experience it yourself!
There is nothing like a relaxing spa day when the temperatures are icy and the snow falls from the sky. On more than 4000 m², the Caracalla Spa offers plenty of space for soothing relaxation and long bathing pleasure in the hot thermal water. Or experience the Roman bathing culture, combined with Irish hot air baths in Friedrichsbad.
On cold days you also like to dream far away from the sea when the warm sea salt breeze blows around your nose. Unfortunately, we can not offer you a holiday by the sea, but the healing effect of the sea climate can be found in our sea salt grotto.
Do not feel like trudging through the snow? How about a carriage ride through winter Baden-Baden? Immersed in a fur blanket, Baden-Baden can be discovered so much more relaxed.
If you would like a little more exercise on the exploration we recommend a refreshing walk through the Lichtenatler Allee and trips to the quiet parks of the city. Also in the winter months there are regular public tours in German and English.
Or is it better to go higher? How about a trip to the winter mountain of Baden-Baden - the Merkurberg? The Merkurbergbahn takes you through the winter through the daily from 10.00 bis 22.00 clock to the summit of Mercury. From there you can enjoy a wonderful view of winter Baden-Baden, the Rhine plain and Alsace. Get out of the city, enjoy the peace and quiet - that's what you can do on the Merkur! On a forest walk around the game reserve, for example.
Of course, you will not come too short culturally in the winter. Baden-Baden is spreading its treasures even in the cold. A walk through the wintry Lichtentaler Allee leads to the most important art stations in the city. Walk through the various exhibitions that the museums hold ready for you and let the many different facets of the artists and museums take their toll.

Unfortunately, we can not tell you everything. They should come and see for themselves.
