Yesterday I made a day trip to Baden Baden with the Baden-Württemburg day ticket, (which if you’re traveling in southwest Germany you should consider buying. It’s 23 euros for a day to use any regional train or bus in Baden-Württemburg and then 5 additional euros for each additional passenger up to 5 on a single ticket.)
I loooved this town. The trees were in full bloom and there were cute cafés everywhere. I had some of the best Chinese food I’ve ever had for lunch and one of the best Döner I’ve ever had for dinner.
My favorite part of the day was going to the Caracalla Therme Spa for a few hours bathing in the hot mineral water that Baden Baden is so famous for. There were a few pools, a hot bath and a cold bath (which I was too much of a pansy to immerse myself into completely). I felt so relaxed.
I loved visiting Baden Baden but I equally enjoy a relaxing day in Freiburg. Here are some photos of Vauban, Altstadt and the black forest near Littenweiler:
