Baden in Austria is a historic spa town. Already the Romans valued the healing sulfur water.
This movie gives you an overview about the attractions of the town.
The Kurpark is one of the most popular attractions. The origin of this park lies in the Theresiengarten.
This garden was created in 1792 to honor the empress Maria Theresia.
There are a couple of things to see in the park:
like the Lanner and Strauß monument, the mysterious looking Undine Fountain which
was opened 1903 to remember the finishing of the water pipeline in Baden,
the music pavilion where spa concerts are performed during the summer
or the flower clock. The Beethoventemple is located in the upper
part of the Kurpark. You can reach the temple by a beautiful path along the hillside. The
Beethoventemple was built in 1927 on the occasion of the 100th death year of Ludwig van Beethoven
and offers a wonderful view over Baden and the Thermal Region.
The Doblhoffpark is a further highlight in Baden. The origin is a baroque castle park
which was created approximately around 1750. Here you can find besides flowers of all sorts
an old stock of trees, a playground and also some ducks at a nice pond where you can rest
on a park bench or at a cafe. The Rosarium is a part of the Doblhoffpark
and was created in the sixties. The last restoration was in the year 2013. Here you can find approximately
600 kinds of roses at over 90.000 m². At the Hauptplatz in Baden there is the plague
pillar which was constructed in 1713 to celebrate the victory against the plague. Next to it
the town hall is situated which was built in 1815. The Hauptplatz is the center of the spacious pedestrian
area. The Schlossergässchen is a walkway between
the Doblhoffpark and the center of Baden. You shouldn't miss this idyllic alley on your
way to the Doblhoffpark. The St. Stephan Church was constructed around
1827 in the current appearance. But it's history goes further in the past. Already around 1200
there was a church built at this place. The Casino in Baden belongs quite sure to
the most beautiful Casinos in Europe. It is daily opened from 3 o'clock in the afternoon
and is located directly beside the Kurpark. In the summer there is also a bar on the terrace
which is opened in the evening at fair weather. The current building of the Theatre was finished
in 1909 at the Theaterplatz. But there have already been theatre performances since the
17th century in Baden. Today the Römertherme Baden is a modern spa
with over 900m² water surface. The hot sulfur springs in Baden were already known and liked
by the Romans 2000 years ago. In the Pfarrgasse you can discover another
attraction of Baden. The Lumpentürl is a bit hidden between the shop windows in a corner.
It was a small passage in the former city wall which was used by too late home coming
and mostly drunken persons. Due to that the name Lumpentürl which means something like
ragsdoor. The Josefsplatz is a traffic junction in the
town center of Baden. Here you can find besides several bus stops the terminus of the Badnerbahn,
the former Frauenbad with the big columns in the front, which is now a museum, and some
restaurants. You can find all the introduced attractions
