Not everything was better in the good old days – but there was much that looked better. That’s why we made few changes to the original design of our restaurant. The wooden floorboards, ornate stucco ceiling, wall mirrors and imposing chandelier of the “Aida” restaurant make for a perfect setting that recalls scenes from a Henry James novel. Fin-de-siècle Baden-Baden at its finest.

Opening times

The AIDA Restaurant opens two hours before performances, during intermissions and after every performance.
