With a capacity of 2,500 seats, the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden is one of the largest classical music venues in Europe. The building features a unique architecture as the opera hall sits on the trackbed of a former railway station, whose neo-classicist structure serves as the entrance hall of the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden. The reconstructed opera house was designed by the Viennese architect Wilhelm Holzbauer in the mid-1990’s in accordance with ideal acoustic values calculated by the acclaimed Munich-based physicist Karlheinz Müller.

Life

The OED defines it a s “quality of being graceful and stylish in appearance or manner”, while the Romans celebrated the “clarity” of elegance. Baden-Baden owes its elegance to bold lines, to the play of light and to a certain French flair that does not take itself too seriously. Or, as Bill Clinton succinctly put it: “Baden-Baden is so nice that you have to name it twice.”

Woods and Water

Shades of Green: With this view in the morning, the whole day feels like a dream. In Baden-Baden the Black Forest meets the exotic plant fashions of the 19th century. Redwoods grow here within a German mountain flora. And somehow the trees stand for the many people of different cultures who come to find ease and comfort in Baden-Baden.

Relaxation

A visit to the Friedrichsbad or a walk along the Panorama hiking trail allow visitors to Baden-Baden to leave their busy daily lives behind. Even Mark Twain suspected that he was on to something very special when he took the waters at the Roman-Irish Bath, and he was right! The healing powers of the thermal springs are timeless, offering ever new opportunities for a city with a proud history that keeps reinventing itself.

Fine Food

However you prefer to travel, Baden-Baden is easy to get to. Situated directly on the A5 motorway that runs from Central to Southern Germany, the pretty city offers a number of other unbeatable advantages: an international airport (almost) of its own, the mighty river Rhine on its doorstep and some of the most scenic routes into the Black Forest, which must be travelled at low speed in order to savour the experience. However, taking things slowly is part of the pleasure of visiting this beautiful part of the world.
