One of BB's main attractions is the Lichtentalerallee, the linear park with open space, trees, flowers and a river... offering a wonderful way to relax from urban sightseeing.

You can start in town, work your leisurely way to the end, then either walk back ot take the bus.

This brief tour starts at the far end then works slowly back into town.

Whichever way you go, provided the weather's with you, it's a delightful way to spend part, or even the whole day.

And don’t be surprised if it takes just a little longer than you expected!

There’s refreshment along the way! If you’re feeling peckish, why not stop by the Café Bellevue just across the river, for a Greek Salad and a beer. Carry on along the park and you’re in the city almost without knowing it, for park merges imperceptibly into city-scape, with paved squares and fountains, then the usual spa and casino facilities – and perhaps an afternoon concert!

The city’s almost entirely pedestrian, from the larger squares to the narrow streets. No shortage of places to eat, something to suit every taste and every pocket, as the tourist guides put it! Our preference is the Löwenbräu café restaurant in the heart of the old town. You can sit out on the terrace and watch the world go by, or if chilly, there are several pleasant indoor spaces. Here you won’t get square glass plates decorated with a few morsels of edible art. The food is good and well-prepared, not plain, not fancy, but nicely in between. The kitchens are open to view as you go inside. Being owned by a brewery, you can be sure the beer’s good.    So... Prost! Your good health! And we wish you a wonderful stay in Baden-Baden – your editors at Byways Travel.

Getting there:
Travel to Baden-Baden is so convenient. Deutsche Bahn runs an express service north-south from Hamburg to Basel (Switzerland), stopping at Frankfurt Airport on the way, and B-B of course. There used to be a short branch line from B-B mainline station into town, but that closed long ago, and buses now run frequently from the mainline station into and through town then along the valley to Lichtental village.
