    Watching over Baden and surr.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Maybe you have noticed while reading on my pages I normally try and get to highest point of the location in question in order to get some perspectives...

    ... so in Baden as well.

    I suggest you climb up the stairs from the side of the old town (Altstadt) and have a look at the spectacular scenery.

    On clear days you may see as far as to the Alps in the south and might get a glimps of the Schwarzwald (D) in the north...

    Covered wooden bridge

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Check out the whole of Baden, but don't forget to go down to the river Limmat which divides the city in two parts - actually Wettingen is almost instantly on the other side.

    Once you'v reached the old craftman's part of the town you'll easily find this amazing bridge.

    It looks so different from what you are used to see. Take a good look at the facade of the bridge, stunning, millions of little wooden pieces build the wall of the bridge.

    Church in Baden

    by sinoda Written Jun 30, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The church itelf doesn't differ much from the other chrches in the kanton.

    What is interesting though, is the little stage setting on the north side of the church. There is a little scene build which represents a situation from the Gospel.

    You ought to have a look. It is quite nice.

    Walk to the castle ruins

    by sswagner Written Jun 21, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The ruins of Stein Castle overlook the town of Baden. There are clear views of the surrounding countryside, the old town, the train station, and the river below. From the center of the old town, a narrow alley with stairs begins the climb up to the ruins. The trail ascends past small gardens and homes. In some areas, it feels like a nature trail. There are small animals such as lizards (did not expect these in Switzerland) and some wildflowers. The views are very rewarding, and it is easy to see the historic town below. Not much is left of the castle, but there are still some walls and a few other structures remaining. Even with the castle in ruins, it is still nice to look at and enjoy the visit.

    The Old Town

    by sswagner Written Jun 21, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a great town to simply walk around and explore. On a warm day, there will be some nice outdoor cafes in town. Some of the highlights are the colorful church and steeple, the medieval clock tower, and the covered bridge that spans the Limmat River. If arriving from the train station, at first the area will seem like a modern shopping mall. A few blocks of walking will lead to the nicer areasThere are a few museums as well as the trip up to the ruined castle to complement the visit here.

    Visit a Casino

    by gaolei Updated Mar 28, 2007

    The Baden Grand Casino is an incredibly small casino. There is an upper room with table type games and a lower room with slots. It is hard to judge how many slots are here, but I would guess 200.

    There are actually 2 sections to the slot room, smoking and non smoking. The smoking side is double the size of non smoking. The upper level table game area also has an entry fee of about 10 dollars. I have never been in a casino with an entry fee before.
