Baden Things to Do

  • Visit a Casino

    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...

  • The Old Town

    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...

  • Walk to the castle ruins

    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....

  • The Hotsprings of Baden

    In the Limmat (river) in Baden there are hot springs. Above the river there are ceveral spas. The spa's are a paying proposition.ThermalBaden Kurplatz 1, CH-5400 Baden/SchweizTel. 056 203 91 12www.thermalbaden.chThermal SchweizerhofKurplatz 3, CH-5400 Baden/ Limmathof Baden, Novum SpaLimmatpromenade 28, CH-5400...

  • Church in Baden

    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.

  • Covered wooden bridge

    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...

  • Rebstock: Soulful French Bistro in Baden

    by ChefBadoit Written Sep 9, 2008

    Baden is a very beautiful place for walking and exploring nooks and crannies. Definitely bring a camera with as much film or disk space as possible. And it is just for the corner of 21 Untere Halde alone. I really mean this when I say, the view from the downward spiraling cobblestone village path of the church in the background, that arrives just to the terrace of this romantic and relaxing french restaurant, is worth it alone to trek there for a drink, apperitif, and the view.
    Even if you don't speak any more Swiss German then "Beer", "Essen", "trinken", or "Gruetzi", the Chef owner of this soulful and natural toned neighborhood restaurant, that most locals say "has the style and passion of a place you might find in Zurich", Chef Didier Mortaigne, will assist you from either Wine or Meal Menu as he fluently speaks French, Swiss German, German, and English.
    The menu consists of a range of fresh fish and steaks, to the ever daily changing Plat du Jour, or Daily Specials. Normally Chef Mortaigne is very creative, pulling on his range of 20 years in kitchens in South Africa, Germany, France, and in Ghana where he owned his last restaurant.

    This is not off on the main strip. Instead if you want to experience Baden with out one ounce of a touristic feel, then this little neighborhood, from when Obere Halde descends, to the restaurant, down to the wood bridge, and up the hill, this village is 15th century homes, and some small artisinal businesses, with a diverse working class of architects, students, financiers, artists, and culinary artists.

    If you have been traveling around Switzerland you will have already noticed 3 principal beer signs in front of doors of restaurants and bars, he does not have this beer. What he does have is Baden brewed Muller Brau, and if you like beer that is more of a full bodied Ale, instead of the many varieties of Pilsner found across Switzerland, then head over here; he has in draft, and it is delicious and fresh.
    It is a great ambience regardless if the terrace is full or the dinning room is just open for 2.
    The Chef will make you at ease.
    Reservations are recommended.

    Favorite Dish: Moules, well Mussels. They aren't always on the menu, as they are a daily Special he offers when he can find them fresh. But they are made in a white wine, tomatoe, bouillon, and my preference with a Curry Cream Sauce. Also, the mountain of fries and mayonnaise on the side, is maybe what puts it over the top for me with a pint of Muller Brau.
    Also, the Creme Brule is a simple dessert, but excellent every time.

Baden Transportation

  • Baden in the SBB network

    Baden as in the intro mentioned is due to its central location a passage city.Most trains from Zurich to Bale/Berne (vice versa) stop here, so it is very easy to catch a train in either direction without checking much with the itinerary.

  • Easily accessible

    Baden is less than half an hour from Zurich by train. There seem to be a couple of departures an hour during the best part of the day. Since I did not want to validate my Swiss Pass until the next day, the return trip from Zurich was about 20 Swiss Francs. There are plenty of places to eat and a large shopping area in the immediate area of the...
