Cruises to Baden-Baden

About Baden-Baden

Germany's chi-chi spa town has been a draw for the upper classes for centuries. They came for its thermal waters, its gardens and parks, and its glamorous casino. Untouched during both World Wars, Baden-Baden continues to attract monied Europeans for extended visits and second homes; it's one of the wealthiest cities in the country.

River cruise lines offer day trips to Baden-Baden on Rhine River itineraries, either as an included or optional excursion. The brave among the group will visit the city's spas, the most historic of which requires you to drop inhibitions and go nude (don't worry, it's all about health, and the experience is decidedly not salacious). Indulge your inner James Bond and dress up for the city's famous Casino, which is even prettier than the one in Monte Carlo. Stop for kaffee (coffee) and kuchen (cake); Baden-Baden is on the edge of the Black Forest, and you can order authentic Schwarzwalder kirschtorte (Black Forest cherry cake). Although there's a lot to see, this is a city built on relaxation -- and the vibe is catching.

Why go to Baden-Baden?

Pros:

This luxe resort town is known for its elaborate spas and thermal waters, and its glamorous casino

Cons:

Nudity is required at the city's most traditional baths, which may be uncomfortable for some visitors

Bottom Line:

Baden-Baden is full of old-school glam and makes for an ultra-relaxing port day

Language?

German is the main language. Many people in the tourist industry speak some English, although you may find you need to pantomime with some attendants at the baths.

Currency & Best Way to Get Money

The currency for Germany is the euro. ATMs are readily available in the city's squares. Credit cards are accepted at the baths and most restaurants.

The port was actually Bad Schandau (not Baden) and was the departure point for the tour of The Bastei, an impressive sandstone pinnacle with great views of the Elbe river. This was the highlight of the cruise.... Read More
