The 4 star Radisson Blu Badischer Hof Hotel in Baden-Baden is my tip for a perfect cultural and wellness weekend. The hotel is a former Capuchin monastery and some of the rooms are in this old part although there is also a modern annex. The hotel was renovated in 2016 and I can’t say if this is still the case, but when I stayed the baths in the rooms of the old monastery part had 3 taps – hot, cold and a third for thermal spa water, enabling you to have your own private spa treatment! It is situated in a private park, close to the city centre and just a few minutes walk from the Festspielhaus (opera house), the Kurhaus with its beautiful gardens and the historic casino. I believe it is the only hotel in Baden-Baden with its own thermal spring, and this feeds the indoor and outdoor thermal pools. In addition the wellness centre includes a heated indoor swimming pool, sauna and a range of medical and beauty treatments. The hotel restaurant is pleasant and offers regional and international specialities.
