We spent a night in Baden-Baden this Labor Day weekend. We went to the Friedrichsbad, and I would highly recommend getting both the soap and brush massage and creme massage. We walked around this super cute town, which reminded me of Newport, RI. If you go, definitely take a stroll along the Lichtentaler Allee and take a peek into the Gönneranlage, a free rose garden. If your interested in rose gardens, then you have to take a drive (about 10 min. from town) and visit the Rosenneuheiten-garten., it's on Moltkestrasse. This garden costs a euro to enter and is just beautiful!!
A visit to the Casino while in town is a fun thing to do at night. Jeans are not allowed and we think a sports coat is mandatory for men. It costs 5 euros to enter and you must present your passport to get your entrance ticket which lasts the day.
