Back in the 19th century, the European aristocrats who wintered on the Côte d’Azur would head for Baden-Baden in the summer, 100km west of Stuttgart, for its temperate climate and magical waters. ‘I fully believe I left my rheumatism in Baden-Baden,’ Mark Twain wrote after a fortnight there in 1878. In many ways little has changed. This gateway to the Black Forest remains an enchantingly pretty, prosperous little place, ostensibly built for pleasure. For beyond the appeal of its justly fabled spas, it’s known principally for its casino, its racecourse, its world-class opera festivals (its Festspielhaus is the largest opera house in Germany) and a clutch of excellent museums.
