The German city of Baden-Baden is a world-renowned oasis of wellbeing and relaxation, and a much loved centre for European history and culture. Just a short walk from the legendary thermal spas is the Hotel am Sophienpark – a luxurious privately run 4-star hotel with a grand past. In the 19th century the hotel was at the heart of Baden-Baden’s decadent social scene. Today, the Hotel am Sophienpark captures all the elegance and historic charm of the era. Its elegant rooms are full of character. Each has its own individual style, many with balconies that overlook the park and the hotel’s lovely garden. In such calm and soothing surroundings every day is a joy.
During winter, the Christmas market in front of the Kurhaus comes to life. Festive huts infused with the aroma of roasted almonds, gingerbread and mulled wine provide a special Christmas ambience. And who doesn’t love to ice-skate? An open-air ice skating rink on the Augustaplatz is just a few steps from the hotel. On 6 December, Santa Claus is landing in a hot air balloon in front of the Kurhaus to hand out gifts to the children. Tradition, charm and the magic of Christmas, it’s all here in Baden-Baden. And then of course, there is the snow.
Visitors also come to Baden-Baden for its famous art and culture. The Festival Hall is one of the largest classical music venues in Europe and there are a number of essential museums. Baden-Baden’s healthy outlook is characterised by the Black Forest National Park; with clean air, fantastic landscapes, tranquil parks, it’s the perfect place to unwind and rejuvenate.
The Hotel am Sophienpark makes the perfect base to explore all that this historic city has to offer.
