Destination Baden
vibrant cultural and spa resort

The lively city of Baden is a spa destination, city of culture, conference venue and shopper's paradise. There are a wide range of leisure and tourism activities with something for everyone within walking distance.


The Town Tower

The town tower, built in the 15th century, can be seen from a distance. It bears the colors of the city of Baden.

It has been renovated several times and damages have been repaired.
The tower served from 1846 to 1985 as a district prison with some cells. Today, however, it has no permanent use. It is visited during the city tour "Witches, Murderers, Prostitutes and Arsonists" and is used from time to time for public events.
