3 Reasons to go to Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa
We’re delighted to announce that Baden-Baden has been granted UNESCO World Heritage status – a recognition of the cultural significance of this fine spa town’s historic centre, including the stunning buildings such as the Festspielhaus, Kurhaus, baths and Trinkhalle. Not to mention grand hotels such as our own Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa, of course… And also the leafy Lichtentaler Allee park which provides the beautiful pastoral setting for the hotel. It’s this combination of natural beauty with sophisticated urban architecture – including graceful contemporary additions such as the Richard Meier-designed Museum Frieder Burda – which gives Baden-Baden its singular charm. We congratulate the many campaigners who have strived for UNESCO status on this well-deserved accolade.
The Black Forest is almost as well known for its scenic road trips as it is its gateau and cuckoo clocks, which is why we’ve put together one of our own. Guests can enjoy a chauffeur-driven tour around some of the region’s must-see locations in a VW Samba kown as Oskar – the first member of our historic Brenners Fleet. Or, if you enjoy driving yourself, we can direct you to some of the legendary ‘switchbacks’ much loved by automotive grand tourists which the area is renowned for.
For the hopeless romantics among us, Baden-Baden’s Rose Garden is a must. Baden-Baden is often referred to as the Rose Capital of Germany, and the "Rosengarten am Beutig" more than lives up to that title. The garden is a maze of rose-covered arches, rose beds, rose shrubs and walkways lined with roses of countless varieties and colours. Visitors can vote on their favourite rose, which, given the competition, might take some time. It is generally agreed that this is a rose garden with very few equals. Indeed, the World Federation of Rose Societies recently presented the garden with the ‘Award of Garden Excellence’.
