Art at Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa
For Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa, the history and development of the city of Baden-Baden has a formative influence. And this also includes the size and expanse of a Grand Hotel, which nevertheless conveys a sense of comfort.
Aware of its regional roots and 150 years of tradition, the grand hotel promotes the exploration of modern art and its inspiring creative structures.

The value and change of corals
The two artists were aware of the importance of drawing attention to global warming.
Twin sisters Margaret and Christine Wertheim, originally from Australia, focused their attention on coral mortality.
Their unique idea was quickly noticed around the world and encouraged thousands to participate in its making.
Partly woven, partly made of plastic, they arrived in Baden-Baden.
In collaboration with the Museum Frieder Burda, we have exhibited one of these crocheted meiserpieces from March to June.
Exclusively for you in our hotel lobby.

Body. Gaze. Power. A Cultural History of the Bath.
With its Great National Exhibition "Body. Gaze. Power. A Cultural History of the Bath." the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden goes out into the city. With numerous works and objects, the show was extended into the urban space.
As a long-standing cooperation partner, Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa is participating with the work "Nudes III" by Daniel Dewar & Grégory Gicquel.
The location of the freestanding work on the lawn in the foreground of the Fritz & Felix fountain at the edge of the Museum Mile was deliberately chosen in this context.
- Fritz & Felix Restaurant
In addition to a modern interior by the British designer Robert Angell, Fritz & Felix has a curated collection of bespoke art.
The bar stages black-and-white sketches with local motifs by the artist Soyoung Kim. The open kitchen area introduces an abstraction of Baden-Baden landscape with its lakes and forests by Karolina Skowronska. All this is complemented in the restaurant by an expressive set of original hand painted canvases inspired by the seasons of the contemporary artist Tegen Richardson. And the prints from Elegant Clutter are inspired by the organic forms of mushrooms and seed pods.

KARL COOL - An art tribute to Karl Lagerfeld
KARL COOL at Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa is a surprising and very personal tribute by prominent artists to the great German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld. Among the exhibitors are renowned contemporary artist Gregor Hildebrandt, top international graffiti artist MadC, world-renowned light artist Susanne Rottenbacher, and Berlin’s photo artist and curator Kiki Kausch, whose first work was in fact a portrait of Lagerfeld. Little-known images for Rolls Royce are being made available for the exhibition for the first time exclusively by publisher and Lagerfeld confidant Gerhard Steidl.

MAD C | Graffiti Art
MadC’s style has its roots in graffiti art, resulting in vividly coloured, dynamic calligraphy and transparency where all layers shine through and thereby capture the energy of painting on a massive scale in the street, without using a direct graffiti language. The abstract paintings draw you in and capture the viewer in a universe universally understood, surpassing languages and cultures. Five elements specially designed for her Baden-Baden exhibition enter into an exciting dialogue with the hotel and its green grounds.

Line - Surface - Form - Space - Steel sculptures and wall works
The works of the Forbach steel sculptor Rüdiger Seidt cannot be viewed without their place of origin. Craftsmanship and his artistic power, the intuition and the understanding for the aesthetic form a perfect connection in the works of Rüdiger Seidt.
At the heart of the exhibition are objects in the Brenners Park, in front of Villa Stéphanie and in the rooms of the private pratice of Medical Care partner Dr. S. Marcus Beschnidt.
For his work 'Circletetra' (4 of 7) he was awarded the international "André Evard Kunstpreis" 2019 of the Kunsthalle Messmer in Riegel.
- Visiting Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa and Villa Stéphanie
The Berlin-based artist is known for his black-and-white reverse glass paintings and conceptual photo pieces. In a manual process he composes his motifs by stippling dot by dot on a sheet of glass. In the eye of the beholder these constellations of dots merge and give the impression of naturalistic flower still lives. After finishing a painting, Thilo transfers his own art works into new contexts and surroundings.
