      I didn’t realize there were ruins you can walk through. Where are they? We may have to head back up there at some point.

        Laurel may be talking about the two medieval castles in Helenental, close to Baden? I know they’ve been on my list for a while now!

    Funny it kind of reminds me of Austria. At least the architecture.

      Hmm howso? I guess the grandness of the resort architecture could be similar to some of the Viennese stuff. Or maybe just all built in a similar era.

      It does feel quite resort-y. Maybe net time we will try one of the spas, though need to find one of the clothing allowed ones.

    Beautiful town! This photos show that Baden Baden is so much more than just baths and spas. Makes me want to visit!

      You should. It is a good day trip from Karlsruhe or Freiburg and a nice place to just walk around.

    That ice-cream looks delicious! It makes me miss gelaterias so bad! Baden Baden looks like a beautoful town. Never been there. Is is a casino town as well? Somehow I remember that about it…

      I think there was a Casino, but that isn’t our thing so we didn’t go hunting it out. The ice cream was great. Liquor based sauces on cool cie cream. I am quite proud of my pictures as well.
      Yeah, Ice Cream is not really the same in the US is it?
