Baden-Baden is a wealthy spa town at the edge of the Black Forest in Baden Württemberg. The town is located south west Germany, near the border with France – around 1 hour by car from Strasbourg.
Baden-Baden is famous for thermal bath and the Kurhaus complex (built in 1824) with the Spielbank (casino) where also Dostoevsky gambled during his 5 week stay which makes it a popular destination also for Russian tourists. We see the centre and the spa area on this walk among some shopping streets as well as the main sights like the Spielbank and Trinkhalle on this short walk.

Bogner’s latest road trip took him and his fellow curve hunters from Baden-Baden across the Black Forest to Lake Constance and along the German Alpine road to Tegernsee, Berchtesgaden and numerous other wonderful corners of Bavaria.
Along the way, the Porsche convoy stopped at the Dornier aircraft factories, the Gmünd paper mill and a plethora of fabulous hotels such as Ellmau Castle and the Kranzbach.
