Brenners Parkhotel & Spa, Baden-Baden
Anyone who takes a trip to the traditional spa town of Baden-Baden in the south of Baden-Württemberg can look forward to many delights: top culinary achievements, interesting cultural experiences, the fresh air of the Black Forest! A stay at Brenners Parkhotel & Spa leaves nothing to be desired.
An exquisite gastronomy
All gourmets will feel at home in Brenners Parkhotel & Spa. The “Park-Restaurant” has been awarded two Michelin stars and 17 Gault Millau points. You can also choose from the “Wintergarten” restaurant, which serves Mediterranean cuisine. The “Rive Gauche” restaurant serves French and Mediterranean cuisine. Guests can have breakfast in the “Lichtental” salon, and the terrace is open when the weather is nice. The smokers like to meet in the “Cigar Lounge” in the evening (otherwise the Brenners is a pure non-smoking hotel!). The evening can end with a glass of champagne in the “Oleander Bar”. But the “lounge” is also very cozy, in the afternoon for tea or in the evening when a pianist plays the piano live.
Relaxation in the spa area
The large indoor pool forms the center of the wellness area in Brenners Parkhotel. Comfortable sun loungers are available around the pool, and the view of the hotel garden through the window front stretches out. The Finnish sauna also offers relaxation. Numerous wellness treatments can be booked, e.g. classic massages, aromatic oil and Thai massages, fango packs, underwater massages, water aerobics, beauty treatments. Manicures and pedicures are also available, and the friendly staff at the hair salon are happy to provide pretty hairdos! Sporty guests like to spend half an hour in the fitness center.
The location in Baden-Baden
Brenners Parkhotel is located in the city center of Baden-Baden, but very quietly in the middle of gardens and within sight of the river Oos. Guests can walk to the famous Kurhaus in Baden-Baden and the beautiful spa gardens in just a few minutes – along the Oos in a northward direction. The art museum Frieder Burda (one of the great attractions of Baden-Baden) and the city museum are also not far away. Congress visitors like to stay in Brenners Parkhotel, because it is only 200 m away from the Baden-Baden Congress Center.
Lake Constance is an international lake, parts of which belong to Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Lake Constance, nicknamed the “Swabian Sea”, is the largest and deepest lake in Germany. The longest stretch of 63 kilometers is between Bregenz and Bodman-Ludwigshafen, the widest is Lake Constance with 14 kilometers between Friedrichshafen and Romanshorn. The deepest point is 254 meters.
There are many outstanding and worth seeing castles, monasteries and gardens around Lake Constance.
During a boat trip, it is a pleasure to see the landscape all around from the water. Excursions to the islands of Lindau, Reichenau and Mainau are usually part of the program when visiting Lake Constance.
The island, nicknamed the Flower Island, is the residence of the Bernadotte family and is a dream of flowers in every season. Due to the climatic conditions, tropical and subtropical plants also thrive there. From tulip carpets in spring, to the magnificent rhododendron blooms and the beguiling scent of around 30,000 rose bushes at the time of the rose bloom, to the brightly colored dahlia fields in autumn, Mainau is always worth seeing. Excursion boats dock in the north of the island.
Here in 1991 a remarkable herb garden was laid out within the monastery walls based on a historical model, which was created between 830 and 840 by Abbot Walahfried Strabo. His poems on plants are known under the name Hortulus.
In order to be able to visit the oldest inhabited castle in Germany, you have to cover a footpath, as the place is car-free. The path leads through the village, through romantic, at times steep alleys up to the mountain. An interesting museum and a café to refresh yourself are the reward.
In the Swiss part, among other things, the almost completely preserved monastery complex is worth seeing. There, too, visitors can look forward to beautiful gardens, rose gardens and themed paths.
In Bregenz, the capital of the Austrian state of Vorarlberg, great opera productions that are worth seeing and listening to take place on the largest lake stage in the world every year in July and August.
