    This is probably my favorite outdoor European venue. We visited everyday as there was always something going on free. We saw at least three concerts while trying different foods and drinks. This is an outdoor venue but the show goes on even in the rain. There are also tents set up with covered seating and some umbrella tables. Different venders provide a variety of food and drink choices such as wines and beer. We really enjoyed the outdoor space and beautifully lite grounds at night. Every city should have such a space.

    Die Qualität der angebotenen Speisen entsprach leider nicht unseren Erwartungen und wir waren sehr enttäuscht. Schade, denn das Ambiente wäre einladend.

    It’s a complex consisting of a casino, a resort, a restaurant, a venue for conference and concert events, shops and a spa. Its construction started in 1821 under Friedrich Weinbrenner’s design. The eight columns outside at the outer edge of a portico by the entrance have a cylindrical shape and are topped by Corinthian capitals with gilded acanthus leaves, all forming a very attractive ensemble which is also attributable to the mentioned architect as well as the paired-griffins frieze of the grand entrance and the neoclassical interiors. Apart from neoclassical a variety other styles can be observed inside the premises. In that sense, the Florentine Hall style is Italian renaissance. Everything is original in that room from 1855 inasmuch as its decoration suffered no damage during the Second World War. The Salon Pompadour style is rococo and that of the Red Hall is baroque. In the Card Room there is a large photo of Jacques Bénazet, a French entrepreneur who for a long time fostered the gambling casino in Baden-Baden. He was able to give that city all the distinction once only Paris enjoyed and thanks to him the casino of Baden-Baden became the first one in Europe. The visit to all the complex outbuildings at large is highly recommended. The precious decoration of the interior is marvelous as regards specifically the sculptures, paintings, stuccoes, wall ornaments and furniture in general. The chandeliers are really amazing. All in that building was conceived with an excellent taste. Besides, going there in the evening gives one the possibility, among other things, to place a stake on the roulette and so ascertain if the odds of luck are on his side at the same time as one admires the valuable aforesaid decorative elements.

    We used to live near Baden-Baden in the late 70's when the nearby Canadian base was active. After 35 years we decided to go back and visit our old favourite places and one of them was Baden Baden. We almost did not visit as we had heard rumours that the area including Baden Baden had been hard hit due to the large influx of refugees. Not true. We found the town centre was as lovely as ever with extensive pedestrian only areas through the town centre shopping district. Expanded since we were there long ago. As to the Kurhaus, the area was clean and tidy and had one of the prettiest Christmas markets that I have ever seen on it's grounds. There was a few middle eastern lady beggars on the street but you see that everywhere any more. So please do not listen to rumours and exaggerations.

    Историческое казино, не посетить нельзя. Одно из немногих казино мира, куда можно придти, как в музей

    You cannot be overdressed. Jacket and tie a minimum and I felt underdressed. Think James Bond playing roulette. The place is beautiful and is three times as classy as anything in Las Vegas. The Baden Baden symphony orchestra plays here and tickets were hard to get. The Restsurant downstairs is very good. We only had cake and coffee. Expensive but good.

    Wir waren zum berühmten Sonntagsbrunch im Restaurant. Bekamen einen schönen Platz an der Terasse und dachten uns noch das läuft ja perfekt. Es begann damit dass unsere Kellnerin unsere Getränke anscheinend nicht aufnehmen wollte sondern viel zu sehr mit dem Nachbartisch beschäftigt war. Wir holten uns essen und um 12:00 Uhr (der Brunch geht bis 14:00 Uhr) ab es keine Spätzle mehr. Das ist für den Preis echt mal arm. Es ging weiter dass nach einiger Zeit des zweiten mal Essens auswählen unser Platz noch nicht abgeräumt war. Das durften wir selber machen (wie auch die folgende Male). Die Nachspeisen war auch schnell aus und wurden nur mangelhaft nachgefüllt. Von Kuchen fand man leider keine Spur mehr. Für den stolzen Preis von 28,50 Euro pro Person und dem doch sehr gehobenen Ambiente muss ich echt sagen, dass das unterste Schublade ist. Da gehen wir nicht merken zum Brunch hin. Absoluter Reinfall und nicht weiterzuempfehlen.

    It is absolutely a place that changes your image about casinos. This particular casino is a piece of art, containing fabulous architecture, history, art galleries and a museum like atmosphere. Worth a visit.

    For American tourists who have been to casinos in the US, this is an eye opener. This casino is more like a museum-fabulous art work, beautiful décor, quiet.

    Built in the early 19th century, Kurhaus is a combination of spa resort, convention facility and casino. With impressive corinthian columns, this classical structure has a remarkable history in hosting the 11th Oylmpic Congress in 1981 which elected Seoul and Calgary respectively for the 1988 Summer and Winter Olympic as well as a Nato Summit in 2009. Its casino has it glorious days and I believe it still is Kurhaus's major attraction as of this date. I had taken a tour of it and was really impressed by it opulent decor. While you are there, do not forget to take a look at the Trinkhalle arcade close by as well (pumphouse for the complex but an architectural art piece by itself). On the day of our visit, a crew was dismantling a sizeable temporary structure right in front of Kurhaus and I suppose this open space must have been used for performance and entertainment for the locals.

    A prominent historic building nestled in a beautiful park currently blooming with tulips and close from the heart of the city. Fantastic place to relax, have a coffee, walk or gamble in the famous casino.

    This place is well worth a visit to fully appreciate the age of Baden Baden. Step back in time to an age well europe's high rollers would spin the wheel and let Lady Luck smile on them or not.

    I advise anybody to experiment at least once (the prices are outrageously expansive) an opera show in this place, great ambiance and good acoustic, the inside is less spectacular but it´s worth the view.

    Nice place to sit down in a café outside. Have a cake and a coffee. We were listening to some singing and watching some dancing. Very entertaining.
