Baden-Baden is in Germany's Black Forest, as in the ham, and is well-known for its casino and healing thermal pools. Although we did enter the casino's foyer, we were neither dressed well enough nor willing to pay the €5 admission fee to enter into the gaming area, so we turned right back around without further investigation. We did, however, enjoy four glorious hours at the Caracalla Therme Baths.
I am absolutely sold on this charming mountain village. To be able to stumble out your front door and, within just a few feet, find yourself up in the hills, at castle ruins, drinking a Hefe and eating a brat? Heaven.
