One of the oldest hotels in Baden-Baden, the Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa is celebrating its 150th anniversary. Many surprises are in store for guests.

Baden-Baden was, for the Russian aristocracy in the 19th century, almost the principal European spa resort. Here, celebrity writers like Gogol and Tolstoy, Dostoevsky and Turgenev, Goncharov and Chekhov came to stay, as did representatives of the imperial house and the nobility. Walking through the streets of this German paradise town, and then you meet the plaques mentioning the important figures of Russian history and culture. Visiting Baden-Baden with a stop at the Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa, which for a century and a half has become one of the town’s main landmarks, is an immersion in the historical atmosphere of this quaint, tradition-rich resort. It was this hotel that took the concept of hospitality in Baden-Baden to a new level, and continues to raise the bar constantly, surprising even the most discerning guests with new offerings.

If you’d like to take a little trip this fall, check out the Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa’s 150th anniversary special. The three-night package for two in the spacious Corner Suite with views of the park and the famous Lichtenthal Alley also includes an action-packed programme – a guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, a country stroll with a rustic lunch, a carriage ride with a picnic stop by the Brenners chefs and an evening in the Baden-Baden Casino for those wishing to try their luck.
