It shines more than a century on with its chandelier-lit interior, lavish rooms and region-driven cuisine. The Belle Epoque is in a central yet peaceful location right near the Lichtentaler Allee, a stately park unspooling along the banks of the Oosbach River.
Here you'll find the Museum Frieder Burda, a striking geometric edifice bearing Richard Meier's architectural hallmark. It's around a minute walk to Baden-Baden's two thermal baths: Baden-Baden's opulent casino, modelled on the splendour of Versailles, is unmissable, as is Europe's second biggest concert hall, the Festspielhaus.
Baden-Baden airport is a minute drive or bus ride from the main station, where you can catch a bus or taxi to the hotel. Rimmed by well-tended parkland, the listed villa was built for Duke Ferdinand von Lotzbeck back in , when Baden-Baden's art star was rising, and the rich and the royal flocked here to cure their ailments in its mineral-rich thermal waters. Gaze at rooms embellished with ornate tiles, stucco and crystal chandeliers, or waltz up the wrought-iron staircase to rooms and suites decorated in a similarly extravagant style.
It's the little details that notch up the luxury here: Discreet yet attentive, service is fairly formal but never stuffy. The concierge can arrange everything from VIP front-row tickets at Baden-Baden's festival hall to bike hire, babysitting, in-room massages and tee time at nearby golf courses. A nice touch is the afternoon tea included in the room rate, served from 2pm to 5pm in the salon, where an open fire crackles in winter.
It includes fine leaf teas, scones, homemade cakes and patisserie. The garden terrace is a terrific spot to linger over an aperitif in summer. No two rooms are alike but they share some elements in common — all are spacious, high ceilinged, and decorated in luxurious patterned fabrics and with antique furnishings and heavy drapes, as well as the usual modern creature comforts. The attractively tiled bathrooms come with bathtubs or showers and own-brand toiletries. Upgrading to a suite gets you plenty of extra space, a separate lounge area and a more decadent bathroom with a corner whirlpool bathtub.
