The “Chänzeli” (turrets) have existed for more than a hundred years and were an integral part of Baden's spa treatments during the Belle Epoque. Extended walks known as “terrain cures” were an active complement to spa bathing.

The hike leads up and downhill from the deep Limmat Gorge to the four Chänzelis of Schartenfels, Geissberg, Martinsberg and Stein Castle. There are more than 1,300 steps to climb, but the effort is worthwhile and rewarded with magnificent views. A chance to see the town of Baden and its surroundings from a very different perspective.
