Spanischbrödli ("little Spanish rolls") are wonderfully light creations of flaky pastry.

They were already so popular among wealthier Zurich folk in the 18th century that they sent servants to Baden at night to bring the delicacies back for breakfast. In 1847 transport switched onto Switzerland's first railway, earning it the nickname "Spanischbrödlibahn" (Spanischbrödli-train). In 2007, four bakeries created a new version, with a carrot-hazelnut filling.

The mix of urban flair and traditional charm is what makes Baden so appealing, in my opinion. The cultural scene is diverse and cosmopolitan. On weekdays, the atmosphere at the train station is also very international, as businesspeople arrive from companies all over the world. I love the wonderful vibe at the weekly market on Saturdays, too, when I often bump into friends as I shop.
