The small town of Baden is today both an industrial-urban settlement within the wider conurbation of Zurich with modern, city foci, but also a tranquil thermal spa resort and cultural centre - a town of contrasts.
An architectural masterpiece that is unique in Europe: 40 eye-catching wooden pavilions, partly standing on piles in the lake. This modern 5-star hotel exploits the symbiosis of water and land: each room has its own terrace and some even offer direct access to the lake. Brightly-lit conference rooms. La Table de Palafitte restaurant (with 13 Gault Millau points) was opened in spring 2014 after a complete renovation. Fantastic location right on the shore.
Drinking a cup of coffee in a leisurely fashion, admiring the old facades and beautiful fountains, listening to two local languages or gazing from the 74-meter spire of the Cathedral far into the countryside - this is an experience enjoyed in Fribourg (Freiburg).
