BRENNER’S PARK-HOTEL & SPA

Built in 1872, and refurbished 1999, this distinguished five-star hotel offers a full range of exquisite services, in at atmosphere of unsurpassed charm. For more than 125 years, Brenner’s-Park has been the focal point of the sparkling life of Baden-Baden, welcoming an international clientele to its spacious, private gardens beside the river Oos, and providing commanding views over one of the most beautiful tree-lined avenues in the world -  Lichtentaler Alle.

With its 100 guestrooms and suites, and 200 staff whose job it is to see to the well-being of the guests, the hotel represents the highest standards in luxury and amenities. Rated by Conde Nast Traveller as Germany’s finest hotel, you’ll find gracious, individually designed rooms; many furnished with valuable antiques, and all with ensuites that include marble baths. Dining is superb, and covers a range of international and regional specialties. A gourmet diet is also part of the Brenner’s-Park program - proof that health-conscious cuisine can also be a culinary delight.

As one of the foremost spa cities in Europe, it’s little wonder that the Brenner’s-Park Spa, which opened in 1999, is one of the region’s major draws. Health, beauty and well-being are spa’s primary focus, which is reflected by its wide range of services, fitness, sports and lifestyle activities. In addition to the fitness centre, outdoor and indoor pool, you can enjoy the tranquil oasis of the Saunarium, a unique complex that includes a steam room, aroma bath, relaxarium, biosauna, Finnish sauna, whirlpools and a lounge. Or you can relax in the radiating warmth of the Laconicum which combines various purifying body packs and care rituals for Him and Her. Other therapies include traditional and aroma-oil massages, a Japanese Shiatsu, an Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi or an Asian Lulur treatment as well as color-light therapy and more.  For the ultimate escape, however, why not try the Asian-styled Spa Suite? Completely self-contained, it guarantees absolute privacy, and comes with its own Japanese Blossom Steam Bath, infused jasmine and orchid blossom, and your very own Spa Butler.

A visit to Brenner’s-Park wouldn’t be complete without a tour of Baden-Baden itself. A picturesque and historic city, it’s an easy 10-minute walk to downtown and the main shopping area.  Be sure to visit the spa quarter with its Roman-Irish Bath and the Caracalla Bath, and enjoy its world-famous casino, the Friedrichsplatz Theater, and new Festspielhaus festival hall. Then there is the surrounding Black Forest, an enchanting land where old traditions remain intact. Meander along forest roads, through villages where master craftsmen carve the Black Forest cuckoo clocks, and lunch at a typical Black Forest Inn.  Like Brenners-Park Hotel itself, there’s a mystical grandeur about this timeless part of the world, and it slows your being to simpler, more elegant times.
