The Baden-Baden casino is the most famous and, in my opinion, the most beautiful casino in Germany. The casino is housed in the Kurhaus in the centre of the city of Baden-Baden. The luxuriously furnished, historic rooms of the Baden-Baden casino are among the most elegant interiors I have ever seen. It reminds me strongly of the very grand days of Paris in the 19th century. You can take an interesting guided tour of the Casino Baden-Baden in the morning or visit the casino from 2 p.m. onwards, when the casino is in operation.
The casino in the Kurhaus has existed since the completion of the Kurhaus in 1824. The architect was Friedrich Weinbrenner, who also designed large parts of Karlsruhe’s city centre. Between 1872 and 1933, the casino in Baden-Baden was closed; all casinos were banned in the German Reich at that time. After the Second World War, the Baden-Baden casino experienced another great period, many world stars played here. A few years ago, NATO heads of state including Barack Obama dined at the Baden-Baden casino.
