I keep going back. There is so much to offer in spring, summer, and fall. Last time I stayed in Lichentaller and enjoyed the walk into Baden-Baden. The public transport works well, and there are lots of very Black Forest towns nearby to explore. I want to visit the baths in the snow!
I'm going back to Baden-Baden for another trip -- my fourth, I think. Explore the Old Roman Baths (ruins) before heading into a modern spa. Altes Schloss has a great restaurant and a B&B but I haven't stayed there.
The Thermal Baths here are amazingly relaxing and a must-see. The town itself is very laid back and picturesque with more than its fair share of gardens and fountains. The Altes Schloss was also well worth the hike to explore unsupervised. I highly recommend a couple days here in the middle of a longer backpacking trip to relax. Don't worry, it's not too touristy.

I've been there twice, mainly for the reason of enjoying the famous, wonderful Spa. There are two Spa resorts to pamper yourself. The price is reasonable, and you will learn the magic power of mineral water there. If you like this place, there is another version in Cologne.
Baden-Baden is fun to explore especially with all of the staired ally ways that lead into seemingly secret courtyards with foutains. Bring a good pair of shoes because the town is very hilly.
Baden-Baden is a small German town tucked into the foothills of the Black Forest. Even though it is small in terms of size and population, it has gained great fame throughout Germany and even worldwide for its marvelous opera house.
Baden-Baden hostels are centrally located because the city is rather small. Public transportation is available but might not be as comprehensive as it would be in a larger place. The closest airport is located in Karlsruhe, but you should look into taking a train since there are not many scheduled flights into Karlsruhe.
There are many good reasons to come stay in Baden-Baden hostels, the most obvious being the famous Festspielhaus (opera house). It has its reputation for showing cutting-edge productions of Wagner’s Ring of the Nibelung but also holds performances of other operas, ballets and classic concerts throughout the year. Make sure to get your show tickets well in advance since shows sell out quickly.
Baden-Baden hostels are also close to a spa garden and a casino for your entertainment. Art enthusiasts come for the Sammlung Frieder Burda, one of Germany’s most extensive collections of modern art which is really worth a visit. Other attractions include two castles which are open to the public, the ruins of a Roman bath, and the Paradies which is an Italian Renaissance garden that will fascinate you with its beautiful landscape and many trick fountains.
