We wandered through here because it was next to the Christmas Market. There's not much to it. The architecture is beautiful and the paintings are very interesting. You can find out the history of the building from the plaques. We didn't visit the cafe or bar and didn't even realize there was an information booth here. Of course, we just... More

This building, built 1839 and 1842, is nice from the outside. The outside gallery is "cute" with its decoration and paintings, but there really is not much to visit after you have gone down the gallery (in a few minutes). Inside, there is the Tourist information and a café. There were no signs of the "famous" water we could sample.

The building is very attractive, but the fountain wasn't working so I couldn't try the water. The building houses the Tourist Information office and although friendly the staff were not particularly helpful and didn't seem too enthusiastic about recommending things to do in the town.

The building itself is an attraction! In addition you can find answers to most of your questions reg tourism not only in Baden - Baden, but anywhere in blackforest region. Thankfully it was not very crowded, so Barbara could attend to us with a lot of patience. She was quite knowledgeable and helped with a great deal of info and... More

This must be the grandest Tourist Information Centre in Europe situated in the old Pump Room with its elegant columns. The lady there spoke perfect English and provided us with a map and information about concerts being held on the following days which were free.

I didn't spend much time there. Just has a look at the paintings and the leader told us something about its importance, but was not that important. Paintings and the kitschy things are nice.

the building is beautiful and historic but there's not much attraction in seeing the building if there's no water to drink. Apparently, due to a new EU health regulation, either the Pump Room has to declare itself as a medical service or stop serving the water, so they're no longer serving water.
