“Great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

The ruins of the Burg Baden sitting on top of a bare rock is a landmark of Badenweiler, a beacon you can see from afar, and it looks like something out of Grimms' Fairytales. The external walls are well preserved and you can explore inside on the ground floor, but there's not too much to see actually. nevertheless it's worth the five-minute walk up a maintained trail from the city park, since the view from the platform outside the castle rujins is spectacular. On a bright day you can see across the Rhine Valley and as far as the Vosges Mountains across the Rhine River in France, a view framed by the wooden hillsides and vineyards of the Black Forest Mountains between which the small valley Badenweiler sits in is nestled. A special occasion is the big party always celebrated at the ruins on 'Walpurgis Night' from April 30th to May 1st - a traditional spring festival observed in Central and Northern Europe - the night when the witches are out to party and dance.
