Europe’s first grand hotel
Escape the daily grind and enjoy a stay in historic surroundings. Found in 1631, the former Capuchin monastery has a history stretching back almost 400 years. During its days as a monastery, the capuchins would use the building’s own thermal waters – and you can still enjoy their healing effect today in the hotel’s indoor and outdoor pools. In the 19th century, the architect Friedrich Weinbrenner converted the monastery on behalf of Johann Friedrich Cotta into the Badischer Hof luxury hotel, the first grand hotel in Europe. In 1980, the hotel was expanded to include 75 additional rooms; this modern part of the hotel blends perfectly with the historic monastery. In 2009, the GCH Hotel Group bought the grand hotel in Baden-Baden and added another 19 rooms.
The luxury hotel then underwent extensive renovations in 2016: the 147 rooms all received new furniture and were fitted with state-of-the-art technology. The public areas, such as the foyer, restaurant and impressive Klosterhalle, also underwent a makeover and now exude a fresh, new feel. The Radisson Blu Badischer Hof Hotel is one of the most elegant hotels in Baden-Baden, offering guests the perfect blend of historic charm and modern design.
Relaxation in the hotel’s own thermal pool and a range of massage treatments
You don’t have to visit one of the town’s thermal spas to bathe like an ancient Roman: the Radisson Blu Badischer Hof Hotel is the only hotel in Baden-Baden to have its own thermal water source. Enjoy the healing powers of the thermal water and give your circulation a boost with sauna sessions in the hotel’s 800-square-metre spa area.
You can also unwind with one of the selected massage and medicinal treatments available in the spa. Whether you opt for one of the specially developed anti-stress treatments, a migraine massage or traditional hot stone massage, a skilled team will always tend your very individual needs. To make sure you make the most of your time in Baden-Baden and have a chance to recharge, the hotel offers a number of wellness packages: treat yourself to the Wellness Timeout day package, boost your endorphins with Sweet Temptation, or recharge your batteries with the Energetic & Fit package.
With three different dining areas, the Radisson Blu Badischer Hof Hotel offers guests an array of delicious dishes and local wines. The hotel serves first-class dishes and drinks in the luxurious atmosphere of the Parkrestaurant, the historic Klosterhalle, and the Jockey Bar.
Guests looking for an exciting way to spend the evening following their day of relaxation and first-class cuisine are sure to find the ideal event at the Radisson Blu Badischer Hof Hotel: at one of the hotel’s popular murder mystery dinners, you can track down a criminal and enjoy a top-class four-course meal while a mysterious murder plays out around you.
Restaurant at the luxury hotel
Newly renovated in 2016, the Parkrestaurant serves regional dishes using seasonal products from the Baden region, as well as light meals with a Mediterranean flair. In the morning, you can savour a superb breakfast with a healthy smoothie, freshly baked cake, or smoked salmon. And you can start the day with a real highlight by taking in the views over the idyllic hotel park.
The bar has always been a popular meeting spot and used to be a place for jockeys to relax and unwind after one of the town’s traditional horse races. Today, the hotel serves exquisite local wines, cocktails, and small snacks, making it the ideal place to meet after a day of relaxation or excursion in the surrounding region. Ring out the day with a glass of local Baden wine or a glass of champagne in the 1920s-style Jockey Bar.
Exklusive high tea
In the exclusive atmosphere of the historic Klosterhalle, the hotel serves a traditional British-inspired high tea every day from 5 pm. Choose from one of the 30 tea varieties from the UK, Japan, Taiwan and China and savour the delectable homemade cakes and sandwiches.
