Why go to Karlsruhe Baden Baden?
The picturesque town in the foothills of the Black Forest is a favourite of the mega rich and sporting elite and it is easy to see why. With an elegant social playground of decadent casinos, thermal spas and a pretty racecourse, the town harks back to a more refined era. Centuries ago visitors were attracted by the chance to recuperate in the spas or flirt with the roulette wheel and these days are no different. During the 2006 football world cup it was the wives and girlfriends of England’s players who came here to shop and be entertained and monarchs from around the world have stolen a few moments exploring the lush town.
