One of the most famous novels of 19th century European literature, The player by Russian writer Fedor Dostoevskij is set right here, in Baden-Baden, which in the second half of the 19th century was one of the favorite destinations of the rich and powerful of the Old Continent. But also intellectuals like Lev Tolstoy, Friedrich Nietzsche and Richard Wagner frequented the small spa town and made it famous. Its thermal waters, already known and exploited by the Romans who called the city Aquae Aurelie, and above all the casino still represent today the destinations of a tourism stimulated also by the rich cultural offer of the city.
Even those who do not like casinos will appreciate the Baden-Baden casino, which opened in 1838, which the famous singer Marlene Dietrich called the most beautiful casino in the world. Here there are no noisy Las Vegas slot machines, you only play on the green table and the noble atmosphere creates a belle epoque atmosphere.
Baden-Baden is a very elegant city, full of parks and gardens that invite the visitor to pleasant strolls. The city is also known for its rich calendar of concerts, exhibitions, congresses and cultural events of all kinds.
Stuttgart is a city of about 600,000 inhabitants, well served by the subway and trains: for this reason 2 days, excluding flights, are enough to visit it calmly, experiencing it in all its authenticity. Surrounded by enchanting vineyards, this still little-known destination lends itself perfectly to a weekend.
There is no shortage of museums in Stuttgart and there are really very different realities, perfect to satisfy the tastes of any visitor. Among the most famous stops are the Mercedes Benz Museum, which pays homage to one of the most appreciated car manufacturers in the world, the Porsche Museum which is the official museum inaugurated in 2009 by the Porsche car manufacturer and the Ritter Museum which is dedicated to the famous company of chocolate. However, as art maniacs as we are, we have focused on two very interesting realities: here’s what to see in Stuttgart if you want to visit two beautiful art museums.
Strasbourg is renowned for being the main city and the capital of Alsace, a characteristic area of the French territory to which we dedicated a week-long road trip a few summers ago.
This delightful town is great for getting around comfortably to discover its surroundings, without having to constantly change accommodation during construction. Visiting Strasbourg in two days is the ideal time to be able to appreciate it to the fullest, entering some of its main attractions but also strolling aimlessly through its charming alleys.For the tour of the places to visit we could only start from the Notre-Dame Cathedral, the undisputed symbol of the historic center.
This monumental construction is one of the most important buildings of the French Middle Ages, and its spire, finished in 1439 at 142 meters, was the highest in the entire West until the 19th century. Admission to the Cathedral is free and free (but be careful because Sunday mornings are reserved for religious services).
