    The best medicine is a mix of rest

    and exercise. Just take a break from

    everyday life - away from the daily

    and career stress and exercise in a

    healthy manner. Go for a stroll, do

    some power walking, jog or go inline

    skating under the imposing trees of

    the famous Lichtentaler Allee, there

    is space for every kind of exercise.

    Or one can just enjoy the sweet

    idleness with all senses among the

    300 different types of roses in the


    Each tour leads you from the city directlyto the countryside as far as you want

    to the next caf or high up in the Black Forest.

    Wellness and relaxation for body, mindand soul. Baden-Baden.

    Dolce far niente:Sweet idleness in all corners.

    For all those wanting to recharge

    their batteries Baden-Baden with Ger-

    manys largest municipal forest pro-

    vides the perfect terrain. Panoramic

    footpaths, nature trails and specially

    designated Nordic walking routes

    will test your stamina and lead you

    over rolling, green hills, up rocky

    peaks and through shady forests. For

    less strenuous walks a number of

    short forest trails have also been laid

    out. The picturesque Rebland vine-

    yard region, with its blend of won-

    derful scenery and sun-blessed

    vineyards, attracts outdoor fans of all

    ages and is only a stones throw away.

    All that is left for you to decide is the

    amount of outdoor activity and the

    pace. For some a stroll to the nearby

    Cistercian Abbey or a ride with the

    funicular railway to the summit of the

    Merkur suits their exercise needs.

    Others require more of a sporting

    challenge: horse riding or climbing on

    the nearby Battert rock.

    instance, the historical pump room,

    the beautiful Kurhaus, the neo-

    City Museum as well as the over 760

    No more bets became No more

    to bet for Dostojevski. The famous

    writer and notorious gambler did not

    have the greatest of luck at Ger-

    manys oldest and the worlds most

    beautiful casino; unfortunately he

    had little time to admire its magnifi-

    cent neo-baroque interior. Whether

    roulette, concerts, midnight dinners

    or lavish balls, the Kurhaus is the

    hub of Baden-Badens social scene.
