Looking for an inspiration for a day trip to a cute place near Vienna? Then Baden near Vienna might just be the right choice.
This charming little town, once an imperial summer residence, is above all well known as Baden spa and water springs with curative properties. This time we didn’t visit the spa, but took a nice walk exploring the streets and other sights of Baden. What we loved the most about this place was – the people! It was such a pleasant surprise to experience friendly and communicative shop owners and be greeted with a smile by so many people we encountered. This is something unfortunately not very common practice in Vienna, where being grumpy is kind of normal thing. So whenever we become eager for warmness in the future, there is Baden only 26km away from Vienna, to welcome us. 🙂
Apart from the people, Baden has very nice architecture, abundance of adorable stores, good food and many nice places to visit. One of them, which we due to cold weather missed this time, is Rosarium – the largest rose garden in Austria. They bloom twice a year – in June and October, so next time we visit Baden will definitely be June, at the latest. Because as there are many beautiful parks there, we can already imagine how nice it looks like in blooming spring.
Hope you will enjoy our post and if you have some Baden tips, please share them with us! 🙂
