The Celts and Romans were already here
There is evidence that the Celts were already in the Baden region. The Romans cultivated wine in the region around Baden. Roman legionaries brought Italian grape varieties here and improved local wines. They were also the first to use the thermal baths in the Vienna Woods. Under Emperor Claudius (41 - 54 AD) they called the place Aquae, which indicates that it was used as a bath. The spa town Baden near Vienna has been used as a bathing resort since Roman times. The spa town of Baden developed from the Roman settlement Aquae.
This is also indicated by the visit of Queen Beatrix of Hungary in 1488. She visited the place to cure her childlessness. Emperor Franz!. eventually declared the city his summer residence. He stayed here every summer between 1796 and 1834. The health resort owes its reputation for 2000 years to the thermal baths on the slopes of the Vienna Woods. The Roman spring also supplies the city's thermal baths with sulphurous water to this day.
Empress Sissi, Beethoven and Mozart in Baden near Vienna
It is said that Empress Sissi liked to walk often and often the 27 kilometers from Vienna to Baden - always accompanied by her court ladies, who were usually not as fit as the Empress. She is said to have always had a glass of milk in Baden after hiking through the region of the Vienna Woods.
We know from Beethoven that he regularly came to Baden near Vienna during his life - partly because he hoped to get relief for his ailments, and partly because there are many beautiful hiking trails in Baden and the surrounding area on which he could relax and retreated from the people he felt disappointed with in the course of his increasing deafness. He could relax in nature. His 9. Symphony, the last and greatest work of his life, was written by Ludwig van Beethoven in a small house in Beethovengasse in Baden.
And Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was also a regular guest in Baden. In 1791 Mozart wrote the "Ave Verum" for his friend Anton Stoll only a few months before his death. In the Stephanskirche his handwritten score hangs on a church wall.
Franz Grillparzer came to Baden regularly, and in today's Kurpark there is a concert pavilion in which Johann Strauss played the spa guests dancing the waltz.
Since the casino opened in 1934, Baden near Vienna has become the most important health resort in Austria. The destruction by a bomb attack in 1945 and the subsequent occupation by Soviet troops could only interrupt this for a few years.

Enjoy the summer in Baden near Vienna
Right next to the spa gardens and the Hotel Herzoghof * There's something refreshing in the Clementine ice cream parlor: a cool lime-mint soda and the seductively sinful Eton Mess, which I couldn't resist: a mixture of fresh strawberries, strawberry sauce, cream, meringue and vanilla ice cream - delicious! You don't treat yourself to anything else, do you? Or is one for you Kaiserschmarrn Recipe rather?
On our way to the city center we pass a water-spewing faun, the cooling water of which we like to use to cool off from the summer heat of the day - the thermometer reaches almost 40 degrees on that day in early July. A welcome opportunity. A few meters further on, a huge plastic soft ice cream invites us to the associated ice cream parlor, which in this case, however, we scorn. Instead, we see more and more white-clad walkers who join us in the summerBathing in white" to celebrate.
