Adventure – architecture – nature – fun – movement – city life: this walk is fun for the whole family.
Get out of the house and into the fresh air! A breath of fresh air can often do the world of good. Of course, we’re usually thinking about the kids when we say this. But let’s be honest: sometimes a walk can also do us parents good. And that’s especially true when everyone’s part of the fun – as even the littlest will be on this stroller-friendly walk.
Start off with a stroll down Baden’s Badstrasse boulevard and carry on to Bahnhofplatz, where you take the elevator down to the Limmatpromenade. Once you arrive, grab the first sticks you find and get ready to fend off any river pirates you might meet. Turn left and head in the direction of the spa quarter. This traffic-free promenade was all but made for racing around and letting off steam. Near the Tränenbrünneli fountain, there’s a pond where you can feed the goldfish, as well as an information board about the fish that live in the Limmat.
Once the goldfish are suitably well fed, head off past the cairns towards the famous Thermalbank foot bath. Take off your shoes and socks and dip your feet in warm thermal water that boasts the highest mineral content in Switzerland. When you’re fully refreshed, continue past the renowned Limmathof hotel and on to the Atrium Hotel Blume for a journey back in time. There’s a wishing fountain at the center of this hotel’s captivating inner courtyard, so grab your coins and MAKE A WISH!
