Lichtentaler Allee in Baden-Baden

Discover one of Germany's most beautiful towns

Lichtentaler Allee

Only 150m away from the Hotel MERKUR you will find a unique natural landmark, the Lichtentaler Allee.

Citizens and visitors have always been fascinated by the atmospheric density of the trees, the unusual structure of the Allee, its variety and features, the River Oos that runs through it, the formation of the park over the course of the centuries and the significance of the Allee as a cultural and social space.

Lichtentaler Allee in Baden-Baden is known worldwide as the "street of trees". This park is unique in Germany. Strolling visitors are enthusiastic and declare that they have never seen anything like it, together with the town, unscathed by the war.

Lichtentaler Allee

According to legend the Lichtentaler Allee was laid out in 1655 and planted with oak trees. In the 19th century the Allee became an elegant promenade for strolling. When the French casino owner Jacques Bénazet took over the casino in 1838 he used a large portion of the profits to develop the spa resort further and initiated the conversion of the Allee to an English country park.

Ivan Turgenev wrote to Gustave Flaubert in 1865: "You should come to Baden! There are the loveliest trees that I have ever seen... it does the eyes and the soul good". As a cultural monument the Lichtentaler Allee is specially protected today and fascinates visitors from around the world throughout the year.
