Pump room in Baden-Baden
Discover one of Germany's most beautiful towns
A lovely 400m walk from the Hotel MERKUR through the beautiful Lichtentaler Alle and past the right-hand side of the Kurhaus brings you to the pump room.
Built between 1839 and 1842, the pump room is a magnet for visitors to Baden-Baden.
16 Corinthian columns support the 90m long, open pump room, in which visitors can view the 14 murals. The pictures were created by Jakob Götzenberger, a contemporary of Moritz von Schwind. They represent scenes from local myths and legends and form the destination of many local excursions.
Visitors can taste the natural water in the pump room from the Friedrichsbad springs, which are up to 17000 years old and of whose healing powers the ancient Romans spoke.
Today the Fountain Room in the pump room also houses the tourist information centre.. Here you can get information and tickets, insider tips and ideas for your stay in Baden-Baden.
