Popular Points of Interest in and near Badenweiler
Staatliche Baderverwaltung Badenweiler
The Staatliche Baderverwaltung Badenweiler (12 hectares) is a historic arboretum located in the city Kurpark at Kaiserstrasse 5, Badenweiler, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It is open daily without charge.
The arboretum dates to 1758 when Charles Frederick, Grand Duke of Baden, planted a walnut allée along the hill with its Roman ruins, which was subsequently extended in 1824-1828 by Johann Michael Hofrat Zeyher (1770–1843) to create a small landscape garden. The current Kurpark and arboretum, however, are primarily the work of Ernst Kraut Inger (1824–1898), Grand Ducal Park Director from 1850–1897, who collected trees from around the world to create an English landscape park. Many of today's trees date to this period, as do garden features such as swan ponds.
Today the garden contains extensive plantings of exotic trees, including mature sequoias, cedars, palm trees, eucalyptus, bananas, lemons, oleanders, hibiscus, and magnolias, as well as fine specimens of Prunus, Quercus, Rosa, Sorbus and Viburnum species and varietals.

Travel Insider Tips for Badenweiler
Badenweiler lies at the western edge of the Black Forest. It is sheltered by the Blauen, 1164 m (3820 ft), and the climate is excellent. Its parish (Evangelical) church (1897) is built at the foot of an 11th-century castle which belonged to the margraves of Baden and was destroyed by the French during the wars of Louis XV.
Badenweiler is visited by some 5000 people annually. Some come for its warm mineral springs, with temperatures of 21°C (70°F), others for its whey cure, and still others on account of its equable climate and picturesque surroundings. There is a Kurhaus, built in 1853, and a park of 15 acres (61,000 m²) containing a historic arboretum (the Staatliche Baderverwaltung Badenweiler), as well as a grand-ducal castle, refitted in 1887–88. In 1784 well-preserved Roman baths were discovered here.
