Baden Museum of History
The Baden Museum of History is located directly on the Limmat River across from Baden’s Old Town. A unique combination of the medieval Landvogteischloss (Bailiff’s Castle) and the prominent museum construction designed by the Stieb architect duo from Basel make up this Museum of History
The museum shows Baden as a place where ideas are exchanged. For many centuries, people have come from around the world to the city on the Limmat River. They discuss, negotiate – and bathe in its waters. The warm waters are alluring, as envoys meet for the “Tagsatzung” (legislative assembly), guests travel for a medicinal spa and pioneers form companies.
The new permanent multimedia exhibition entitled “Geschichte verlinkt” (History connects) offers you a unique way to navigate through the history of the city and the region (opened March 2016). Exhibits link the history and recount the past of this spa and industrial city. Browese through and discover the history of the city that has left its mark on the world.
You can immerse yourself in the past in the medieval Bailiff’s Castle. Meet Mr. and Mrs. Landvogt in the kitchen, the Borsinger hotel family in the Biedermeier parlour, or a trendy couple from the 1930s in the bedroom.
Small children will have fun discovering the castle with Frank the Bat. For older kids, there are interactive stations for them to try out on their own.
The new museum café with its superb coffee and view of the Old Town rounds off a visit to the museum.
