Baden has always played an important role in the world of politics. For instance, in 1415 the confederates staged a coup and managed to expel the Habsburgs from Baden and large parts of the canton of Aargau. The spa town became a centre for conferences and thereby the unofficial capital of the Old Confederacy. Baden was a hive of activity.
Today Stein Castle and the Tagsatzungssaal (legislative assembly chamber) still bear witness to past glories. Our tour guides will divulge the secrets of the Bern Extrawurst sausage and describe how the delegates of foreign powers enjoyed the spa town’s hospitality and amenities.
