The Cultural Trail runs along both sides of the River Limmat between the wooden bridges of Baden and Wettingen–Neuenhof.
It passes through a beautiful and ever-changing river landscape in which idyllic scenery and the marks of civilisation can be found in close proximity. A number of important cultural and industrial monuments can also be seen along the trail. There are more than 20 artworks by renowned Swiss artists to discover along the way.

NatUrwald Garden

Description

In 2005, the Badens Ortsbürgergemeinde (Citizens' Municipality) was awarded the Binding Forest Award for exemplary forest management. The theme that year was "Lebensraum Stadtwald" (The Urban Forest Habitat).
Part of the prize money and additional funding from a sponsor made it possible for the Stadtforstamt (City Forestry Office) and the Baden Stadtökologie (City Ecology) to set up the NatUrwald Garden website. It offers busy, stressed-out city dwellers who are often far removed from nature a chance to learn about and rediscover the outdoors from the comfort of their homes. Over a three-year period, a website updated every month showed how diverse, unique and fascinating Baden's NatUrwald Garden is.

At the end of the project, an attractive brochure with an integrated map was created. This brochure is available in the Stadtbüro (City Office) and in the Baden info office, and can also be ordered. The website still exists.

The appealing destinations described can be visited on short hikes and walks with the help of the map, which can be found on both the website and in the brochure.

We welcome feedback.

The brochure can also be ordered from the Stadtforstamt (City Forestry Office).

Urban Nature Trail

Description

Tatort Natur in der Stadt ("Crime scene: Nature in the City"): This is the name of the brochure published by the NAVO nature and bird preservation society of Baden/Ennetbaden. It invites you to discover nature where you would least expect it, namely in urban areas. Working together with the Stadtökology (City Ecology) and the Stadtforstamt (City Forestry Office) as well as other benefactors, a total of 15 information boards were set up in 9 locations. They provide information about the swifts flying above the roofs of the city centre, the different types of wall vegetation and many water birds in the area of the river, as well as various butterflies on the cliffs and many plant species. Prepare to be amazed and take a journey of discovery through Baden.

Geo Trail

Description

The area around Baden is extremely interesting from a geological perspective. On the one side, you have the rocky cliffs of Stein Castle and the Lägern ridge that form the eastern foothills of the Jura mountains and on the other, the plateau dominated by rolling hills. The River Limmat has slowly created a path through the Lägern mountain over time. Even the Romans made use of the warm healing waters on both sides of the Limmat.
