In Baden, shopping is always a joy. Visitors rave about how naturally friendly the people of Baden are – and how that makes shopping all the more pleasant.
There are several different shopping areas, each with its own character and to suit every budget. Do some shopping in the modern Metroshop and the Langhaus, the Gstühl Center, the traditional Badstrasse, the multifaceted Weite Gasse or the charming Obere and Untere Halde. The weekly market with fresh vegetables, fruit and flowers takes place on Tuesdays (March to November) and every Saturday morning next to the City Tower. And don’t forget the sweet Baden specialities that you can enjoy with a coffee during your shopping tour.
The city centre can be reached by train, bus or car. Over 2000 public parking lots are available close to the pedestrian precinct.
