Badenweiler is one of the smallest and most charming spa towns in the Black Forest. It's also the site of the best-preserved Roman baths north of the Alps. Town authorities here are intent on keeping their community spotless, squeaky clean, and steeped in Black Forest myth and legend. Badenweiler is located halfway between Freiburg and Basel, near the Swiss border.
