GOLDEN LION HOTEL RESTAURANT "Goldenen Löwen"
A Little Romance of Bavaria in Baden-Baden
Looking for a romantic holiday vacation hotel at a budget friendly price and a little traditional historic color for a romantic getaway, cozy bargain honeymoon in one of Germany's top resort towns? The Golden Lion Hotel in Baden-Baden is a traditional Bavarian style “Gästehaus Löwenbrau” the restaurant hotels planted throughout southern Germany by the famous Munich based beer brewer. The Hotel Golden Lion (Hotel zum Goldenen Löwen) is conveniently located in the romantic old center of this quaint and colorful historic resort town nestled in the Black Forest area of southwest Germany, a vacation destination for the best of European society since the 19th Century.
Baden-Baden is still a very upscale and exclusive luxury spa resort destination with the therapeutic baths of Friedrichsbad and the roman bath of Caracalla (see Friedrichsbad Baden-Baden) the Grand Casino, the opera and concert hall Festspielhaus, international horse racing track, but to enjoy the pleasures of the wealthy doesn’t require spending all your vacation holiday budget at one of the many fine and expensive resort hotels in grand Baden-Baden (see Black Forest).
Originally built before the turn of the last century with the rising popularity of Baden-Baden as a resort and refurbished in 2003, the hotel portion of the Golden Lowen upstairs from the restaurant has all the modern comforts of a more luxury class property, with apartment style bedroom suites. The restaurant of the Golden Lion is styled of the traditional heavy wood beams, hand-carved cuckoo clock interior of a Black Forest inn. The Bavarian beer garden terrace overlooks on the open central square of Jesuitenplatz (Square of the Jesuits) - so named for its position just below the historic monastery a few steps up the hill. Within an easy walk are all the sights of old Baden-Baden from the Roman Baths to the Casino. The restaurant serves both Bavarian cooking and Black Forest Bädish food styles, but for the non-German traveler the distinction may be a little esoteric, since the menu of a German restaurant is hard enough to interpret.
The same hotel company also operates three other colorful traditional style hotels within a short walk, all central and easy on the budget, the Hotel Latern, one of the oldest historic buildings in Baden-Baden is just across the Jesuit Square, The Hotel Bischoff (a “Hotel Garni” meaning no restaurant) adjacent the Kurhaus and Casino, and the basic Gästehaus Pension Lohr.
Baden-Baden can be reached by train from Stuttgart and Karlsruhe or by car on the A5 and near Strasbourg and the Alsace region of France across the Rhine River. The nearest airport is Basel-Freiberg and is served by EasyJet and Condor Airlines. © Bargain Travel Europe
