Baden is a pleasant town set among wooded hills on the Limmat River, 15 mi/24 km northwest of Zurich, and famous for its thermal sulfur springs—they are richer in minerals than any other thermal spring in Switzerland.
Apart from the enticing spa facilities and a casino, Baden also has an impressive art museum, Villa Langmatt. Once a private residence, the villa now houses an incredible collection of paintings by French impressionists and other late-19th-century painters (including Cezanne, Gauguin, Renoir, Pissarro and Degas), as well as a roomful of 18th-century Venetian cityscapes.
Enjoy a beautiful view from the Hochbrucke bridge over the old town. Unless you plan to indulge in a multiday spa stay, you can easily visit Baden as a day trip from Zurich.
