Discover the best restaurants Baden Baden - the historic German city famed for its incredible architecture and winter sports 

The spa town of Baden Baden in south-west Germany, sits in the foothills of the Black Forest mountains and has been made a Unesco World Heritage site for its spas and the 18th and 19th-century architecture that grew up around them.

 People have been coming to experience the mineral waters and fresh mountain air for centuries. The area offers hiking and horse-racing in summer, morphing into a ski area in winter.  

The total population is just 56,000, but the town packs a punch in terms of attractions.  Apart from the famous thermal baths, the town boasts Germany's largest opera house and concert hall, magnificent parks and gardens, the world-famous casino and the stunning historic Kurhaus, where you can shop in its colonnades, dine in its restaurants or watch concerts in the grounds. And visitors in December will find one of the most beautiful and traditional Christmas markets in Germany. 

Of course in such a beautiful town there are lots of dining options and the MCC team has put together a list of some of the nicest.
