In addition to its 2,000-year spa tradition, Baden has a long history as a conference and congress venue: as early as Roman times, people met in Aquae Helveticae to bathe.
In the Middle Ages, the spa town became the venue for congresses and thus the secret capital of the Swiss Confederation. With the European Peace Congress in 1714, Baden gained great international importance when the city served as a meeting place for months for envoys from all over Europe. Today, in the heart of Switzerland's largest economic centre, Baden is still a popular meeting place and conference venue with well over 100,000 conference guests every year. Whether it's a large event or a workshop, Baden offers everything you need for a successful event.
