Water reservoir meets look-out tower!

On the Baldegg, 568 m.a.s.l. above Baden in the middle of magnificent forests, you can find the water tower of Baden. A spiral staircase with 172 steps leads up to the viewing platform which offers a 360-degree panoramic view across the Mittelland region to the Black Forest and from Mt. Säntis to the Jungfrau in the Bernese Oberland.

The old water tower of Baden, which today is located directly next to the restaurant Baldegg, was built in 1905 with a height of 12 meters. In 1985 it was replaced by a new 34.5-meter tower, very close to the restaurant Baldegg. It is supported by four pillars, approximately 18 meters high, followed above by the slide chamber, the service water chamber and the chamber with firefighting water. In 2004 the height of the tower was increased by another 4 meters. An information panel shows the location and names of nearby villages and hills as well as the foothills and the Alps.

After enjoying the view, those who want to take a walk will find many walking paths and resting spots in the varied local recreation area. Making it ideal to relax for a few hours in the countryside.

For those who prefer sunbathing to walking, the terrace of the Baldegg Restaurant makes a lovely place to sit and bask. Right next door, there is a large playground where the children can play.

Things are even more laid-back in the Liegehalle Restaurant: Here, people in need of rest can recharge undisturbed and enjoy a bite to eat.
