|Baden : arrival, orientation and information|
Home > Tourist Guide > Table of contents > Zurich > Baden and around > Arrival
The town is divided into two, with the station in the middle. South (right) of the station is the centre, focused around the Old Town with the ruined Stein castle above. North (left) of the station, in a bend of the Limmat, is the low-lying Kurgebiet, or Cure District, with the thermal baths and a handful of venerable old hotels clustered around Kurplatz. The main Badstrasse, which becomes Bäderstrasse, connects the two neighbourhoods, running along a terrace above the Limmat valley.
Baden’s friendly and helpful tourist office is 100m north of the station, at Bahnhofstrasse 50 (Mon–Fri 8.30am–noon & 2–6pm, Sat 10am–noon; 056/222 53 18, www.baden-schweiz.ch). They offer excellent free guided tours of the town (Mon 2pm).
