€ 1,80 – Baden bei Wien, Austria
Baden bei Wien is just 30 kilometers from Vienna, the historic seat of one of the world’s greatest imperial dynasties – the Habsburgs. Baden was one of their favorite summer resorts, known as a spa of emperors and a magnet for high-level politics. The town combines the classicist architecture of the beginning of the nineteenth century with the architecture and infrastructures of the turn of the twentieth century, when Baden became a world class spa resort. The spa district is centered on the spa garden that is host to the Kurhaus, Trinkhalle, Sommerarena, and music pavilion. The therapeutic and recreational spa landscape extends into a scenic terrain of hills and a valley that contain a distinguished belt of villas and parks. Musical heritage of outstanding universal significance is linked to one of the favorite workplaces of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven and Johann Strauss.
