In the Ancient Ages Romans discovered a strange natural phenomenon in the north of their empire. Hot water spouted from under the ground. It was a real miracle. But the more important miracle was that this water could treat various illnesses and improve health. The emperor Caracalla ordered to build bathhouses for him and his family near the thermal springs with healing power. After a while a small town grew up around the bathhouses. It got the name "City of Sparkling Water".
In the Middle Ages superstitious Germans considered these springs to be the devil incarnates and never approached them.
But time passed and the healing power of thermal water was discovered and proved again. Since then Baden-Baden became the world-famous spa resort.
