Description

Decorative pictorial bird’s eye view of Baden-Baden shows the city and its surroundings, concentrating on leisure and sport grounds, such as golf and tennis courts, swimming pools, riding grounds and hiking routes. Banners mark tourist attractions, hotels, routes and mountains. Legend in the lower margin names 111 spas, pensions and hotels, and the text on the back describes 45 hiking routs around Baden-Baden.

Baden-Baden was since the 19th century beloved destination for tourism, sports and visiting spas. In 1933 the famous Baden-Baden Casino was reopened, after it was closed in 1872.  

The map was probably printed in or just after 1933, when the square in front of the theatre was renamed into “Adolf Hitler Platz” (no 27 on the map). It also shows the newly reopened Casino. Although the map was printed in politically turbulent times it avoids all the political propaganda and only concentrates on the touristic and sports activities of the city.
