As the oldest casino in Europe, the Casino Baden-Baden is not just a gambling venue but a historical site as well. The casino was first opened in the early 1800’s as a spa and gambling location only for the rich with a strict dress code.
The casino invites visitors for a tour around the oldest casino floor in the whole of Europe. Mornings are dedicated to such tours and the tables are calm like elegant relics of a time past. In the afternoon when the floor is finally open for gaming, the casino quickly fills to capacity with avid gambling fans looking for classical casino gaming. The dress code here requires the men to turn up in a jacket and tie. Those without a jacket can get one from the casino at a fee. It’s a spectacular setting and you’re expected to make an effort.
In an effort to preserve the sophisticated nature of the casino, classical board games are separated from slot machines. You will not need a jacket to play the slot machines but smart casual attire is encouraged. A visit to Baden-Baden in Germany is an unforgettable experience. It’s a place that incorporates both class and architectural beauty into a memorable casino experience.
