The thermal town of Baden Baden has a big surprise in store this week ( Protected content ). Since Beethoven's Ode to Joy is celebrating its 200th birthday this year, they are arranging a flashmob with a full fledged professional orchestra, with singers from Strasbourg and Ludwigshafen... and us: don't know how they are going to pull this idea off, I guess they only way to find out is by going ourselves to Baden Baden!

Plan is to combine the concert with a short hike to the Hohenbaden castle.
Hike is the left segment (from Baden-Baden to the old castle via Sophienruhe) of the long route described on Protected content . Overall, it should take us a couple of hours to go up and be back to Baden Baden. If we have time, we might also visit Brahms house before heading to the 7pm concert.

Tickets for the Beethoven flashmob are free of charge, but be sure to book one on Protected content

Train-wise, let's catch 9:57 Basel Bad 12:27 Baden Baden
