A short break with art

In Baden-Baden, it is worth dedicating a complete day to the subject of art Of course, there are also smaller exhibitions again and again, for example by the galleries or by the art associations of Baden-Baden. A certainly worthwhile tour guides you through all of Baden- Baden and to quite different exhibitions. Perhaps you take two days for this, then the enthusiasm for art can be combined with the nature experience. Our young couple guests, Emilia and Moritz, show what can be made of a day with art: 08:30: We look directly into the park from the room and listen to the birds chirping with the window open. A breakfast table is already waiting for us below on the park terrace, and getting up is easy because we have some plans for today. We treat ourselves to a long, relaxed breakfast with fresh fruit, Bircher muesli, rolls and eggs, and of course a lot of tasty coffee. More is not possible, otherwise we would never get away ... 10:00: We start first directly with the Frieder Burda museum. We were already here for the Nolde exhibition when the raised flower beds around the museum were kept in the colours of the pictures and for JR who had involved the whole of Baden-Baden in his street art photo project. Our photo from the photo booth that was positioned on the ground floor is still hanging at home. This time, we are curious about the Heinz Mack, Light and Shadows exhibition. It is always worth a visit for the architecture of the museum alone. The Light and Shadows exhibition is fascinating in a very special way; in this respect, it fits perfectly with the building. And yes, Moritz accompanies me into the museum shop. At least this time ;-) When we are finished with our audio guidance that is by the way really worth recommending, otherwise you miss a lot of things, the sun is already directly above the Lichtentaler Allee. The weather is simply magnificent and we enjoy lunch first in the Rive Gauche before we go to the Staatliche Kunsthalle (national art gallery). You must visit the exhibition yourself; it is too much to describe here. It was an impressive experience for us. 12.00: We manage to get a table outside on the sun terrace. The restaurant belongs to the Kulturhaus LA8 building complex. A city art lover has purchased the townhouse and opened it to the public – hats off! The small technology museum and a chess club are in the courtyard, Frank Elstner has his office here and the Rive Gauche restaurant also has, in addition to "our" terrace, a cosy restaurant inside as well as two pompous event rooms, the hall of mirrors and the Kristallsaal (Crystal Room). You can openly look around; it is really worthwhile for the architecture! However, we were then really hungry and were really surprised and impressed by the Lebanese cuisine! Then quickly an ice cream cornet at the ice cream parlour [...]
