Location: Baden Baden
RSVP/Prepayment in full required no later than October 14th 
Spaces limited to 15 members

Join us for a ladies’ weekend away in beautiful Baden Baden! We will leave Saturday morning via train, have a relaxing day at the baths (or spa – your choice!), and return on Sunday afternoon. Spaces are limited, so reserve your place now!!

ACCOMMODATIONS

Our hotel will be the Hotel Quellenhof Sophia  where we have reserved beds for 15 people – 5 double rooms (€49,50+ 3,80 Kurtaxe per person) and 5 singles (€85 +3,80 Kurtaxe per person).

The hotel is located right in the heart of the spa town of Baden-Baden, between the romantic old town and the cozy Baths District, right on the impressive shopping street, Sophienstrasse.

 

SCHEDULE

The agenda for the weekend is as follows:

  • Leaving from the Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof Saturday morning at 9:32
  • Lunch at a restaurant (TBD)
  • In the afternoon we will spend time at one of the nearby baths/spa described below
  • Dinner at a restaurant (TBD)
  • Breakfast together Sunday morning (included in the hotel price)
  • Return to Stuttgart on a Sunday afternoon train

 

SPA/BATHS VISIT

What makes Baden Baden so special are the Roman-Irish baths at the Friedrichsbad (no swimsuits allowed). From their website: “Roman bathing culture displays its full splendor in combination with Irish hot-air baths. This exclusive bathing treat can be experienced and enjoyed by completing a special circuit of 17 different stations. The changing temperatures and the precious thermal water in the various baths have a regenerative effect on body and soul.“

You can also choose a traditional spa with treatments such as the Caracalla Spa (no swimsuits allowed in the sauna area only). Our hotel is within 50 meters of both places, so we won’t have to go far.

 

TRANSPORTATION/RESERVATIONS

Part of the fun is traveling together on a discounted group train ticket, so you do not need to arrange your own transportation. Once everyone has RSVPed and paid, we will vote on whether to return at 14:30 or 15:30 and buy the group ticket.

To start the reservation process, please RSVP in the pending private Facebook event or use the form below if you are not on Facebook.

After RSVPing and confirming with Sandra that there is space available, you will be asked to prepay €20 for the train ticket + your hotel room fees. In case of last-minute cancellation, you are welcome to find another member to take your place, or your hotel prepayment can be refunded upon request, minus any hotel cancellation fees.

Each guest will be asked to pay for their own food, drinks and spa treatments at the location. The IWCS will be sponsoring the table water at our evening dinner together and a glass of Sekt for each member at lunch on Saturday.

Looking forward to a wonderful weekend together! Hope to see you there!!
