LONG AGO BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
In the second half of the first century the Romans under Emperor Vespasian occupied the south-west corner of Germany. They discovered thermal water in Badenweiler whose Roman name is unfortunately not known. In several stages they built an impressive spa building and a platform temple. Little by little a small town with complete infrastructure developed.
In 259 AD, the Teutons conquered the region. The Roman buildings decayed into ruins and became a cheap source of stone when people wanted to build. Even the Margrave of Baden had stones quarried there for the reconstruction of his town hall. Fortunately, because on this occasion the remains of the Roman thermal baths were discovered.
