Beautiful flora in the public gardens were in bloom. The Cassiopeia Thermal Baths are in the domed building in the background. : Badenweiler, DE

I have a colleague who recently bought an apartment in the Schwarzwald town of Badenweiler. She said we were welcome to use the apartment as a get-away, so we took her up on her offer. Badenweiler is one of those towns Germans go to to "take the waters" and is a destination that, if you go for therapeutic reasons, is covered by the German national health insurance plan. We enjoyed a couple of days of rest and relaxation.

Ruins of the original Roman baths : Badenweiler, DE

While we were there, we took a self-guided tour of the original Roman baths. These date back to 75 CE/AD and are well-preserved. Additional photos of the bath ruins and various buildings and features around the town can be seen here.
