The New Year's Program

Celebrate the new year with Roman legionaries!

Almost 2000 years ago, Roman legionnaires found a healing spring in the Southern Black Forest and founded "Aqua Villae", today's Badenweiler. That's why we celebrate New Year's Eve with 'real' Romans. Spoil yourself with exquisite buffets, wellness treatments, gala New Year's Eve celebration with live band, the Christmas market in Colmar, and a unique Roman theme day. At night, we'll send balloons with our wishes for 2022 into the new year's sky.

Your hotel is located serenely in the middle of nature but is still quite central: a perfect combination. It's just 300 meters from the hotel to the hub of the town where you'll find the Cassiopeia thermal bath, the 'Kurpark', Roman bath ruins, castle, 'Luisenstraße', cafés, 'Kurhaus'. But up here, on the 'Blauenstraße' (named after Badenweiler's own mountain, the 1,165-meter-high Hochblauen (High Blue)) it's extremely quiet, because your hotel is in the middle of the former castle grounds.

The Fini-Resort has four and a half stars, beautiful, individual rooms, two restaurants, a bar, and, most importantly, a Vespasian thermal bath. The largest spa area of all hotels in this area, you'll enjoy a 200 square meter indoor pool with thermal water from Roman springs, a unique wellness piazza and a modern sauna area. New highlights are the Finnish outdoor sauna and the healthy Cryosauna with up to -147 degrees Celsius.

On tuesday, we'll transport you to Alsace, only 13 kilometers away. Colmar (the beautiful city, also called Little Venice, with a spectacular old city center) has one of the best Christmas markets of all Europe. Because its open until the 30th of December, we'll take a trip there with you. We'll drive, so you can enjoy a glass or two of Crémant or mulled wine.

Our Roman theme day on wednesday, 30 December, is absolutely unique, because of our Roman visitors: a crazy Swiss club that meets up and lives their hobby. What hobby you might ask? "Living History": in their free time, they live like Romans, almost identically to the way their idols lived 2000 years ago. At multiple booths, they'll show how Romans drew, spun, forged, and made pottery. All in traditional Roman garb. Don't miss the big show, when the centurion lets his legionnaires practice their drills in the middle of the guests. You'll definitely feel transported back in time to Ancient Rome.

The buffet on your last night is also a surprise for us. We don't know what we'll serve, that's up to you to decide as our guest. This is how our special buffet works: when you check in, you can write down your food request, either soup/appetizer, main courses or dessert. Then, we'll put all of the requests in a bowl and draw the food for our buffet. Head Chef Karsten Kleinjung is also present and can veto choices: if you choose smoked kangaroo breast with whole truffles, for example...

On New Year's Eve we like to go all out. During the day you'll relax, towards the evening you'll dress up and then the party will start. With an opulent 5-course-menu in the hotel restaurant. Personally prepared for you by head chef Karsten Kleinung, the highlight of the year, also for the kitchen staff. Afterwards a live band will play for you, drinks are included until 2 am. At midnight, we'll greet the new year with a glass of Champagne and Fini's fireworks.

On New Year's Day you can sleep in, breakfast until noon (with more meat than usual). At 1 p.m. we invite you to join us to a traditional, small New Year's celebration on the hotel roof. There'll be mulled wine or cider, homemade pancakes (the German classic 'Berliner') and a balloon with a card and pen for everyone. Write down your wish for 2022, then we'll count down and release the helium balloons at the same time into the beautiful new year's sky. One or two guests have been known to get a little teary-eyed during this ceremony and when checking out.
