In the 19th century, many famous people came here from all over Europe for treatment, including Goethe, Schiller, Beethoven, Chopin and Karl Marx.

This tour is well worth it, but it was only 9.5 hours and would have only been 9 hours if someone hadn’t insisted on a later rendezvous time at the end of the day. The guide was very informative, but had to conduct the tour in both English & French, and it would have been better if it had just been English.
