The margraves of Baden
Hermann II lived in Baden-Baden at the beginning of the 12th century and belonged to a noble family that shaped the region for centuries. Previously, the family had primarily exerted their influence in Breisgau and in the central Neckar area near Weilheim unter Teck. Marchio de Baduon named himself Hermann II, taking this name from his castle. Old Hohenbaden Castle became the family seat. Even today, the atmospheric ruins remain a beloved destination.
