48 hours in Carlsbad

The sophisticated Bohemian spa town

The sophisticated Bohemian spa town presents itself with a nostalgic charm that reminds us of days long past, when emperors and kings, writers and composers flocked to Carlsbad to find strength and inspiration. The town was founded in the 14th century by Emperor Charles IV, who, according to legend, had it built after discovering the hot springs while on a hunt. Carlsbad has maintained its historical flair to the present day – and yet it has managed to keep its finger on the pulse of the time.
