Casino fans have more than 50 casinos to choose form in Germany, spread all around the country. Most large German cities have at least one casino. However, most German casinos are located in resorts and spa towns, indicated by the word “Bad” (bath, spa) at the beginning of their names, such as the famous Casino Bad Ems, dating back to 1720, or the casino located on shore of the famous lake at Bad Wiessee.

German casinos vary significantly in their look and feel. Some are modern steel & glass, and some are classic palace structures. However, most German casinos offer the classic casino table games, including Roulette, Blackjack Punto Banco / Baccarat and Slots. Also, most German casinos are strictly gambling establishment and don’t offer much in terms of an entertainment program.
While German gambling laws vary across the 16 German states (Bundesland), there are also many similarities. In most German casinos patrons must be at least 18 and present a valid photo ID to enter. Also, all German casinos are non-smoking by law (interestingly, the Germans came up with some interesting smoking solutions, such as phone-booth-like smoking stalls, located right by the game tables). Dress code and opening hours vary, however, in most cases table games open only after noon, while slots may be available earlier. Here you can find complete information on all casinos in Germany.
