Germany has a wide casino fan base. They all tried National Casino. But still there is more to try. Among them are some gems that can look back on a long history, offer a particularly atmospheric interior, shine with extraordinary architecture or are otherwise remarkable. In my opinion, the following three casinos should be visited by every passionate gambler.

Casino Baden-Baden

The casino in Baden-Baden is a household name for most Germans, even if you are not interested in casino games. In addition to its long history, this casino stands out from the crowd of casinos mainly because of its incredibly great interior. Baden-Baden is therefore also one of the most distinguished casinos in Germany, where an upscale dress code is mandatory for the big game. You can find all the good references about this location the online.

Casino Dortmund Hohensyburg

Close to Dortmund is Hohensyburg, which is probably Germany’s largest and most modern casino. In contrast to Baden-Baden, the architecture and interior design is kept modern and relies on a lot of glass and metal. On more than 8000m² you can find numerous slot machines as well as roulette and blackjack tables and also a large poker area. More details about the casino games as well as the current poker tournament schedule can be found in the review of Spielbank Hohensyburg.

In contrast to the ruined castle of Hohensyburg in the immediate vicinity, the casino in Dortmund has a very modern design.


The casino Bad Hombug from the outside is just breath-taking. Gambling history was written at this location when Francois Blanc reduced the house advantage in roulette in the mid-19th century.

History was written in the casino Bad Homburg. When Francois Blanc became the world’s first operator to forgo double zero in roulette, Bad Homburg became the Mecca for gamblers from all over Europe. Due to this success, François Blanc later also took over the renowned casino in Monte Carlo. The Bad Homburg casino is rather small, but its history makes a visit to the casino here a very special experience.

Top 10 casinos in Germany

If you are looking for German casinos where you can play slots, blackjack, roulette or poker, below is a small selection of the best land-based casinos in Germany. Generally, you must be at least 18 years old to play at these casinos. Every now and then, you will also have to make sure to follow the dress code.

Major border casinos

German casino players also look beyond the German borders for alternative casinos. Here, however, it is mainly the poker players who are looking for alternatives to the relatively limited game offer of the casinos in Germany. Here two casinos near the border have brought it to a certain fame:

The Kings Casino in Rozvadov in the Czech Republic. It is located just over the Czech border, following the A6 from the direction of Nuremberg and is considered the largest poker room in Europe. Here you can find the most cash game tables and several poker tournaments every day. Of course, there is also roulette and blackjack there, but these classics play a rather minor role here.

If you follow the A40 from Duisburg in the direction of the Netherlands, you will find the Holland Casino in Venlo. This is also a large poker room with many cash games and poker tournaments. Holland Casino is the largest casino chain in the Netherlands and of course also offers lots of slots, roulette and blackjack.

You can find more casinos that you can visit as an alternative to the German casinos in my articles about the German states. If you do not have the opportunity to visit a local casino, we recommend the best online casinos.

The most important casino games in German casinos

The game selection of casinos in Germany is outshined by slot machines. Every casino basically offers a wide range of slot games. Also common is the big game of roulette and blackjack. The majority of casinos have at least one gaming table for these games. Poker is also important and therefore frequently encountered. On the one hand, tables are available for cash games and on the other hand, numerous tournaments are organized.
