The Badener Neujahrsblätter are an annual publication and have been coming out since 1925. Their aim is to document the events in the town of Baden and the Baden region. Changing focal themes each year reveal one aspect of the past and current life in the city and its region. The articles are written by authors specializing in the focal themes, either as academics or as journalists.
Two editors are responsible for the publication of the Badener Neujahrsbätter: Firstly, the Literarische Gesellschaft (literary society) Baden, a network for literature in the Baden area. By the name "Baden liest" (Baden reads) the society is passing on literature in several ways to different groups, organizes readings, literature days and a festival for children's literature named "kunterbunt" (jumbled up). Secondly, the Vereinigung für Heimatkunde des Bezirks Baden (society for local geography and history of the Baden district) is passing on relevant information on culture, offers visits and talks and organizes field and study trips.
