Lake Constance (Bodensee), Baden-Wurttemberg

(4.7/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
The third largest lake in Central Europe, Lake Constance (Bodensee) is on the Rhine and has shores in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Within the lake, however, no borders exist--making the lake a cause for many disputes. You can stay out of the fray, though, and go for a swim, soak up the sun on the shore, or bike or hike along the lake. With many towns along the shores, you'll find plenty of opportunities to explore and enjoy the local cuisines. The lake has 11 islands, some of which you can visit by boat. Make Lake Constance (Bodensee) part of your personalized Lindau itinerary using our Lindau vacation trip planner.
