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.

  • Really nice area. Nice people and plenty of things to do during high seasson. The good thing is that even though it is a tiuristic area, it is not too crowded. 
  • Maybe all this says. We come for 15 years and every season. Lake Constance offers everything on shooting man feeling really. Vacation with the kids? No problem. The beaches, the great playground on the Mainau, the climbing forest Mainau, voyages are recommended... Hiking? Riding a bike? Everything is possible. Whether on mountains in the Switzerland, in the Bregenz forest, directly on the Lake, on the Reichenau or in the vineyards. Shop? To Constance or Lindau. Culture? The range of the Bregenz Festival to the oldest inhabited Castle, the experience museums (on stilts, SeaWorld...), wine festivals and world heritage sites. Gastronomy - star kitchen up to farm shops. Try simply yourself. Sunshine almost always! And if not, how about a visit to the Zeppelin Museum?...

  • Walking through the village, see its lighthouse, boats, surrounded by hotels and restaurants. It is a very nice and preferred walk. We were a large group, and had no problem seating us at a Lakeside restaurant.
