Lake Constance (Bodensee), Baden-Wurttemberg

4.7
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. See Lake Constance (Bodensee) and all Lindau has to offer by arranging your trip with our Lindau attractions planner.

  • Lake lying partly in Germany and partly in Austria, partly in Switzerland. The impression as if it were by the sea, behind which emerge the top. Around the Lake (at least in part) runs a bike path.

  • While walking to see the spring Bodenseekreis everywhere is the scenery everything so calm even ducks are so leisurely people in the walk threes whispered talk about breaking the peace of Bodenseekreis

  • Very frequent visitor to the banks of the Lake, it is particularly attractive during the summer. A tour of the old town of Konstanz, the island of Lindau, Seemuseum of Kreuzlingen and the town of Rorschach are absolute musts. Visit the Lake aboard an airship from Friedrichshafen is also great, although very expensive. The visit to the Zeppelin Museum is fantastic everywhere you go around the Lake there are things to do and see. A week would not be enough
