City by the Lake

Set on the border with Switzerland and on the shores of the lake of the same name, Konstanz represents both a city of leisure and some of the country’s best education. Escaping the destruction of the Second World War due to confusion by the Allies as to whether or not it was actually a part of Switzerland, the city today retains its well-preserved medieval core. Twisting alleyways, ornate churches, and classic old-world houses line the streets, giving it the feeling of a city frozen in time. However, despite its archaic aura, Konstanz is home to one of Germany’s elite universities and, by extension, a center of research and scientific institutions. Thanks to its thriving student population and outdoor attractions, Konstanz deftly combines its scenic surroundings with active nightlife and an energetic urban culture. When using our Germany trip itinerary builder, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.

Where to stay in Konstanz

Altstadt (Old Town) remains the most popular place to stay in Konstanz, offering proximity to the city's best attractions and rooms in comfortable hotels housed in quaint, traditional buildings. The area just near Stadtgarden is particularly popular, as is Konzilstrasse, which runs along the lakeshore and right past the city's central train station. If you want quick access to the ferry terminal, stay on the city's eastern shore, in the suburb of Staad.
