Cycling around Lake Constance, between Switzerland, Austria and Germany



Cycling Lake Constance is an exceptional route to explore. The lake is situated between Germany, Austria and Switzerland and is famous for the picturesque towns and villages that surround it, including Güttingen, Stein Am Rhein and Gottmadingen. Enjoy an original and unique experience on the border between 3 countries on the cycle paths of Lake Constance.

Main areas of interest during the stay:

  •  Meersburg Castle
  •  the rhine falls
  •  Constance and Bregenz
  •  Mainau, famous flower island
  •  Stein am rhein


Day 1: Individual arrival in Constance 

Welcome to Constance, the largest city around the lake.  The Rhine flows from Lake Constance to the North Sea. Just a few minutes' walk from the medieval town center, you can visit the Swiss town of Kreuzlingen and its lively harbor. 


Day 2: Constance - Reichenau Island - Schaffhausen / approx. 45 km and boat trip 

The first stage of your bike tour around Lake Constance takes you to the island of Reichenau and its monastery, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001, which had a considerable influence in the 10th century.

You'll then take the boat to Gaienhofen and ride along the Höri, the peninsula where Hermann Hesse lived. You then drive to the Swiss town of Stein am Rhein. Here, you temporarily leave Lake Constance and drive along the Rhine for around 20 km to Schaffhausen.  

In the afternoon, you'll have the pleasure of admiring the gigantic Rhine Falls.

In summer, some 600,000 liters of water per second tumble over the rocks of Europe's largest waterfall!



Day 3: Schaffhausen - Stein - Ludwigshafen / Überlingen, approx. 35 - 50 km and boat trip 

Start the day with a boat trip on the magnificent Upper Rhine and enjoy the beautiful scenery from a different angle. The route continues through the Höri peninsula and the spa town of Radolfzell. You pass the Bodanrück, through countless meadows and orchards to Ludwigshafen or Überlingen, with its many parks, gardens and green spaces.  


Day 4: Überlingen - Friedrichshafen / approx. 35km 

Today, your cycling route around Lake Constance takes you past the pilgrimage church of Birnau and the Lake Dwelling Museum. The medieval town of Meersburg is perfectly situated on a steep vineyard slope. Don't miss a visit to the castle! Then cycle past more vineyards and end the stage in Friedrichshafen.



Day 5: Friedrichshafen - Lindau / Bregenz, approx. 30 / 40km 

Your bike ride begins in Langenargen. Here, you can admire the charming Montfort Castle, built in Moorish style. You'll then cycle through orchards to the Bavarian town of Lindau, whose harbour is dominated and watched over by a lion. It's only a few kilometers to Austria. You then follow the shores of the lake to the festival town of Bregenz. 


Day 6: Lindau - Rorschach / Arbon, approx. 35 / 45km 

Stroll through the town of Bregenz and enjoy its beautifully preserved architecture. Continue to Hard and cross the Rhine from the Swiss Alps. You're now on Swiss soil, in Altenrhein, where you'll see the Hundertwasser Halle, the last colorful building by the famous artist. This stage around Lake Constance ends along the shores of the lake to the old port town of Rorschach.



Day 7: Rorschach - Constance, approx. 30 - 50km 

The last stage of your tour on the Lake Constance cycle path is devoted to the canton of Thurgau, affectionately known as "Cider India" because of its large apple orchards and slightly isolated location - at least from a Swiss point of view!

The itinerary guides you along the shores of the lake. Feel free to stay an extra night in Rorschach and continue with a trip to the Appenzell region. 


Day 8: End of tour and individual departure 

After breakfast, your bike tour along the Lake Constance cycle path comes to an end.
