Notice

Lake Constance, between Germany, Austria and Switzerland is famous for its picturesque towns and villages, such as Güttingen, Stein am Rhein and Gottmadingen.
You can admire the castle Meesburg, the Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen or the houses on stilts in Uhldingen. Mainau, famous flower island and the island of Reichenau, are listed as 
World Heritage Sites by UNESCO and are perfect destinations for an excursion.

The city of Constance, founded in the fourth century and named after the emperor Constantius is divided by the Rhine river. On the southern bank are the historical center and the district Paradies (former district with cloisters of nuns and monks), and on the northern side are the former municipalities that were gradually annexed to the city. Located on the Swiss and german border, the border runs through the streets and houses.
The climate is temperate thanks to the lake which enables  the culture of vineyards (white wine).

 

Day 1 : Individual arrival in Constance
Your home for the next few days is Constance, the biggest town on Lake Constance. The medieval old town remained unspoiled from bomb attacks during the war and is still very much intact even today. Wander through the narrow
streets of the oldest part of the town, Niederburg, visit the Münster cathedral and admire the "Imperia" at the harbour
- a 9-metre high statue which refers to a noble courtesan who lived in the town during the times of the Council of Constance.


Day 2 : Constance – Meersburg – Lindau, approx. 50 km and back by boat
Today, you go by ferry to Meersburg and from there you cycle to Friedrichshafen. From here, you follow the Lake Constance cycle path to Langenargen and through lovely little villages such as Wasserburg and Nonnenhorn to Lindau, the Bavarian lakeside "metropolis". The historic town centre is a popular destination for visitors. In the afternoon, a ferry takes you back to Constance.


Day 3 : Day trip to Mainau Island, approx. 15 km
First you explore the "flower island" of Mainau. Bikes are not allowed on the island : simply park at the entrance and access the island via the bridge. Countless flowers bloom here - tulips in spring, roses in summer and dahlias in the autumn. But the castle, the palm garden, the butterfly house, the Arboretum and many other attractions are waiting to be explored.


Day 4 : Constance – Überlingen – Salem – Meersburg – Constance, approx. 55 km + boat and ferry trip
First you cycle to Wallhausen where a boat takes you to Überlingen on the other side of the lake. Always along the side of the lake, you continue to the abbey church, Birnau, where you get wonderful views of the lake. Along the socalled "Prälatenweg" takes you on a pleasant ride to Salem, where not just the castle awaits but Affenberg (lit. monkey hill, not included) with over 200 semi-wild Berber monkeys! From Meersburg, take the ferry back to Constance.


Day 5 : Constance – Reichenau Island – Stein am Rhein – Constance, approx. 50 km + boat trip
Your first destination is the island of Reichenau, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2001. A boat takes you to the Höri
peninsula, to Gaienhofen where you can visit the Hermann- Hesse house. Next you cycle along the Höri peninsula via
Hemmenhofen where Otto Dix lived for a while and then on to Stein am Rhein. The return trip takes you through Swiss
fishing villages back to Constance.


Day 6 : Individual departure
After breakfast, you start your individual return journey.
