Lake Constance (Bodensee in German) is in fact the meeting of two independent lakes (the lower lake "Untersee", 63 km², and the upper lake "Obersee", 473 km²). There are no less than 10 islands over 2000 m² to visit. The island of Reichenau, the largest, has an abbey listed as World Heritage by UNESCO while the island of Mainau, has been fully developed for tourism. There are botanical gardens, greenhouses and an animal park.
The lake is fed by the Rhine and is located in the foothills of the Alps. The local ecosystem is very special and the temperatures are mild all year round.
Another particularity, the lake is the crossroads of 3 countries: Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Despite this administrative division, a cycle route is designed to be able to complete the entire tour of Lake Constance. There are also many greenways that allow you to get away from the lake to discover the surroundings, regardless of which country you are in.
In disorder we can cite: the flower island of Mainau, vineyards, hermal stations, prehistoric dwellings on stilts, a living culture, castles and fortresses, the Rhine falls, abbeys, the port of Lindau guarded by a giant lion, the city of Constance, the island of Reichenau ... you may not have time to discover everything but you will know how to occupy your days!
