Have the Lakeside Getaway of Your Dreams in Bavaria
Explore Germany's Natural Beauty at Lake Constance in Bavaria! Bordering Germany, Austria and Switzerland, Lake Constance is a breath-taking body of water at the foot of the Alps.
Beyond its sparkling expanse of water lies picturesque scenery and unrivaled nature views.
Lake Constance (called "Bodensee" in German) is a hotspot for water sports enthusiasts and history lovers alike. You can take in the expansive shoreline from a boat, jetski or on a wonderful hike.
The lake's deepest section, Obersee, is surrounded by quaint German villages that offer traditional marketplaces and cuisine with unobstructed views of the Swiss Alps.
During your stay, you might want to book a holiday home in Lake Constance for relaxation and privacy reasons. With your own private quarters, you can explore the surrounding towns and nature while having ample amenities to relax on your downtime.
To help you set up your itinerary, here are just a few of the wonderful attractions waiting for you to discover at Lake Constance!
The cultural hub and largest town on the lake is Konstanz. Fans of the theater and music scene will delight in the towns' artistic offerings. Dating back to the 11th century, Konstanz paints a beautiful portrait of German history with architecture from the 15th and 17th centuries.
You can explore the 15th-century entrance, which boasts a beautiful interior of 1460 choir stalls and a 13th century Holy Sepulcher. Scale to the top of the village tower and take in the panoramic views of Konstanz with the Swiss Alps as a natural backdrop.
Within Lake Constance's borders lies a magical garden that spans 110 acres. Dubbed "flower island," Mainau is an incredibly romantic site perfect for couples. Get lost among the rows of fragrant flowers or tour the 15th-century palace, Schloss Mainau, constructed by the Grand Duke of Baden.
Children will be delighted at the petting zoo and water park at Mainau Kinderland. The whole family can be enchanted by the hundreds of wild butterflies at the butterfly house. Complete your visit by dining on authentic German cuisine at one of the Mainau Island's restaurants.
Visit a quaint and peaceful harbor in Lindau with a 13-century lighthouse. Explore the nearby town of Altstadt, which is rich in Renaissance and Gothic architecture. Tour Old Town Hall, St. Peter's Church and enjoy wandering through many of the small shops and traditional cafes.
Not far from a holiday home at Lake Constance lies Konstanz Harbor. You will be greeted upon arrival by the mysterious and eye-catching statue known as Imperia. This monument was built in 1993 to commemorate the meeting place of cardinals responsible for the election of Pope Martin V in 1417. That location is also available to tour, and it is known by locals as the Konzilsgebäude.
Whether you are traveling on your honeymoon or looking for an excellent family vacation spot, Lake Constance offers something for everyone. Embrace history and tradition among astonishing scenery. Relax and bond by the lake, watch the sunset as you walk along the shore and greet the morning with a sunrise breakfast overlooking the mountains.
For rest, relaxation and a truly delightful taste of German culture, visit Lake Constance.
