Lake Constance in Germany

One of the most attractive areas of Germany is where Lake Constance is located, which is colloquially called that way but whose official name is Lake Bodensee . It is born on the border of Germany with Switzerland and Austria and all its surroundings have great cultural beauty, as well as a very important cultural heritage. Here you will also discover the most beautiful medieval corners of the country.

In all the towns that you will find on the shores of Lake Constance you will discover innumerable vestiges of other times and other cultures, summer being the best time to visit them since it is when more local festivals are celebrated. In addition, on the lake you can practice various water sports , so if you like these sports it is the ideal place to combine them with a spectacular landscape.

The best way to enjoy all the beauty of the lake is to take a road route to get to know not only landscapes but also various locations. Lindau is the first town that you will find on this route, a place that has many historical buildings and that has been chosen as a Historical Monument. In its streets you can see the Roman heritage and it is a fishing village in which its old lighthouse, the Magturm, as well as the new one, the Neuer Leuchtturm, is still preserved.

Other towns that you can find along the way are Mainau, Wasserburg and Constanza, and the total journey by car does not exceed 2 hours so you can spend time in each of them. Mainau is a small island that you can take a ferry to from Meersbug, a small baroque town not far from Lindau.

In Wasserburg you will find fantastic landscapes, especially if you like photography as they are the typical postcard images. You will not only see natural environments but there are very striking buildings, such as a church that has a beautiful tower. Finally, Constanza is the largest city in the region and has a very beautiful Romanesque cathedral.
