EXCURSIONS ON LAKE CONSTANCE
GERMANY, SWITZERLAND AND AUSTRIA – ONE LAKE, THREE COUNTRIES.
The best way to explore the 273 kilometres of shoreline around Lake Constance is by bike. Hard-nosed cyclists can just about manage the entire circuit in one full day. For less sport-orientated visitors, those who appreciate the lake's unique natural environment and are interested in its outstanding cultural highlights, a more leisurely pace is to be recommended: there are numerous fascinating detours to be made into the countryside surrounding the shoreline. Our list of "classic excursions" on Lake Constance will help you decide what you really cannot miss, no matter whether you are travelling by bike, boat, car or on foot.
