With shorelines on multiple countries this expanse of water is relaxing and scenic. We enjoyed from the German town of Lindau. A number of different trips are available at different times of year to get a closer involvement with the lake.

Forget about going to Germany, it is not suitable for tourists. The officials are so unhelpful and arrogant, generally. Spend your holiday cash in a place where you are respected, not in Germany!

Spent three days cycling around Lake Constance in support of the Alzheimer's Society. Wonderful scenery. Wouldn't have been possible without the services of radweg-reisen, who transported my luggage from one accommodation to another. They were brilliant.
