I'm not sure I've ever enjoyed table service on board an inland ferry service before, particularly not a service where the quality of the food and drinks on offer was excellent. Then again, the Catamaran is excellent too. A really high quality service, which runs...More

This is the best (at least fastest) option for commuting between Friedrichshafen and Konstanz. Well, it's a bit pricey (payed around 50 Euros for two adults and one child, two-way tickets). But the travel was very pleasant, there is also a board bistro.

The catamaran combines hourly Friedrichshafen and Konstanz, travel time about 50 minutes. Target, the respective port of the two cities. An advantage is that you can reach the center in a few minutes. Pleasant and relaxed cruise. Recommended definitely. 88046 Friedrichshafen, port building
