Cycletour-Lake-Constance-compact

Mainau, Zeppelin and Mostindien.

You will have to look around hard to find another classic cycle path that is as popular as Lake Constance. Three countries participate in the large lake in the heart of Europe. Austria, Germany and Switzerland add a special flair to the lake. This unique symbiosis of various cultures contributed a number of precious treasures of art. To mention only a few of them: Cultural heritage Island Reichenau, baroque style pilgrims church Birnau or the historic old town of Stein on Rhine. Add the marvellous countryside along the lake and a cycle path winding the way through idyllic meadows, along glittering water and in front of the stunning peaks of the Alps.

Itinerary

Make the most of your stay and visit flower island Mainau or stroll through the very well maintained old town of Constance. Here the Council of Constance met from 1414 to 1418 in the Munster and the Council House under presiding Emperor Sigismund. The objective of the council was a thorough reform of the roman-catholic church. Very interesting are also the aquariums of Seal Life Centre and the archaeological museum. Distribution of your rental bicycles (if booked). Overnight stay is in Constance.

First highlight is the island Reichenau, world cultural heritage since 2001. You should visit the church of St. Georg with its frescoes. Trip Reichenau is possible with additional kilometres.

Today you cycle in Switzerland and back to Constance. One fisher village after the other, Gottlieben is said to be the most beautiful. Get on a boat in Wallhausen and reach the once independent city Überlingen with late-gothic Munster and beautiful park and Lake Promenade. Overnight stay is in Überlingen.

Leaving Überlingen in the morning you cycle through vineyards to Zeppelin city Friedrichshafen. The baroque style pilgrim church Birnau and ancient Meersburg cross your path. Vineyards, orchards and a stunning view of the Alps are steady companions on your cycle tour today. Overnight stay is in Kressbronn and surroundings.

Cycling through large orchards you reach Bavarian Lindau, picturesque city on a peninsula. Next station is Bregenz. The capital of Austrian federal country Vorarlberg is renowned for the yearly summer festival on the biggest lake-stage worldwide. Afterwards you cross the delta of river Rhine, home of an important natural reserve. Overnight stay is in the region Höchst/Rorschach.

On your last day you visit Romanshorn, largest and most important Swiss port on Lake Constance. Along the lake you cross the apple-canton Thurgau. Tidy little half timbered villages line the way back to Constance. Today you should visit island Mainau, if you did not have the opportunity earlier. Return of rental bicycles and overnight in Constance.

Tour character
