Lake-Constance-Cycle-path

A most popular tour.

The Lake Constance cycle path is one of Europe’s most popular cycle routes. On this varied tour you will cycle around the entire lake through three countries! The highlights are the medieval towns of Constance, Stein am Rhein, Meersburg and Schaffhausen. Not to forget the Rhine Falls, which you get to see up close on a boat trip to the Rhine Falls rock. The daily sections of the route through charming countryside are not too long, making this tour perfect also for people who are not so used to cycling. And there is so much to see and explore on the way that the time in the saddle will simply fly by.
