The Untersee is home to a stretch of largely unspoilt nature - swathes of reedy marshland, forests boasting a wide range of species, natural lakes and colourful wildflower meadows. At the heart of this unique landscape lies the officially recognised health resort of Radolfzell. With an idyllic old town, the longest stretch of lake shore and outstanding transport connections, the third-largest town on Lake Constance stands for nature, the environment, health and a true experience.
The large squares and narrow alleyways of the old town tell fascinating stories from the founding of Radolfzell to modern times. Today, they set the scene for lively weekly and evening markets and festivals steeped in tradition, such as “Fastnacht” and the “Hausherrenfest”. Numerous retailers and the Seemaxx factory outlet centre offer the opportunity to enjoy an extended shopping tour. A number of restaurants, wine bars and cafés are perfect for whiling away the time.
Radolfzell is the town with the longest accessible lake shore on Lake Constance. The nature reserve on the Mettnau peninsula, swathes of reedy marshland and an extensive, natural promenade are a little corner of Heaven for people and animals alike. In addition to Lake Constance, five smaller natural lakes offer numerous rare plant and animal species a natural refuge.
Take a break from your daily routine, soothe your soul and take a deep breath of fresh air – it couldn’t be easier by the lake. Anyone looking to recharge their batteries can enjoy gentle sports such as qigong overlooking the water, relaxation in the “bora” sauna oasis or a traditional Mettnau treatment offering a successful range of services under the banner “movement is life”.
