The German shore of Lake Constance

from Lindau to Stockach
Hagnau at Lake Constance

Genuine Lake Constance

On the German shore of Lake Constance, there is so much to experience all year round! Winding alleys in picturesque old towns, unique views over the Alpine panorama, the broad expanses of Lake Constance set against the snow-covered peaks, even in summer, and a diverse cultural landscape. The sun shines for more than 2,000 hours a year, but Lake Constance exudes its inimitable charm in any weather. In spring an autumn, the mild climate is perfect for slipping on your walking boots and exploring nature. And if by chance it should rain or snow: why not visit one of our innumerable museums or treat yourself to a break in one of the region's thermal baths? Relax, enjoy and let your spirit roam free.
