Thurgau Bodensee

Spring in Altnau at Lake Constance

Typical Thurgau

Endless views over the water and the mountains within your reach: the rolling hills of Thurgau unfold on the southern shore of Lake Constance. Families love the camp-sites by the water's edge. Holidaymakers in search of culture can enjoy a journey of discovery off the beaten track. And with its numerous unusual hotels, the canton of Thurgau shows just how modern and innovative such a rural region can be. The canton is also home to the Müller-Thurgau white wine. It is served in cosy taverns as well as in the roughly 20 Gault-Millau restaurants in the region. Idyllic paths through orchards all lead to the same destination: a relaxed means of finding yourself.
