Look forward to this tour at Lake Constance. As there are numerous entries to child-friendly attractions,  there is no time for boredom for the offspring. Visit the island of Mainau, the pile dwellings in Uhldingen, the game park Ravensburger and drive high on the pledges 

This trip is perfect for people who:

  • Young families: This tour is particularly suitable for children and adults together.
  • Sea enthusiasts: Visit the Sea Life Centre on a day trip and be amazed by the many different animals.
  • Castle fans: There are interesting castles around Lake Constance that can take you back in time.


With over 82,000 inhabitants, Constance is the largest city on Lake Constance and has maintained its long tradition as a city of trade and culture up to the present day. The cultural city is characterized by many historic buildings, such as the "Cathedral of Our Lady of Our Lady", which for twelve centuries was the cathedral of the Bishops of Constance and served as the meeting room of the Council of Constance (1414-1418). The Stadttheater, which is the oldest permanent stage in Germany, 400 years old, is another highlight.


Sea-Life Center Constance
In the SEA LIFE Constance, you will discover a variety of marine life: from curious and protective to rare and enigmatic animals.
Many of these animals are on the red list of endangered animals. They have been saved and can not be returned to the natural habitat or have been born and raised as part of the SEA LIFE protection projects in the aquariums.

Mainau Island
With an area of about 45 hectares, the Mainau is the third largest island in Lake Constance. Because of its extremely rich subtropical, partly also tropical vegetation, the Mainau is also known as the flower island in Lake Constance.

Island Mainau

Pfahlbaumuseum Unteruhldingen
The Pfahlbaumuseum Unteruhldingen is an archaeological open-air museum, which is located on the shore of Lake Constance, with a museum building. It is the oldest open-air museum in Germany. The Freilichtmuseum contains several reconstruction sections and has been rebuilt several times since the opening of the museum in 1922. Since 1922 over 10 million visitors have visited the pile houses.

Meersburg castle
The Meersburg Castle, also the Old Castle or the Old Castle in Meersburg on the Lake Constance, is the oldest inhabited castle in Germany in the 7th century. A tour of the Burgmuseum gives an insight into more than 30 rooms. Including the old Burgküche, the Dürnitz, the Palas, the Brunnenstube, the Waffenhalle, Wehrgangs, Rittersaal, Burgverlies, two chapels, stable, Nordbastion and much more. Also the living rooms and the dying room of the poetess Annette von Droste-Hülshoff are included in this tour. In addition, you can climb the "Dagobertsturm" with a view of the city, the lake and the Alps. In the tower is a 19th century prison room as well as the Renaissancesaal with treasure chamber. In the deepest part of the tower, the torture chamber gives insight into the jurisdiction of the Middle Ages.

Meersburg castle

The state capital of Lake Constance has many sights to see, so you can get inspired by historical buildings, traditional landmarks and modern architecture. A special highlight is the Festspielhaus and the world-famous Festspiele on the largest lake stage in the world.


Seebühne Bregenz
In particular the play on the lake on the world's largest lake stage (as of 2005) in the Lake Constance is a draw for a large number of visitors. It is known for the beauty of the natural setting of Lake Constance, oversized stages, technical pieces of the cabinet and a unique acoustics achieved by the Bregenzer directional hearing technique.

You start your beautiful bike tour in the beautiful city of Constance, the largest town at Lake Constance, which still presents itself medieval. 1414 it was the site of the only church council north of the Alps. Landmark is the statue of Imperia, which is a monument to the prostitutes of the times of the council.

From Constance you cycle to the flower island of Mainau. Marvel at the flowers and the beautiful gardens. By bike you quickly reach the pier in Wallhausen and you cruise comfortably across Lake Constance to the old imperial city of Überlingen with its striking Gothic cathedral. Look forward to the bike path along the baroque pilgrimage church Birnau and the reconstructed Pfahlbaumuseum in Uhldingen. You continue cycling to Meersburg, from where the car ferry will take you back to Constance.

After breakfast you will go to the car ferry pier and across the lake to the medieval Meersburg. Use the time to visit the old town, Meersburg Castle and enjoy the view over the lake. Then cycle on via Immenstaad to Friedrichshafen with its famous Zeppelin Museum, where you can see a detailed replica of the "Hindenburg" Zeppelin (flying ship). Overnight stay in Friedrichshafen.

Your way to Spieleland is not so far by bike, but quite hilly. That's why you can easily take the bus from Friedrichshafen to the amusement park (not included). Ravensburger Spieleland is a great place to play, romp and explore all day long.

Today you will first cycle through Langenargen, where you can admire the model of the famous Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Through sprawling orchards with stunning views of the Alps you cycle relaxed to the Bavarian town of Lindau, whose old town is on an island. Here a small city tour is a must! Marvel at the beautiful waterfront where lighthouse and lion frame the famous harbor entrance.

After a few kilometers you are in Austria and cycle directly along the lake to the town of Bregenz. Stroll around the city of Bregenz with its perfectly preserved upper town. Marvel at the Martin's Tower, the largest onion domes in Central Europe and look forward to a unique atmosphere that radiates from the streets, rows of houses, plazas and fountains. The cable car takes you up to the top of the Pfänder! At the top you can enjoy a wonderful view over the lake and say hello to native animals in the Alpine Wildlife Park. Shortly after Höchst your cross the Swiss border and are fast in Rorschach or Arbon.

The last day of the cycle route belongs the canton of Thurgau, also fondly called Mostindien for its many orchards and its remote location from a Swiss perspective. Look forward to the town of Arbon and Romanshorn with its castles and half-timbered houses. Today you should absolutely try the "Schümli" (= Swiss coffee espresso-based) at one of the many lakeside terraces. With fantastic views the cafe tastes even better! Through well kept villages you cycle along the lake shore back to Constance.

After breakfast, your round tour ends back in Constance in the hotel.
