Look forward to this Lake Constance tour, as you circle the Obersee, which approaches the Alps near Bregenz. Famous cities such as Constance, Meersburg, Friedrichshafen, Lindau and Bregenz welcome you. Always close to the shore, cozy, flat, the magnificent backdrop of the Alps in front of your eyes, you cycle completely relaxed around the lake. If you want, you can also start your cycling trip in Friedrichshafen or Lindau.

This trip is perfect for people who:

  • Romantics: Charming hotel tours are perfect for you if you have a preference for small, romantic accommodation.
  • Indecisive travellers: On this trip, you don't have to choose between water or mountains. Swim in the Upper or Bodensee and enjoy the Alpine panorama all around you.

You will start your beautiful bike journey in Constance, the largest city on Lake Constance, which is still medieval today. In 1414 it was the scene of the only ecclesiastical council north of the Alps. The symbol of the city is the statue of the Imperia, which erects a monument to the prostitutes of the conciliar period. The aquariums of the Sea Life Center are also highly recommended.

From Constance you cycle to the beautiful flower island Mainau, which is worth a visit. By bike you have quickly reached the boat dock in Wallhausen and already you sail comfortably across Lake Constance to the old imperial city of Überlingen with the beautiful Gothic Münster. Look forward to your cycling route past the baroque pilgrimage church Birnau and the reconstructed pile buildings in Uhldingen to Meersburg with its ancient Merovingian castle. Meersburg awaits you with many attractions. Visit the oldest inhabited castle in Germany, the last residence of the poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, the Neue Schloss with the magnificent staircase of Balthasar Neumann and the market square. Accompanied by the most beautiful alpine panorama, you then cycle to Friedrichshafen with the famous Zeppelin Museum. Overnight in Immenstadt or Friedrichshafen.

Today you cycle first through Langenargen, where you can admire the model of the famous Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Through extensive orchards with magnificent views of the alpine panorama, you can cycle to the Bavarian town of Lindau, whose old town is located on an island. Here a small city tour is a must! Marvel at the beautiful lake promenade, where lighthouse and lion frame the famous harbour entrance. After a few kilometers you will find yourself on Austrian soil and cycle directly along the lake to the festival city of Bregenz. Overnight in Lindau or Bregenz.

Stroll through the city of Bregenz with its superbly preserved upper town. Marvel at the Martinsturm, the largest onion tower in Central Europe, and look forward to a unique atmosphere radiating from the streets, rows of houses, squares and fountains. At Hard you will then cross the Rhine coming from the Swiss Alps, whose estuary delta is now an important nature reserve. Already on Swiss soil you cycle via Staad along the lake shore to the old St. Gallian port city of Rorschach.

The last day on the Lake Constance cycle path belongs to the Canton of Thurgau, affectionately called Most India because of its important apple cultivation and its isolated location from a Swiss point of view. Look forward to the towns of Arbon and Romanshorn with their castles and half-timbered houses. Today you should definitely try the "Schümli" (= Swiss coffee based on espresso) on one of the many lake terraces. With the fantastic view here the cafe tastes even better! Through well-kept small villages you cycle on the lake shore back to Konstanz.

After breakfast, your tour ends again in the hotel in Konstanz.
