The ideal place from which to take day trips to Meeresburg or Mainau among others. Close to the Old City with it's many attractions.

I love these small harbours on the lake that still hold that old architecture and old world charm. The wharf area is a busy life of cafes, festivals and activity. A magnificent way to spend an afternoon.

You can walk along the harbor and you get good views of the lake, you can see all the boats coming in and there are lots of restaurants.

If you walk down the end past the Aquarium there’s some nice walks along the waterfront. I even went for a little wade, and popped across the border to Switzerland. The area also has a good array of restaurants and bars at various price points
