“Bodensee is more of a sea”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

a three country zone (Germany to the east, Switzerland to the west and Austria at the South), lake constance or Bodensee is a large water body with numerous fleet of ship going from one place to the other. The lake surrounding climate is perfect for growing fruits especially apples and all around the lake stretching from Friedrichshafen to Lindau on the German side and Romanshorn to Rorsasch on the Swiss side is full with apple orchards. If one goes in summer definitely a lake side camping place is where one should stay. Lindau apart from its history is famous for the legacy of the Nobel laureate meet each year. Bregenz in Austria is a cultural centre of the region hosting the biggest lake stage in the world each summer. The view of the alps on the swiss side from the German side on a clear day is quite pleasant. Overall the region is exceptional for a small relaxed vacation.

“Wonderful Vacation location”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Lake Constance is the second largest lake in Europe. The Island of Lindau is situated on the the lake. The town has lots of really nice shops and resturants. An amazing place to stay, rent bikes and vacation. The best hotel in the area is the Bad Schaken Hotel. Take an outing on one of the large cruise boats on the Lake. You can spend three hours going in one direction from one small town to the next. The Island of Mainau has an amazing garden. On the opposite side of the lake is Breganz, its in Austria, and has a summer theater series. the actual stage is located in the water, with a huge bleacher area in the open facing the lake.
