Lake Constance

Lake Constance is situated in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. Its shorelines lie in the German states of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg, the Swiss cantons of St. Gallen, Thurgau, and Schaffhausen, and the Austrian state of Vorarlberg. The Rhine flows into the lake from the south, with its original course forming the Austro-Swiss border, and has its outflow on the "Lower Lake" where — except for Schaffhausen — it forms the German-Swiss border until the city of Basel.

 

Lake Constance is the third largest freshwater lake in Central and Western Europe in terms of surface area (and the second largest in terms of volume), after Lake Geneva and Lake Balaton.

 

On the shores of Lake Constance, there is so much to experience all year round! Winding alleys in picturesque old towns, unique views over the Alpine panorama, the broad expanses of Lake Constance set against the snow-covered peaks, even in summer, and a diverse cultural landscape.

 

The sun shines for more than 2,000 hours a year, but Lake Constance exudes its inimitable charm in any weather. In spring an autumn, the mild climate is perfect for slipping in your walking boots and exploring nature. And if by chance it should rain or snow: why not visit one of our innumerable museums or treat yourself to a break in one of the region's thermal baths? Relax, enjoy and let your spirit roam free.
