Historical Town on Bodensee

Constance is Cultural and Economic center of Lake of Konstanz, which is also known as "Bodensee" in German Language.

This lake has great significance as it join three countries together:
Switzerland, Germany & Austria.

Constance is a very old and historical town of Germany and it was first settled by Romans. It played a leading role in Middle ages when it was the center of the ´Duchy of Swabia´, whose territory included much of Europe and it was also the largest Bishopric, North of the (swiss) Alps. This town reached its apex when the ´Council of Constance´ convened here from 1414 to 1418. The meeting chose a single Pope (replacing Three others) and thereby healing the ´Great Schism´in catholic church.

Today Constance is a rather more liberal town with little Industry. About one in seven inhabitants - affectionately known as Seehas (Lake Rabbits) - is a student in University of Constance, which was founded in 1966.
