"Willkommen in Konstanz am Bodensee" Konstanz by yumyum

Konstanz Travel Guide: 267 reviews and 927 photos

Konstanz can be comfortably reached from Switzerland. It's an easy daytrip from Zürich, from where it takes less than 2 hours by train. It's popular for Swiss people to hop over the border for shopping. In pre-Christmas time there is a small X-mas market in the center and on the shore of the lake.

In the flower season most people head of course to the "Insel Mainau" and its beautiful park and botanical gardens.

This lady is constantly dancing. You may have to wait till she turns the right way for the pic!

    I like the buildings here. Sounds quite a nice spot beside the lake.

      Thanks, I revisited a few times but was too lazy to extend my pages. Certainly well worth visiting.

    Hi Sonja, I think my visit to Konstanz was even shorter than yours. I took a ship from Meersburg to Konstanz, walked around for an hour and then took the next ship back. Konstanz is where they start counting km of the Rhine, from the middle of the bridge.

    I spent a short holiday in Konstanz years ago in the 60's and went to Zurich for a day.

    This is very interesting..the custom and their curiosity and eye for details. May be you should give us more gist about this divide.

    Nice, little town with beautiful architecture and many Swiss shoppers to see :-) And to see how the state border checkup looks like.

    Nice little page, but why is the exchange of goods still so difficult between Germany and lovely Switzerland. At least I hope I can bring some chocolate without being arrested at the customs. :-)
