Throw a dart at the Map

In my true nature, I had a couple of extra days in Germany with no idea what to do. I pulled out my trusty Hertz map and decided that Konstanz looked like a good place to spend a day. Boy was I right.


After a brief walk around the Centrum (It was Sunday, so most stores were closed), I wandered down to the harbor.

First stop was at a beer hall to quench my thirst.

My travelling luck continues to hold as it was a beautiful day.

I then wandered over to Switzerland - just to say that I did.

Then I took a tour of the harbor - which, while a little boring, gives one an idea of what is around.

Hotel Row

After getting back, I wandered through a park where a Reggae concert was going on. From there I walked out of town along a walking path that passed several beautiful looking hotels and over a finger of the Rhein river. Really a nice walk, and there are beaches on which to take a break or have a snack. Don't be surprised if you see some clothing optional places - I did.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The area around the Bodensee
  • In a nutshell:Where else can you walk along the beach and find yourself in another country (Switzerland)

    I had a really nice day in Konstanz, too, but I missed the clothing-optional spots! I guess it was too cold for that when I was there ; )
