Thanks to many trips on the ships of the White Fleet, you will get to know the whole Lake Constance region – you definitely won’t get bored! Say hello to the 6-metre tall lion statue in Lindau’s harbour, explore the sleepy ruins and gardens of Salem Castle and experience the vibrant colours of the flower island of Mainau. It will be up to you to decide how you want to spend each individual day of your bicycle holiday.

Day 1: Individual arrival in Constance

Today you will move into your hotel in Constance, which remains medieval in character to this day.  In 1414, the town hosted the only church council ever to take place north of the Alps. A small museum is dedicated to the Czech reformer Jan Hus, who was burnt at the stake here. The symbol of the city is the statue of Imperia, which is a memorial to the prostitutes of the council time. The aquariums of the Sea Life Center are also worth a visit, as is the Archaeological Museum.

Later in the year, Rhododendrons can be seen in their full beauty. In the months of September and October, you will find both Dahlias and around 30.000 rosebushes.
