Day 1: Individual arrival in Kressbronn

Kressbronn is idyllically situated between orchards and vineyards on the northern banks of Lake Constance. Busy towns such as Friedrichshafen, Bregenz or Konstanz are also quickly reached. Hotel Schattmaier, your accommodation on this tour, is right next to the biggest yacht harbour on Lake Constance and has its own sailing school. After all your cycling, you can relax in the hotel's own spa area.

Day 2: Wellness & sailing

Today you get to really spoil yourself. The whirlpool, steam bath and sauna area await you in the hotel! Otherwise go off on your own bike trip or a walk along the farm trail through the countryside around Kressbonn. In the evening an experienced skipper takes you out sailing for a couple of hours on the lake.

Day 3: Trip to Bregenz, approx. 50 km

On the east-side of Lake Constance and at the foot of Pfänder mountain is the town of Bregenz - rich in culture and also known for appearing in the James Bond film Quantum of Solace. Did you also know that there is a mummified shark over the city gates? The trip up the mountain by the Pfänder cable car is well worth it in sunny weather as the views of about 240 Alpine peaks and Lake Constance is spectacular.

Day 4: Trip to Constance, approx. 50 km + boat trips

Today's route takes you through Friedrichshafen to Meersburg. Plan a little walk through the old town and to the castle. Then set off on the ferry to Konstanz. Walking past all these Renaissance buildings and observing their beautiful frescoes the time will fly. You take the catamaran from Konstanz harbour back to Friedrichshafen and then it's only a few kilometres by bike to Kressbonn.

Day 5: Individual departure or extension of stay

Did you like the cycle and sail combination at Lake Constance? If you want to stay a bit longer in the region, we would be happy to extend your stay.
