Have you only seen pictures before now of the magnificent Schaffhausen Rhine Falls? It's time to see them properly! It doesn't matter if you're planning a long or just a short cycling holiday, or if you want it to be leisurely ore more demanding - you can get right up close to the pounding falls on many of the tours. On your cycle ride to Schaffhausen you pass the wonderful scenery of the Swiss side of Lake Constance. You'll love the picturesque towns with timber-frame houses and the spectacular views you get of the surrounding countryside.

Even from a distance you'll hear the roar of the water getting louder and louder. At the Rhine Falls, just stand and gaze at the thundering masses of water. One highlight is definitely a boat trip to the rocks in the falls, which takes you right up close. Many other sights await you on your cycling tours. Get to know the well-known towns of Konstanz, Friedrichshafen or Lindau. Visit the island of Mainau and the Pile Dwellings museum. A spontaneous break or a longer cycling holiday - book a bike tour with an extra trip to the Rhine Falls!

A classic route and one of our best-seller holidays is the Lake Constance cycle path. Three countries, four islands - Mainau, Reichenau, Lindau and Werd as well as numerous lovely towns wait to be discovered by you on your 8-day tour. Short daily sections mean lots of breaks! Admire the many attractions and sights on your way round Lake Constance. A special highlight is, of course, the Rhine Falls.

Longer sections but hardly any hills is what you get on an athletic tour round Lake Constance. On your tour, you'll cycle through Switzerland, Germany and Austria.

People with more time on their hands should go for the larger tour around Lake Constance by bike.

Thanks to the many admissions and boat trips included in the price, look forward to a wonderful cycling holiday.

For people who don't want to spend the whole week cycling we recommend our cycling holiday on the Lower Lake. Right after your arrival, hop on to your bike and start the first section. The tour is characterised by the many scenic highlights. The volcanic cones of the Hegau mountains, Europe's biggest waterfall and medieval villages and towns will soon cast their spell on you. If you've got a couple more days' time for cycling then on the tour of the Lower Lake and the Rhine Falls, you can also see Überlinger See  - the northern part of Lake Constance.

It's a particularly charming cycling tour and you get to see Lake Constance, the Rhine Falls, the Danube and the Allgäu. First you cycle along the beautiful scenic Lower Lake to the Rhine Falls. You soon leave Lake Constance to head north and ride along the young Danube to Württemberg's Allgäu.

The Swiss lake route extends along Lake Constance right up high into the mountains. On this easy-to-cycle tour, you'll get to know the sights and attractions on 9 days of perfect pedaling. The highlights are definitely the Rhine Falls near Schaffhausen and a trip to Appenzeller Land with its luscious green fields and wonderful panorama of the Alps.
