This circular tour by bike around Lake Constance has been put together especially for families with children and for leisurely cyclists. Instead of tackling the challenge of as many kilometres as possible in a day, you explore a new highlight from around Lake Constance every day, at a relaxed tempo. The sections of this family cycling holiday are mostly along the banks of the lake, following well established paths or winding through vineyards and orchards. You don't just visit the larger towns of Konstanz, Friedrichshafen, Lindau and Bregenz, but also the flower island of Mainau, the pile dwellings and the Sea Life centre. To make sure that all the little cyclists get what they're looking for, the holiday includes day tickets for Ravensburger Spieleland. Some sections are shortened by taking the boat. This makes sure there is always enough time for a quick dip in the lake or longer breaks at any of the many playgrounds along the way. A relaxed family cycling holiday on Lake Constance awaits you!

Family Cycling at Lake Constance

Day 1: Individual arrival in Constance

You start your tour in Constance, Lake Constance’s biggest town. 600 years ago this was where the Council of Constance took place, the only council to elect a pope that was held north of the Alps. The Rhine leaves Lake Constance here: 0 kilometres on its way to the North Sea. Only a few minutes by foot from the medieval town centre is the Swiss town of Kreuzlingen with its lively harbour.

Lakefront, Constance

Day 2: Constance ‒ Unteruhldingen / Meersburg, approx. 25 / 30 km + boat trip

Your first bike tour takes you just a short distance out of Konstanz to the flower island of Mainau. Have fun today, exploring the island. Discover the palm house and the butterfly house, explore the adventure playground and the mighty Baroque castle - there's lots of see on the island. Next, you go by boat from nearby Wallhausen to Überlingen. You pass the romantic Baroque church Birnau and are soon in Uhldingen.

Family, Meersburg

Day 3: Unteruhldingen ‒ Friedrichshafen, approx. 25 / 20 km

A journey back in time awaits you today on your family cycling holiday on Lake Constance in the Lake Dwelling Museum Unteruhldingen. It's fun to find out how people lived here on the lake over 6000 years ago. After a short guided tour, you can explore this museum and try out the tools from back in the day yourself. Fast forwarding back into the present, you cycle through medieval Meersburg to Friedrichshafen.

Habour, Constance

Day 4: Trip to Ravensburger Spieleland, approx. 30 km or by bus

Today is a highlight for the kids as they get to go to Ravensburger Spieleland. Experience adventure, fun and action for the entire family with over 70 attractions in eight theme worlds. After a fascinating day, you go back to Friedrichsahfen - conveniently on the Spieleland Bus (not included). You can of course go back by bike. It's a short but hilly route.

Ravensburger Spieleland on the Family Cycling Lake Constance

Day 5: Friedrichshafen ‒ Lindau, approx. 30 km

Visit the Zeppelin museum before you set off on the next section of your family cycling holiday on Lake Constance. Interesting exhibits as well as audio and video recordings explain all about the pioneers of airship travel. Next, cycle off through lush green orchards and charming little villages such as Wasserburg and Nonnenhorn. You soon arrive in the Bavarian town of Lindau, whose harbour is watched over by a 6-m high lion. The old windy historic quarter is on an island which gives it its own very special flair.

Habour, Langenargen

Day 6: Lindau ‒ Rorschach / Arbon, approx. 40 km

Today the direction is up, up, up! The cableway takes you and your children up to the top of Pfänder mountain in just a few minutes. Enjoy breath-taking views of the lake and wander around the Alpine wildlife park, home to many different local animals. Once you've arrived in Bregenz by cableway, hop on to your bikes and cycle over the Swiss border. You soon reach your next destination, cycling through the nature reserve of the Rhine Delta.

Habour, Rorschach

Day 7: Rorschach ‒ Constance, approx. 40 km

The last section on your family cycling holiday on Lake Constance takes you mostly right along the side of the lake. This means that you have plenty of opportunities to hop in for a swim or stop for an ice cream. When you arrive in Konstanz, you should visit the Sea Life Centre. Dive into this fascinating underwater world and discover sharks, turtles and even penguins.

Fillet, Reichenau

Day 8: Individual departure or extended stay

Your Family Cycling tour on Lake Constance comes to an end after breakfast. If you don't want to leave the area quite yet, we would be happy to extend your stay in Constance.

Church, Reichenau
