Niederburg, Constance

Day 1: Individual arrival in Constance

You will begin your cycle trip in Constance, the largest town on the Lake of Constance, which is still very medieval in character to this day. In 1414 it hosted the only Church Council to ever be held north of the Alps. A small museum plays tribute to the Czech Reformer Jan Hus, who was burnt at the stake here. The Swiss town of Kreuzlingen is located directly next to Constance. The harbour and lakeside area with its beautiful park are worth a visit here.

Day 2: Constance ‒ Radolfzell, approx. 50 km

Today´s tour will lead you from Constance through picturesque Swiss fishing villages. On the left bank of the Rhine you will reach Stein am Rhein with its medieval houses. Back on German territory you will cycle along the Höri peninsula through Gaienhofen and Hemmenhofen, where Hermann Hesse and Otto Dix once lived. Your destination is the old imperial town of Radolfzell which is now a health resort.

Zeppelin-Museum, Friedrichshafen

Day 3: Radolfzell ‒ Friedrichshafen, approx. 60 km

Today you will cross over the Bodanrück hills and reach the Überlingen lake at Bodman. You cycle along the lakeshore towards Überlingen with its gothic cathedral. You pass the baroque pilgrimage church of Birnau and the reconstructed lake dwellings in Uhldingen on your way to Meersburg with its ancient Merovingian castle. The tour then continues on through vineyards to the Zeppelin town of Friedrichshafen, where the airship museum and the harbour are worth a visit.
