This short cycling break to the Rhine Falls and to Constance is specially conceived for guests who do not have a lot of free time. After your arrival you begin cycling straightaway. You explore the western side of Lake Constance and cycle through very attractive landscapes which once fascinated Otto Dix and Hermann Hesse. The volcanic mountains of the Hegau, Europe’s largest waterfall and numerous medieval villages and towns characterise this tour. If you have further to travel to reach the starting point of the trip, you can book extra nights at the start or end of the trip, so that you can enjoy a stress-free arrival and departure.

Cyclists, Stein am Rhein

Day 1: Individual arrival, Constance – Schaffhausen, approx. 50 km

In the morning you hand in your luggage at our office by 10 a.m. and start cycling straight afterwards along the southern Swiss shore of Lake Constance to Stein am Rhein. Along the route you come across Castle Arenenberg and the monastery island Werd and cycle through picturesque fishing villages such as Gottlieben and Steckborn. Fresco-adorned half-timbered buildings and narrow alleys await you in Stein am Rhein. After an extensive tour of the town follow the Rhine, which has now left Lake Constance, to Schaffhausen.

Waterfall, Schaffhausen

Day 2: Schaffhausen – Rhine Falls – Radolfzell, approx. 55 km

After a good breakfast you cycle to the Rhine Falls, only about 5 km downstream from Schaffhausen. You can get right up close to them on a boat – an unforgettable experience! Then follow the Rhine upstream back to Stein am Rhein. From there you cycle along the Höri peninsula, which was home to Hermann Hesse and Otto Dix for a time, to Radolfzell. Enjoy the views over to Reichenau island and the Hegau volcanoes!

Ueberlingen

Day 3: Radolfzell – Constance, approx. 45 km + ferry trip

Today you leave the lower lake and cross the foothills of the Bodanrück before you get to Bodman-Ludwigshafen which is located on the northwestern part of the lake – the Überlinger See. From here the path takes you to Überlingen where you have time for a break along the town's pleasant lakeside promenade. Passing the pilgrimage church at Birnau, you continue on to Uhldingen. The reconstructed lake dwellings are well worth a visit before cycling on to Meersburg and then crossing over to Constance.

 

Konstanz, Harbour

Day 4: Individual journey home or extension of stay
