Cycling holidays Lake Constance

Mainau, Zeppelin and Mostindien.

You will have to look around hard to find another classic cycle path that is as popular as Lake Constance. Three countries participate in the large lake in the heart of Europe. Austria, Germany and Switzerland add a special flair to the lake. This unique symbiosis of various cultures contributed a number of precious treasures of art. To mention only a few of them: Cultural heritage Island Reichenau, baroque style pilgrims church Birnau or the historic old town of Stein on Rhine. Add the marvellous countryside along the lake and a cycle path winding the way through idyllic meadows, along glittering water and in front of the stunning peaks of the Alps.

Itinerary

Make the most of your stay and visit flower island Mainau or stroll through the very well maintained old town of Constance. Here the Council of Constance met from 1414 to 1418 in the Munster and the Council House under presiding Emperor Sigismund. The objective of the council was a thorough reform of the roman-catholic church. Very interesting are also the aquariums of Seal Life Centre and the archaeological museum. Distribution of your rental bicycles (if booked). Overnight stay is in Constance.

On the southern shore of the Lake Untersee you cycle along the lake trough picturesque Swiss fishing villages to Stein am Rhein with its frescoed medieval houses. From there it is only a stone’s throw to the town of Gallingen.

Today you will circumnavigate the Höri peninsula, where Otto Dix and Herman Hesse once lived. You take a brake in the old imperial and present-day spa town Radolfszell. Afterwards you cross the Bodnarück and have to accept a very short gradient. The arrival at the Lake Überlingen See compensate with great views of the Swabian Sea.

You cycle through vineyards to Friedrichshafen. On the way you will pass the baroque pilgrimage church Birnau. In Meersburg you should visit the beautiful old town and the old castle. A visit of the Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen is worthwhile. Your journey continues to Kressbronn or to the island town of Lindau.

Cycling through large orchards you reach Bavarian Lindau, picturesque city on a peninsula. Next station is Bregenz. The capital of Austrian federal country Vorarlberg is renowned for the yearly summer festival on the biggest lake-stage worldwide. Afterwards you cross the delta of river Rhine, home of an important natural reserve. Overnight stay is in the region Höchst/Rorschach.

On your last day you visit Romanshorn, largest and most important Swiss port on Lake Constance. Along the lake you cross the apple-canton Thurgau. Tidy little half timbered villages line the way back to Constance. Today you should visit island Mainau, if you did not have the opportunity earlier. Return of rental bicycles and overnight in Constance.

Documents et gpx à recevoir avant le départ. Un bravo pour l'organisation en plein coronavirus.
Le voyage a été très bien, les hôtels conformes à notre attente et le transport des bagages sans faille. Mais nous aurions aimé recevoir tous les documents bien avant notre départ. Le dossier imprimé pourrait aussi être plus simple, car il comporte des pages qui ne concernent pas notre voyage. Un bravo pour l'organisation en plein coronavirus!

Très belle région côté Allemagne
Le début de semaine et la partie allemande du séjour étaient top. Le retour entre Bregenz et Staad (partie suisse) est décevante. Rarement au bord du lac, la piste cyclable côté Suisse se trouve souvent entre grandes routes/autoroutes et voies de chemin de fer. Le bord du lac est ultra bétonné ce qui n'est le cas ni en Autriche, ni en Allemagne, dont les villages et itinéraires cyclables sont superbes.

excellente organisation
Pour notre premier voyage en famille à vélos, nous ne sommes pas déçus : itinéraire magnifique et abordable aux enfants, excellents hôtels en catégorie A et service de transfert des bagages très fiable.

Schöne und abwechlungsreiche Rundfahrt mit dem Fahrrad
Die Rund tour um den Bodensee hat uns sehr gefallen. Sie ist nicht zu anstrengend und doch muss man immer weiter radeln um nach ca. 50 km am Ziel zu sein. In den grösseren Städten wie Schaffhausen hat man nicht so viel Zeit um sich umzuschauen. Vielleicht wäre ein Rad freier Tag gut. Besten Dank für die gute Organisation
