    THE SWABIAN SEA

    "Reichsgewässer" without borders

    Until today, the borders between Germany, Switzerland and Austria within the third-largest lake of Mid-Europe remain unclear - and it works very well! A lot is organized together, e.g. the amount of sailing boats, the lake-navigation - and the cycle track near the lake. The Lake Constance cycle track is finished for 30 years now and counts as one of the most beautiful ones in Europe! The mild micro-climate with palms on the island "Mainau" or the cultural diversity is the reason for many (cycle-)tourists to choose this holiday destination. The lovely vineyards, the view to the Swiss mountains or the 75 km long view over the lake are unmatched. Additionally the cultural-historic sights, such as the abbey on the island "Reichenau" (UNESCO), Constance with its council-building, the castle-district, Münster and many more - or the Meersburg with the oldest inhabited German castle, "island-city" Lindau and so on. The largest waterfall of Europe, the Rhine Falls near Schaffhausen, shines uncomparable in the evening lights and shouldn't be missed at any Lake Constance-bike tour!

    CYCLE TRACK

    The cycle track leads you through lonesome natural heritage areas, past orchards and vineyards and through cultural-historic sights such as the abbey-island Reichena, a UNESCO-world heritage; to Constance, the city of councils, and to Meersburg with the oldest German castle. You shouldn't miss the unique flower-island Mainau.
