Cycle Lake Constance
Three countries in one tour
Panorama 1: Individual arrival in Constance/ Kreuzlingen
Take the opportunity to visit the island of Mainau, wander through Constance’s old town or visit the aquariums in the Sea Life Center and go to the Archaeological Museum.
Panorama 2: Constance – Gailingen / Stein am Rhein, approx. 40 / 30 km
First, you cycle along the southern Swiss shore of the Untersee and pass many villages, presenting themselves typical to this region. Finally you reach the little, pittoresque town of Stein am Rhein with its many frescoed houses.
Panorama 3: Gailingen / Stein am Rhein – Ludwigshafen / Überlingen/ Sipplingen, approx. 40 – 60 km
Today you circle the romantic peninsula Höri. The famous painter Otto Dix and the well-known author Hermann Hesse used to call this place their home. In the old imperial town on Radolfzell you take a little break before you cross the Bodanrück. A short steep incline is on your way to Überlingen, the only one all around Lake Constance.
Panorama 4: Überlingen – Kressbronn / Nonnenhorn, approx. 50 – 60 km
From Überlingen you cycle through vineyards to Friedrichshafen. On the way you will pass the Baroque pilgrimage church of Birnau. In Meersburg, take a break to wander around the old town and its castle. In Friedrichshafen we can recommend a visit to the Zeppelin museum. You continue on through extensive orchards to today's destination of Kressbronn. (We recommend staying on Lindau island 10km further if possible but there may be a surcharge for a hotel in Lindau. Please ask us for advise).
Panorama 5: Kressbronn – Höchst / Rorschach (or Lindau), approx. 40 / 50 km
On your way today, you soon reach Bregenz, the capital of the Vorarlberg region of Austria and famous for its annual festival on the largest lake-stage in the world. You finally reach Höchst where you soon cross the border again and then, after pedaling onwards for a few kilometres, reach Rorschach or Arbon.
Panorama 6: Höchst – Constance, approx. 60 km
The last day of your tour takes you through Romanshorn which is home to Switzerland's largest harbour on Lake Constance. Now you continue on along the banks of Lake Constance back to Constance. Let your tour come to a pleasant end with a wander through the old town or an ice cream down at the harbour.
