Lake Constance is a place of serene and tranquil beauty, and is an ideal holiday destination for those looking to enjoy a relaxing and peaceful getaway. Lake Constance is one of the biggest lakes in Central Europe, and is an ideal place to visit for those who enjoy spending time outdoors whilst on holiday. On the route of the River Rhine, Lake Constance is the home of many English speaking people, making it easy to communicate and interact with the locals.
The nearest airports to the lake are located within 2 hours drive, and once there, transport is easy and hassle-free via boat. There is a diverse range of Lake Constance holiday rentals in the area, and the boat rides that take you across the Bodensee are certainly the most enjoyable way to get around. The Bodensee and its shores are extremely beautiful and idyllic, as well as quiet and cultivated. The scenery in the area is not dramatic and spectacular, but if you are looking for dramatic, awe-inspiring natural scenes, the Alps are only a short drive away.
Lake Constance Apartments and visit the enchanting Flower Island with its parks, flower gardens and greenhouses
When staying in one of the Lake Constance villas around the lake itself, you can indulge in the luxury of lazing around on the banks whilst enjoying a spot of sunbathing or swimming, or you can get active and explore one of the many Lake Constance cycle routes that navigate the lakes shores. The biggest and most intriguing city in the area by far is Konstanz. Konstanz is a charming old city which is often reffered to as the jewel of the region. Due to Konstanz's many attractions, it is a great place to look for Lake Constance accommodation. Some of the best activities available in Konstanz include a magical boat ride on the lake, a trip to the Kunstanz experimental theatre, or the viewing of one of the numerous open air concerts and shows.
