Lake Constance - it is often called the "Swabian Sea". Anyone who has ever experienced the lake and its unique charisma knows what it is all about. The diversity of the landscape is second to none. On the one hand there is of course the international location in the border triangle of Austria, Switzerland and Germany, which gives the lake a special flair, on the other hand the historically grown "cultural landscape of Lake Constance" and not to forget the three islands in the lake - Lindau, Reichenau and the well-known flower island Mainau. The flat shore zones, surrounded by the foothills, which merge in the south and east into the mountain range of the Alps, and a magnificent panorama offer the visitor unique views! The many romantic places, surrounding vineyards and many fragrant flowers will make your holiday in the region "Swabian Sea" an unforgettable experience.
