Lake Constance - "Swabian Sea" it is often called. Anyone who has experienced the lake and its unique charisma knows what we are talking about. The diversity of the landscape is unparalleled. 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" is captivating and not to forget the three islands in the lake - Lindau, Reichenau and the well-known flower island Mainau.
