Itinerary

You start your tour in Constance, Lake Constance’s biggest town. 600 years ago this was where the Council of Constance took place, the only council to elect a pope that was held north of the Alps. The Rhine leaves Lake Constance here: 0 kilometres on its way to the North Sea. Only a few minutes by foot from the medieval town centre is the Swiss town of Kreuzlingen with its lively harbour.

First you cycle to Wallhausen, where a boat takes you to the old Imperial town of Überlingen. Visit the gothic church and go for a walk along the popular lakeside promenade. From there, you cycle through vineyards to Friedrichshafen, where we can recommend visiting the Zeppelin Museum.

Today you will start out cycling through Langenargen, where you can admire the inspiration for the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. You will then cycle through extensive orchards on your way to Lindau, whose protected old town is located on an island. After a few kilometres you will find yourself on Austrian soil and will cycle directly along the lakeshore to the city of Bregenz with its unique lakeshore theatre stage.

Wander through the town of Bregenz and enjoy its beautifully preserved upper town. Once you arrive in Hard, you cross the Rhine, which flows in from the Swiss Alps. Now you are on Swiss ground, in Altenrhein, and you will see the Hundertwasser hall, the last colorful building made by the famous artist. You cycle along the banks of the lake to the old harbour town of Rorschach.

The last day of your cycling tour Lake Constance, the Cycle Path is devoted to the Canton of Thurgau, which is endearingly known as (Cider India) because of its huge apple orchards and slightly remote location, at least from the Swiss perspective. The route takes you along the banks of the lake. If you like you can stay an extra night in Rorschach and combine this with a trip to the Appenzeller Land.

After breakfast, you start your individual return journey home or extend your stay.
