Lake Constance, Bregenz & Lindau
In 1.5 hours to Lake Constance
Situated in the northern Alpine foothills, Lake Constance actually consists of three bodies of water: the Obersee lake, the Untersee lake and a part of the Rhine River, the Seerhein. These two lakes and the connecting river are located in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Sights in the Lake Constance Region
The great infrastructure for tourism, as well as a well-connected network of attractions, sights and excursion destinations, is crucial for this area. Important sights in this area include: the cities of Constance, Ueberlingen, Meersburg, Friedrichshafen and Lindau; the Rhine Falls near the town of Schaffhausen; Mainau island; Bregenz and its one-of-a-kind Seebuehne stage; Reichenau island with its UNESCO World Heritage Site; and the prehistoric pile dwellings in Unteruhldingen.
The Bregenz Festival and other festivals which take place on the lake are especially famous: every summer, an opera (musicals and operettas as well, but less frequently) is held on a firmly fixed stage on the shores of Lake Constance. The gigantic Seebuehne stage is the largest open-air festival stage in the world.
