The Escapio Hotel Description:

The 100 rooms and two suites of the Steigenberger Inselhotel offer guests a bright atmosphere and unobstructed views of Lake Constance. The old town of Konstanz is just a few metres away, across a small bridge. The rustic Domikanerstube, with hearty monastery cuisine, stands out among the restaurants. In addition, there are two bars as well as a charming summer terrace right on the water. The spa area includes a sauna, a steam bath and a fitness area.

Lakeside hotel: quiet location on a private island with a short walk to the Centre

The Steigenberger Inselhotel is located on an idyllic private island on Lake Constance. Vacationers can enjoy a romantic atmosphere with plenty of rest. Close to the accommodation, you can cross the hotel’s private beach to swim in the waters of Lake Constance. A small bridge leads to the old town of Konstanz. From the hotel terrace, guests have beautiful views of the largest lake in Germany. A cycling tour around Lake Constance allows guests to discover the charms of the surrounding area. The hotel offers free bicycle rental.

Historic hotel: Old Dominican monastery with traditional cuisine

In this romantic location, the hotel has carefully modernised the historic architecture. The Steigenberger Inselhotel is located in a former Dominican monastery, which has been expanded to provide luxury accommodation. You can feel the historical atmosphere, especially in the restaurant and the lobby. Columns and rustic wood panelling result in a time-honored setting. The wood-paneled Dominikanerstube restaurant is characterised by a cosy and rustic atmosphere. The menu offers the traditional cuisine of the monastery. The Zepellin Bar points to a more historical period of the house: it was once owned by the family of airship constructor Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin.

Eating and drinking: Two restaurants and two bars with historic cuisine

The Steigenberger Inselhotel’s Seerestaurant ("Lake Restaurant") is open every morning for breakfast and offers an extensive buffet for guests. Regional cuisine for lunch and dinner is also available. In the Dominikanerstube, guests can enjoy a rustic atmosphere. Hearty dishes of the monastery are served, which include classic roasts and fried trout. Guests who would prefer a coffee or a cocktail, can find elegant ambience in the SUSOS bar. The Café has a terrace. The Zeppelin bar is located in the former sacristy of the monastery kitchen and international drinks are served in the late afternoon. Offering elegant furnishings and good views of Lake Constance, the lake terrace offers guests light and regional dishes.

Sports & Recreation: Exclusive private beach for guests

On the hotel’s private beach guests can relax and enjoy the views of Lake Constance. The lake is ideal for sporting activities such as swimming, kitesurfing, surfing or sailing. Hotel guests don’t have to go far to find providers of these activities. Konstanz also has its own marina, from where you can start a round trip across the lake. In the hotel itself, the guests can use the sauna, steam bath and a fitness room with modern cardio and strength equipment. The attractions in the old town centre of Konstanz are only a few hundred metres away. Here, you can spend the afternoon in small cafés, or stroll through the picturesque old town.

Location: Close to beach location on private island with convenient access to the Centre

The Steigenberger Inselhotel is located on a private island on Lake Constance. A small bridge separates the property from the historic centre of Konstanz. In this way, guests can enjoy plenty of relaxation on the one hand, and on the other hand they are only a few steps away from the picturesque centre of Konstanz. The town’s railway station is also only a short walk away. Even Switzerland can easily be reached on foot.
