At the point where Germany, Austria, and Switzerland meet, discover a not-oft-found confluence of culture, cuisine, and landscapes. A particularly beautiful part of the world, the three borders come together in the form of a delta, which comprises the third-largest freshwater lake in Central and Western Europe. The shores are lined with quaint old towns, lavish resorts, and extensive biking trails. Choose a family hotel for some much-needed time with the ones you love, a country-house hotel for a stay with a historic flair, or a lake hotel, to get the absolute most out of your time at Lake Constance.

Good to know
Getting there: Lake Constance is served by one airport, Friedrichshafen in Germany. Once there, opt for the Bodensee Ticket, which allows public transport via bus, train, and ferry in all three countries that border the lake. A train ride around the lake is an event in and of itself, so it’s worth taking one if even just for the views. Renting a car really isn’t necessary in the region, but if you do, you’ll naturally have more uninterrupted access to the lake’s hinterland and vineyards.
When to go: A worthwhile visit in all seasons, deciding when to book a stay on Lake Constance is really just about your traveling preferences. Active vacationers should head between April and late autumn. Water sport-enthusiasts can start their season in spring but should remember their wet suit, as the water has a maximum of only 10 degrees C. In the summer months, when temperatures rise up to 25, the water can get up to 22 near the shore. In winter, ski slopes attract visitors to Lindau in Germany or Voarlberg in Austria. The in-between seasons are, as always, best for hiking and taking in the evolving foliage.
