Today we start early, because we have chosen a longer tour and want to cycle in the morning. One of the good things about the Lake Constance tour is that we can always travel with the ferry. All the vouchers needed for this have been provided in the information brochure. The first thing on the schedule is the ferry ride from Konstanz to Meersburg, then we start cycling. We cycle along Lake Constance on beautiful paths through vineyards and the towns of Hagnau and Immenstaad to Friedrichshafen. On the way we see a zeppelin flying over Lake Constance again and again. In Friedrichshafen, of course, we have to visit the Zeppelin Museum so that we can take a look inside a zeppelin. After a little refreshment and a short walk along the promenade with a view of Friedrichshafen's Moleturm, we get back on the saddle and cycle through lush orchards and past colourful allotment gardens.
Again and again we come across photo opportunities, dreamy places to linger and inviting beer gardens to give us energy for the coming kilometres. With so many impressions, our sense of time has left us. Unfortunately, we didn't read our documents carefully enough and, when we arrive in Lindau, we realise that there is no time left to explore the town: We have missed the fast ferry and therefore embark on a three-hour boat trip at 6 pm. But this is not as bad as we thought, because we are surprised with so many views that we are very happy to accept the longer crossing. On the upper deck of the ship, with a light breeze, a beer and an Aperol spritz, we marvel at the Lindau lighthouse and Pulverturn, the beautiful places where we dock and the dreamlike sunset. A change of plans that puts the icing on the cake of our cycling day.
