Beautifully planted shore with jetty on Lake Constance

Lake Constance for families

Around Lake Constance

8 Days / 7 Nights
Beautifully planted shore with jetty on Lake Constance

In contrast to our easy-going tour around Lake Constance, this tour includes admission to many children-friendly attractions so that there's no way they can get bored on the trip: You will be visiting Mainau Island, the lake dwellings in Uhldingen, the amusement park "Ravensburger Spieleland" and you will ride in the cablecar up to the top of Mount Pfänder in Bregenz!

Itinerary at a glance

At Lake Constance, you can enjoy not only many swimming opportunities but also the Sea Life Center in Konstanz, the Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen, and the Ravensburger Spieleland. In between, you can relax with ice cream and local wine.

Take the opportunity to wander through Constance’s old town or visit the aquariums in the Sea Life Center and go to the Archaeological Museum.

First you cycle to Wallhausen, from where the boat takes you to the other side of the lake to Überlingen. Always along the lake you go to the monastery church Birnau, where you can enjoy a great view of the lake. In Unteruhldingen you will visit the prehistoric pile dwellings. From Meersburg the car ferry brings you back to Constance.

From Constance, take the ferry to Meersburg. Visit the castle there and let yourself be carried away into the time of the Middle Ages. Continue not far from the shore of Lake Constance to Friedrichshafen. In the Zeppelin Museum, technology enthusiasts will get their money's worth and gain insights into the history of airship travel. From the Friedrichshafen lakeside promenade you can enjoy a beautiful view of the lake and the Alps

The cycle path to Ravensburger Spieleland is actually not very far but hilly. Therefore we recommend taking the bus from Friedrichshafen directly to the amusement park. One day there is nearly not enough, there is just so much to see, to try out, to build and to play!

When you haven't visitied the Zeppelin Museum so far, you should do that today! The way to Lindau goes by quickly, so you have more than enough time to check out the famous Zeppelin airships. Afterwards you cycle through Langenargen with its pretty Montfort Castle to the Bavarian town of Lindau, whose harbour is watched over by a 6-metre high lion.

You should take your first break in Bregenz: The cable car lifts you up to the top of Mount Pfänder above Bregenz and the Lake Constance area. On top you cannot only enjoy the view but also say hello or "Servus" like the Austrians to the animals at the petting zoo. Back on your bike you reach Höchst, where you soon cross the Swiss border, and reach Rorschach and a few kilometres further Arbon.

The last day of your tour takes you through Romanshorn which is home to Switzerland's largest harbour on Lake Constance. Now you continue on along the banks of Lake Constance back to Constance. You will frequently pass places where you can go swimming and refresh yourself in the lovely cool waters of the lake. Let your tour come to a pleasant end with a visit to the underwater world at the Sea-Life Centre in Constance.
