Travel Tips for Konstanz

Wine Festival

by german_eagle

I happened to be in Konstanz during the annual wine festival which takes place at Stephansplatz in the old town from Wed to Sat in the last week of July. It is an event not to be missed - totally non-touristy, down-to-earth (unlike you might think of a wine festival) and popular among all age groups.

I saw school kids (legal drinking age is 16 in Germany), twens and older couples, seniors, and everyone had a great time, yours truly included. They play live music to get people into 'the mood'. Mostly local/regional wine and sparkling wine is sold at countless stalls, food includes BBQ food, Spätzle, Schupfnudeln (a regional specialty), pizza, etc.

Prices are average, not exactly cheap, but who cares ...

Dancing in the streets in winter

by queenminka

The best part of the carneval is the so called "Schmotzige Donnerstag" (the thursday before carneval sunday and monday). At night, the population goes on the street, traditionally in long white nightdresses (also the men!) and everybody is dancing to the music of groups playing very weird, speedy, Samba-rhythmed version of popular songs. And also there are temperatures at about zero degrees Celsius, you get really sweated!

Minster church - interior

by german_eagle

My first impression upon entering the church was that of a very large but quite empty room. This goes back to the reformation - Zwingli was priest here from 1505 on and did a good job in throwing out many of the beautiful pieces. However, there's enough left that's worth to see.

Definitely walk along the side naves and have a look at the many chapels along them. Each is different and each is beautiful. The Welser chapel in the northwest corner is a masterpiece of Gothic art. The balcony on which the huge modern organ is placed was built in the Renaissance (1516 - 18) - note the delicate details.

A somewhat strange work of art is the so called "Schnegg", the hexagonal staircase in St. Thomas choir (north side). It combines elements of French late-Gothic constructions with the architecture of pulpits and steeples of the same era. It was created 1438. Quite beautiful is also the altar next to the Schnegg.

The main altar is from 1774, the pulpit is a work from St. Gallen, created 1780. Worth to see are also the stained glass windows that give a rather dark, mystic light to the interior despite the white colour of the walls and ceiling.

Island Reichenau

by mauro_pd

Visiting Reichenau; this small island is as known as "gemuse insel" or "vegetables island" due to the fact that lots of farmer lives there running agricultural activities.
It's part of the UNESCO heritage directory.

All pics within "Sundown" travelogue have been taken here.

What's this ?

by mauro_pd

Dont' ask me, please :-) I was just hanging around with my camera and a funny guy (let's say maybe beer helped him becoming so funny :-) clears this view to let me go for picturing ... I didn't dare to disappoint him and I took the pic. But without knowing what it is !!!
