Newcomer

by Filmriss

Hi all!

I just moved to Konstanz for the summer (until October) as I'm doing an internship just over the border in Bottighofen. I've only been here since the 1st June and most of my time has been spent working, so I don't really know my way about: does anyone have any recommendations for things to do or see, particularly in the evenings or weekend, since that's when I have time? As always, the cheaper the better, as I am a poor intern! All suggestions welcomes and thanks in advance!

A visit of the tourist office in Konstanz will be certainly worthwhile. They will have brochures/leaflets for all kind of sights and events in Konstanz and area.

Let me add something to abalada's good recommendations:

From Konstanz it is only a stonethrow to some wonderful Swiss destinations in the vicinity of Bodensee (Lake Constance), especially Stein am Rhein and the Rhine Falls near Schaffhausen.

The most spectacular towns on the shores of the lake are Meersburg (just a short crossing by the vehicular ferry from Konstanz) and Lindau near the eastern end of the lake. Best you get on a cruise ship (not expensive at all) and hop on and off at some of the destinations.

Travel Tips for Konstanz

There are lots of pretty corners

by yumyum

to be discovered. I was surprised as before I only knew the town from changing from train to ship and that was it.

Good place to shop and hopp over the border. But keep in mind you are only allowed to bring back goods up to CHF 300 without paying duty. And on certain food there is a weight limit. And customs officials do want to know what you spent and see receipts in some cases.

Names of Houses

by Kathrin_E

Many old houses in Konstanz still bear their ancient names. In the middle ages and long after there were no addresses, street names or house numbers. To identify a house it needed a name.

The names are written on the facades, often together with the oldest known date. Most of these inscriptions are much younger than that. The style of writing betrays them.

Names were formed with zum or zur (“to the”). This style is still common everywhere in nowadays’ Germany to name pubs and inns. For private houses it is not in use any more, though.

DAY TRIP OPTIONS: Friedrichshafen Zeppelin Museum

by Kathrin_E

Friedrichshafen is the hometown of the Zeppelin. The former factory, interesting Bauhaus architecture in itself by the way, has been turned into a museum. If you are interested in technical stuff and how air travel worked 100 years ago, this is very worthwhile.

The town is not the prettiest highlight of the lake region. The walk along the lake promenade is pleasant, though. At the far end you can visit the former abbey with its baroque church. The two steeples with their "onion" roofs are a landmark in the skyline.

How to get there: Either by train or by cruise boat.

Take the Katamaran

by mauro_pd

Simply go to the harbour, get some tickets and fly over the water with the Katamaran ! We used it to land in Friedrichshafen, 45 minutes ride in complete relax and with a wonderful view over the lake.

Zoffingen Dominican Nunnery

by Kathrin_E

The modest convent buildings are easily overlooked despite their location at the entrance to Niederburg and the old town from the Rhine bridge. The convent of Dominican nuns is still active; a rare example of a nunnery that survived the secularization of the early 19th century and has been continuously inhabited to this very day. It was not closed down because the nuns ran a school for girls.

The little church is open to visitors only during very limited opening hours, thus it is a question of good luck to get in. The convent buildings are enclosure and cannot be entered. My boss and I once called for business reasons which involved the convent’s art treasures. Even we did not get any further than the door and the parlour, so forget about any notions to see the interior.
