Travel Tips for Konstanz

Across the Rhine

by queenminka

The Rhine bridge at the funnel of the Rhine. There is also a bridge only for bikes and people. It is a interesting excursion to make a whole-day-trip with the boat to the Rhine-falls in Schaffhausen.


by Kathrin_E

The garden island in the lake enjoys an almost subtropical climate. Exotic plants grow here, even bananas (these impressed me most when I visited as a child). The entire island is covered in the most beautiful gardens with old trees and flowers, flowers, flowers. The appearance of the gardens changes with the seasons. Additional attractions are exotic plants, palm trees and so on, in the glasshouses, the butterfly house, playgrounds for childrren, art and flower exhibitions...

The island belonged to the Teutonic Order until 1806, then became property of the Grandduke of Baden. By heritage it went to the related Swedish royal family in the early 20th century. The Counts Bernadotte who own and inhabit the island derive from a younger son of the Swedish king who resigned from his titles and functions, Count Lennart Bernadotte. His daughter, Countess Bettina, is now the 'boss' of the island after the death of both parents.

Tourism is the base of their economy. Active marketing is done to attract visitors. Every year new attractions are on display.

The baroque palace was begun in the 1730s. It is inhabited by the Bernadotte family and cannot be visited except a few rooms in the central wing that are used for exhibitions. The church next to the palace is open to visitors, though.

How to get there: either by cruise boat, or by bus. The bus stops next to the dam that connects the island with the mainland. If you arrive by car you also have to park there and walk over.

Statue of Imperia - Symbol of Konstanz

by Pakistaniguy

Statue of Imperia has the same importance for people of Constance as the statue of Liberty for New Yorkers !!! Just on the harbour, lies the statue of Imperia, A sculpture of a scantily clad, voluptuous woman. Imperia was allegedly a prostitute who plied her trade in the days of Council of Constance and was immoralised in a novel by ´Honore de Balzac´.

Constante "Triumphal Arch" or "Lenk Fountain"

by Gentleman75

Peter Lenk, the artist from Bodman, one of the best-known contemporary sculptors from the Lake Constance area, deals mainly with our society's mania for cars, but also with our leisure behaviour. The over 30 comical figures are unmistakeable caricatures of well-known and less-known personalities, symbolically bridging the gap between the past and the present.

The "Imperia" Harbour Statue is also Peter Lenk's work.

Traces of Ancient Beginnings in Münsterplatz

by Kathrin_E

Around 300 A.D. the Romans built a castle on the hill above the Rhine crossing, in the same location where the Münster church is now standing. They named it "Constantia". As recent excavations showed, the foundations of the Roman castle are still preserved underneath the pavement of Münster square. Most of the excavations have been covered again. Under the ground they are accessible with guided tours.

From the surface, a window opens into the underworld. The glass pyramid in Münster square allows a glimpse of the excavations.
