Überlingen Things to Do

  • Charming Town

    Border with Swiizerland with the Konstanz Lake, to have a look the houses, which they were build before the II World War. One day I will be back there.

  • Enjoy a Zoller-Hof beer and people watch

    I enjoyed by first German white beer here in Uberlingen - Zoller-Hof. I would rate it as one of the best I tasted on our Europe trip. Pretty good stuff.Anyway, don't know about you but it's a nice thing to do - sit down with a coldie and people watch for a bit. We Had a lovely lunch here and a couple of Zoller-Hofs.

  • Walk along the quaint tree lined streets

    Even though Uberlingen is obviously very busy on the weekend, you can still find a quiet little tree lined street to walk along and get away from the crouds.

  • Walk on boardwalk or picnic on the Lake

    Uberlingen is right on Lake Konstanz so when you visit you must go for a wander along the lake front boardwalk.There is plenty of shade too should you decide to take a picnic along. This seemed like a popular thing to do here with families enjoying lunch together on their Sunday off.

  • The Rider On The Bodensee

    The sculpture at the Seepromenade is a modern interpretation of an old legend: "Der Reiter über den Bodensee". According to this, one dark and icy cold winter night a rider had to deliver an important message concerning some war activities. He rode across the snowy plains at highest speed and had no idea where he was, all he saw in the darkness...

  • Promenade Along the Lake

    The lakeside promenade is a much busier meeting point in summer, with benches, street cafes and flowers - these photos were taken in early February. On clear days the Alps are visible beyond the lake. The Bodesee cruise ships to Mainau, Meersburg and other places around the lake depart from the landings.

  • Rathaus - Medieval Town Hall

    The lower, left part of the town hall with the painted facade dates back to the 14th century. The right wing was added 1490-1494. Since Überlingen had the legal status of a free imperial city till 1803, the facade to Münsterplatz bears the city's coat of arms, the red lion, with the black eagle of the Holy Roman Empire.

  • A Stroll Round Old Town

    The old town centre of Überlingen is small, nevertheless take your time and explore. Climb one of the narrow lanes and staircases uphill, no matter which. You'll find romantic spots and surprising views everywhere.

  • Mount of Olives chapel

    The gothic Mount of Olives chapel (1493) shows Jesus praying in Gethsemane the night before his capture.
