Constance is the largest town on the lake and is perfectly situated to explore this beautiful region, just where the river Rhine meets the lake. The town has a fascinating history and a beautiful frescoed traffic-free old town with cobbled streets, brimming with shops, cafés and wine cellars. Visit the historic gothic-style Münster cathedral, the historic 'Konzilgebäude', or take and evening stroll along the lakeside and harbour, watched over by the famous 'Imperia' statue. The Lake Festival is due to take place here on 10th August with a spectacular firework display.
