Travel days

1. Day: arrival - Constance

Individual arrival to the university city Constance. You have enough time to explore the city with its numerous sights worth seeing (council building, SEA LIFE centre and many more). You can either end the evening by dining in style in one of the many restaurants or with a beer in one of the lively pubs.

2. Day: Constance - region Stein am Rhein (approx. 47-57 km)

A trip over a poplar seamed dyke takes you to the island Reichenau. After that, you continue on to Radolfzell, where winding alleys with beautiful nobles and patrician houses can be admired. On small routes, you cycle around the peninsula Höri to Stein am Rhein. With its town gates and the colourful frescoes decorated houses, Stein am Rhein counts as one of the most well preserved medieval small cities in Switzerland. Pay a visit to the Lindwurm museum, before cycling to Gailingen, the pearl of the High Rhine.

3. Day: region Stein am Rhein - Constance (approx. 30-40 km)

Through picturesque fishermen's villages, you reach the city Ermatingen, where you should pay a visit to the Vinorama museum. The cycle path then leads you back to Constance. Enjoy the Mediterranean climate when taking a stroll through the winding alleys of the historic town. You can find the living Middle Ages at the Rosgartenmuseum, whose cafeteria in the inner courtyard invites you for a stay. 

4. Day: Constance - Überlinger See - Constance (approx. 25-61 km)

The first highlight of today is the flower island Mainau - an experience of nature in every season. Be delighted by the beauty and the silence of nature, before you continue cycling via Bodanrück to Bodman with its worth seeing castle grounds. You pass the monastery church of Birnau and cycle on to Uhldingen, which is best-known for its pile dwellings. In Meersburg, you can take the ferry (on one's own) to Constance. If you don't want to cycle the slightly hilly stage between Wallhausen and Bodman, we recommend taking the ferry from Wallhausen to Überlingen (on one's own). You shorten the route by approx. 25 km.

5. Day: Constance - departure

Individual departure from Constance.
