Travel days

1. Day: arrival - Constance

Take your time to visit the sights. Delve into a fascinating underwater world at the SEA LIFE centre.

2. Day: Constance - region Überlinger See (approx. 40-59 km)

The first highlight of today is the flower island Mainau - an experience of nature in every season. Your way leads you over the Bodanrück to the city Bodman with its worth seeing castle grounds. Along the Überlinger See (lake), you reach Überlingen with its watchable cathedral St. Nikolaus. If you don't want to cycle the hilly stage between Wallhausen and Bodman, we recommend to take the ferry from Wallhausen to Überlingen (on one's own).

3. Day: region Überlinger See - region Friedrichshafen (approx. 23-42 km)

The seaway takes you to Meersburg, one of the most beautiful towns around Lake Constance, and into the zeppelin city Friedrichshafen. You should absolutely pay a visit to the zeppelin museum. You continue to cycle through extensive wine and fruit cultivations and natural shorelands which invite you to relax.

4. Day: region Friedrichshafen - region Bregenz/Höchst (approx. 34-44 km)

Today, you reach the Lake Constance metropolis Lindau. Pay a visit to its historic city and the lighthouses with the Löwenmole, the landmark of Lindau. You then arrive at the cultural stronghold Bregenz. Stroll through the old town or ride up to the 1064 metre high Pfänder (mountain) with a cable car. Enjoy the unique view over the lake. Through the natural reserve of the Rhine delta, the largest freshwater delta in Europe, you reach Höchst.

5. Day: region Bregenz/Höchst - Constance (approx. 57-67 km)

Dreamlike views of the Lake Constance and the impressive Alps accompany you to Constance. Find the living Middle Ages at the Rosgartenmuseum. The cafeteria in the inner courtyard of the museum invites you to stay. You can shorten the route from Romanshorn to Constance by 21 km with a train ride (on one's own).

6. Day: Constance - region Stein am Rhein (approx. 44-57 km)

A trip over a poplar seamed dyke takes you to the island Reichenau. After that, the route leads you to the fishermen's village Radolfzell. The town enchants you with its charming atmosphere and a unique view of the Untersee lake. Via the peninsula Höri, you cycle on to Stein am Rhein. Stroll through the valleys of the medieval small town and pay a visit to the Lindwurm museum, before arriving at Gailingen, the pearl of the High Rhine.

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