The route leads you through picturesque fishing villages along the lower Lake to Stein am Rhein. Stroll through the alleys of the medieval small town and visit the Lindwurm museum. A visit to the Hohenklingen castle is also recommended, which is situated high above Stein am Rhein, thus offering a wonderful view of the Rhine. You now cycle to Gailingen, the pearl of the High Rhine.

3. Day: Stein am Rhein/Gailingen - Radolfzell/Bodman-Ludwigshafen (approx. 24-49 km)

Today you travel to the Höri peninsula, which protrudes in the lower Lake. In the midst of the old village centre of Gaienhofen, you will find the Hermann-Hesse-Haus as well as the Höri-Museum. From there, you travel to Radolfzell and to Möggingen am Mindelsee with its romantically situated moated castle. You then cycle to Bodman, a charming health resort with its castle park, a sight worth seeing.

4. Day: Radolfzell/Bodman-Ludwigshafen - Überlinger See/Friedrichshafen/surroundings (approx. 19-57 km)

Your route leads you through the picturesque village centre of Sipplingen to Überlingen.

The alpine upland of the Thurgau, which is mainly known for its fruit cultivation, is a part of the last day of your Lake Constance cycling tour. The lake shore invites one to relax and linger, before the route leads you through small towns with timbered houses back to Constance.
