Suggested excursions

Mainau Island, copyright A. Francke
There are countless possibilities for excursions around Lake Constance, including the flower paradise of Mainau Island and the spectacular natural phenomenon of the Rhine Falls at Schaffhausen.
Mainau Island
The popular "flower island" between Meersburg and Konstanz is a very special experience at any time of year. As well as the flowers, visitors can enjoy the butterfly house, palm house and temporary exhibitions.
The Pfänder (1064m) is a mountain just outside Bregenz on the Austrian side of the lake and is the region's best-known vantage point, offering fantastic views over Lake Constance and 240 Alpine peaks. At its foot is Lake Constance, framed by the Rhine Valley and the hills of Upper Swabia.
Rhine Falls near Schaffhausen
Unique natural spectacle and Europe's largest waterfall: 150 metres wide and 23 metres high. At the average flow of water through the Rhine, 700 cubic metres of water comes crashing over the rocks every second. The perfect destination for a day trip, especially when combined with a visit to the quaint old towns of Stein am Rhein and Schaffhausen.
