    Lake views from konstanz

    by agathi Online Now Jul 16, 2015 at 5:57 AM

    What is the best part of the city to have good view of the lake? We will be arriving from the south and we would like to book a hotel at the part of the area which is more easy to access the lake on foot and get good views. Thank you.

    Lake Konstanz in the evening

    by agathi Online Now Jul 13, 2015 at 2:59 PM

    Hallo my friends. We will arrive by car in the lake after the Zugspitze ascending experience and a visit to the Neuschwanstein Castle. I don't know if it will still be day light or if we arrive after sunset. But anyway, my first question is where exactly in the area do you think we should book a hotel (bagdet) and secondly, if we have the time, what should we do just to get the feeling of the area. I have read about Lindau, Mainau and the Reihenau islands. And of course there is Konstanz. Actually, we will be two nuns and a priest and we are interested in sth that will give us the sense of the place (since time is so limited). We depart first thing in the morning.

    where to stay: Konstanz or Meersburg?

    by neycamargo Online Now Nov 8, 2012 at 3:25 PM

    Hi people,
    We will travel to Germany and we'd like to spend 2 days in Konstanz or Meersburg. We have a baby (1 year old). Where would you think is better to stay?
    Are there boat or ferry for cars in order to cross the lake? How long does it take you to go to Konstanz from Meersburg by boat?
    Which Hotel would you recommend we stay?
    We have found just one website talking about the Lake... but it was written in German, without translation for other language.
    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Ferry from Zeppeline Museum to Uferstrasse 40 Land Hotel near Dingelsdorf.

    if we are coming from Salzburg and overnight at the above is there a ferry across to Konstanz that will allow a look at the museum and still get us to the Hotel without too much trouble.
    or should we skip the museum To get there on time?
    We are heading to Strasbourg the next day. Okt 18th in Konstanz Okt 19th in Strasbourg.

    Or could you recommend a neat place to stay economically around the area for one night.

    Thank you ever so

  • Getting to Geneva

    by Stavrogin26 Online Now Aug 6, 2009 at 8:20 AM

    Hello All,

    I would like to travel from Konstanz to Geneva, and return. Does anyone know if this is possible by bus? Perhaps there's a bus from Kreuzlingen?

    The rail option appears to cost 200 euro for a return ticket (2nd class), so I'd like to avoid handing over such a large chunk of my life savings if at all possible. I understand that it's possible to get reduced train fares if one purchases a train card. Would this be the best option?

    Thanks for the help!

    Hi all!

    I just moved to Konstanz for the summer (until October) as I'm doing an internship just over the border in Bottighofen. I've only been here since the 1st June and most of my time has been spent working, so I don't really know my way about: does anyone have any recommendations for things to do or see, particularly in the evenings or weekend, since that's when I have time? As always, the cheaper the better, as I am a poor intern! All suggestions welcomes and thanks in advance!

So, when i get the ferrye froom meersburg, must i go by car in order to stroll around the cities(the points of interest are very far?), or can i take buses?( my prefeerence), or even can i do it by foot?

    by the way, crossing with car is too expensive?
