Konstanz – Culture and style between three countries
The largest city on Lake Constance, Konstanz combines a magnificent lakeside setting with medieval style and numerous recreational activities.
Sandwiched between Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein and Switzerland, Konstanz is a popular vacation destination and a prime starting point for excursions to neighboring countries.
Konstanz is more than a modern college town; it will also transport you back to a time when the city was a bustling center of trade. With its countless well-preserved historic buildings and alleyways, you will feel immersed in a medieval atmosphere as you roam the historic district. A popular motif for photographers and the city's signature landmark, the Imperia statue stands proudly at the entrance of the harbor of Konstanz. Controversy has surrounded this scantily clad statue over the years. If you want to indulge in luxury on vacation, Hotel Steigenberger Inselhotel is the perfect place to stay on the lake straddling three countries.
