Konstanz – Culture and style between three countries

As the largest city on Lake Constance, Constance offers its visitors numerous leisure activities and medieval flair in addition to its magnificent lakeside location.

Its direct proximity to Austria, Liechtenstein and Switzerland makes Constance not only a popular holiday destination, but also an ideal starting point for excursions to neighbouring countries.

Constance is not only a modern university town, but also takes its visitors back to a time when the city was still a trading metropolis. You can experience a medieval atmosphere while strolling through the old town of Constance, as many historic buildings and alleys are well preserved. The Imperia statue at the harbour entrance to Constance is a popular photo motif and at the same time a landmark of the city. Opinions differ on this statue, which is only scantily clad. For those who do not want to do without a little luxury on holiday, the Steigenberger Inselhotel is the ideal domicile in the border triangle.

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.
