The Bodensee (Lake Konstanz) is a slice of the Mediterranean in southern Germany

Welcome to the sunniest side of Germany, where the vineyards of the south facing slopes of Upper Swabia terrace down the the clear, cool waters of the Bodensee and views across the broad expanse of Lake Constance to the cut-glass peaks of the Swiss Alps on the far side and Austria to the east.

This is a place of relaxing ferry cruises and deep history, flower-bedecked islands and half-timbered villages.
