Short Lake Constance Cycle Tour
Day 1 Individual arrival in Constance/Kreuzlingen
You will begin your trip in Constance, the largest town on the Lake, which is still very medieval in character to this day. In 1414 it hosted the only Church Council to ever be held north of the Alps. A small museum plays tribute to the Czech Reformer Jan Hus, who was burnt at the stake here. The Swiss town of Kreuzlingen is located directly next to Constance. The harbour and lakeside area with its beautiful park are worth a visit here.
Overnight stay in Constance/Kreuzlingen
Day 2 Constance - Stein am Rhein - Radolfzell, approx. 55 km
Today´s tour will lead you from Constance through picturesque Swiss fishing villages. On the left bank of the Rhine you will reach Stein am Rhein with its medieval houses.
