Bordered by three countries - Germany, Switzerland and Austria - is Europe's third largest lake, Lake Constance. Thanks to its mainly flat terrain the cycle path around Lake Constance is ideal for more leisurely cycling making it an ideal route for families. If your interest however is in clocking up the kilometres and having a good ride out with the opportunity to visit three countries in three days, this trip is hard to look past. Formed by the Rhine Glacier during the Ice Age, Lake Constance consists of three bodies of water: the Obersee (Upper Lake), the Untersee (Lower Lake), and a connecting stretch of the Rhine called the Seerhein. On this circular cycle around the lake you will visit the medieval towns of Constance, Stein, Meersburg and Lindau all while enjoying the amazing landscape of the lake against the stunning backdrop of the glorious Alps. During the ride you have time to soak up the atmosphere in the picturesque towns lining the lakes shore with opportunities to swim and kayak during the warmer months.
