Cycle Lake Constance: 6 reasons why you should

6 reasons why Lake Constance is better experienced by bike

Cyclists-at-Lake-ConstanceAbove all else, cycling Lake Constance is a lot of fun! The Bodensee-Radweg cycle circuit around Lake Constance is the most popular cycling path in Europe and it’s not hard to see why. Known as the Bodensee in Germany, Lake Constance is Europe’s third largest freshwater lake. Bordering three countries and with a superb backdrop of the stunning Alps, riding doesn’t get much more inspirational than circumnavigating this intriguing shoreline. Here are 6 reasons why Lake Constance is best discovered by bike;
  • Cycle through 3 countries in 1 week: Tick off Germany, Switzerland and Austria, all without having to pull out your passport!
  • Most of the dedicated bike paths are flat: The gentle terrain (only a few small hills) makes the traffic-free paths ideal for families or first time cyclists.
  • Finding your way is easy: The dedicated bike path is extremely well way-marked, even the most directionally-challenged person should be able to self guided their way around it
  • Choose your own experiences: The freedom to stop for a picnic on the shores or even stop for a swim is up to you on a self guided trip around the lake.
  • Changing scenery: Enjoy vineyards and orchards, picturesque tiny German towns and the bustling medieval city of Constance, farmland, mountain vistas, the largest waterfall in Europe, and of course, the lake.
  • Indulge in guilt free local treats: When you cycle you can sample the delicious apple strudel or Swiss chocolate without feeling guilty - you’ll burn it off before you reach the next hotel!
A Lake Constance cycling trip should be on the bucket-list for anyone who enjoys exploring Europe in an active way. View more information on the Lake Constance Circuit plus other Lake Constance cycling itineraries.
