City by the Lake
Set on the border with Switzerland and on the shores of the lake of the same name, Konstanz represents both a city of leisure and some of the country’s best education. Escaping the destruction of the Second World War due to confusion by the Allies as to whether or not it was actually a part of Switzerland, the city today retains its well-preserved medieval core. Twisting alleyways, ornate churches, and classic old-world houses line the streets, giving it the feeling of a city frozen in time. However, despite its archaic aura, Konstanz is home to one of Germany’s elite universities and, by extension, a center of research and scientific institutions. Thanks to its thriving student population and outdoor attractions, Konstanz deftly combines its scenic surroundings with active nightlife and an energetic urban culture. When using our Germany trip itinerary builder, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
