Comfortable, safe and fast
All year round, 24 hours a day, the car ferry connects the cities of Constance and Meersburg, almost like a bridge. Passengers cross the lake comfortably, safely and above all quickly by car, camper van, bicycle or on foot.
Quick and easy
The ferry Constance-Meersburg is a piece of Lake Constance like the Säntis or Mainau island. Anyone who has ever taken the ferry from Meersburg to Constance on an early morning or a beautiful summer afternoon can confirm this: A ferry trip is like a short holiday and the most comfortable way to cross the lake. Short vacationers, who are with the own car or camper van on the way, come with the ferry fast over the lake and can explore the other lakeside. Upper Swabia is also only a stone's throw away.

The ferry not only takes you to the other side of the lake quickly and in a relaxed manner: the crossing is a real experience and can also be perfectly combined with a cycling excursion. As the ferry operates 365 days a year and around the clock, there is plenty of room for spontaneity. While enjoying a little refreshment from the bistro, you can enjoy the magnificent view of the Alpine chain. During a round trip on the Überlinger See, many sights await you: Meersburg with its idyllic old town and castle, vineyards, orchards that shape the landscape, or Überlingen with its beautiful riverside promenade. The flower island of Mainau is worth a visit at any time of the year. Also, a detour to the Untersee with Reichenau island, the world cultural heritage in Lake Constance, is a worthwhile experience.
Every day of the year the six ferries of the Stadtwerke Konstanz cross Lake Constance - every quarter of an hour during the day, every half hour in the evening and every hour at night. During the season, the captains even make six departures per hour. Every year, 4.2 million people and 1.5 million cars are transported between Constance and Meersburg. By the way, the ferry connection has existed since 1928.
The ferry company of Stadtwerke Konstanz has equipped its five large ferries with soot particle filters: Over 900 kilograms of soot particles are additionally filtered out of the exhaust air each year. For the voluntary retrofitting, the Bund für Umwelt und Naturschutz Deutschland e.V. (Association for the Environment and Nature Conservation in Germany) awarded the ferries an environmental badge. Irrespective of this, the Constance-Meersburg ferry connection also contributes to reducing emissions in other respects: Cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles would have to travel overland around the lake if the ferry connection did not exist. By crossing by ferry, over 80 million vehicle-kilometres are avoided every year. This saves several million litres of valuable fuel, relieves the environment and means less traffic pollution and noise for the region.
This destination is a member of the Verband der Tourismuswirtschaft Bodensee.
