Cycling on Lake Constance
Enjoy the varied landscape by bike
Fantastischer Seeblick, herrliches Alpenpanorama, duftende Obstwiesen und gepflegte Weinberge locken Jahr für Jahr zahlreiche Urlauber an den Bodensee. Eine der schönsten Arten, die vielfältige Landschaft zu genießen, ist auf dem Fahrrad. Eine überwiegend flache Landschaft mit nur sanften Hügeln und mildes Klima eignen sich perfekt für die Reise auf zwei Rädern.
Explore the region on two wheels
Fantastic lake views, magnificent Alpine panoramas, fragrant orchards and cultivated vineyards attract numerous holidaymakers to Lake Constance year after year. One of the most beautiful ways to enjoy the varied landscape is by bicycle. A predominantly flat landscape with only gentle hills and a mild climate are perfect for travelling on two wheels.
There are countless cycling tours in the entire region - there is something for everyone. Whether with the family, relaxed on the E-Bike or sporty with the Mountainbike, a route is quickly found.
The Lake Constance Cycle Path
A classic is the Lake Constance cycle path (Bodenseeradweg), which runs for around 260 km around the whole of Lake Constance. Numerous sights, enchanting places and charming landscapes lie on the path that leads through Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The well-developed cycle path with only a slight incline is just as much fun for ambitious cyclists as it is for a family. Of course, shorter stages can also be covered - a well-developed network of public transport and overnight accommodations make it possible to plan the tour according to your own ideas. For example, day tours or bike tours can also give pleasure for 3 or 4 days.
On the way on the Danube-Lake Constance cycle path
Another cycle path for recreational cyclists is the Danube-Lake Constance cycle path, which leads from Ulm to Lake Constance for around 180 kilometres. It connects the Danube Cycle Route with the Lake Constance Cycle Route. The cyclist can reach either Kressbronn or Friedrichshafen via Biberach, Kißlegg and Wangen. There Lake Constance is waiting for the sporty cyclists - and you can either continue cycling or just relax at the lake!
Bike tours for the whole family
Shorter cycle tours, which are also great for families, can be found along the Swiss bank of the Rhine, on the Höri peninsula, the island of Reichenau, in Hegau or along the Argen river, which flows into Lake Constance at Langenargen. In addition to an exciting nature experience, numerous beach resorts, excursion destinations, guesthouses and restaurants along the way provide relaxation.
More challenging tours and mountain bike trails on Lake Constance
The terrain on Lake Constance near the Pfänder, in the Vorarlberg region or on the Swiss side of the lake is somewhat more challenging. The cycle paths do not run directly along the lake, but offer an impressive view and are the first choice for more ambitious cyclists. There are also numerous trails for mountain bikers, for example on the Argental Trail near Lindau, between Unteruhldingen, Überlingen and Constance or around Bregenz.
Bicycle rental and service
If you can't or don't want to travel with your own bike, there are many possibilities to rent one on the spot. Some accommodations have their own bicycles for rent, others point the way to the next rental in the village. Many hosts offer bicycle shelters right in front of the house. E-bikes can also be hired and recharged. Nothing stands in the way of a bike tour on Lake Constance!
