The state-approved resort of Frickingen with its districts of Altheim and Leustetten - embedded in the lovely Salem Valley and the mountain ranges of central Linzgau - is only a few kilometres from Überlingen and the shores of Lake Constance.
Magnificent orchards, historic half-timbered houses, tranquil residential areas and an attractively designed town centre characterise the community. Holidaymakers will find here genuine hospitality and a piece of original lifestyle.
The community can be adorned with three small museums. In the Leustetten district, the Lohmühle mill from 1835 can be visited as a testimony to the old tanning trade. Volunteer managers like to put the mill wheel and the connected machines into operation for the visitors. In the Altheim district, it is worth visiting the Tüftlerwerkstatt-Museum, a mechanic's workshop which is driven by a water turbine more than 100 years old, from which various "tüftler" emerged.
The historic Petershauser Hof in Frickingen, built in 1591, now houses the Lake Constance Fruit Museum, which documents the history and significance of fruit growing on the lake in an interesting way. If you would like to find out more about fruit growing in practice, a tour of the fruit nature trail is recommended.
Restored half-timbered houses from the 16th century, the Martinskirche church in the centre of the village from the 15th century, the Weingartenkapelle chapel on the outskirts with unusual frescoes or a disused Art Nouveau railway station, which is now Europe's first holiday station and a popular holiday destination. On a hike along the Apfelrundweg you can experience the whole variety of this charming town.
In addition, guests can enjoy a wide range of cultural and sporting activities. And water rats will also get their money's worth in the natural adventure pool in Leustetten with jumping rock and children's adventure pool. After a varied day's holiday, the restaurants look forward to spoiling their guests with fresh produce from the region.
