By far, the best time to travel to the European continents is in the fall months. The best choice of which, is August. During this time, many of the European natives are faced with busy streets, crowded shops, and an almost overflowing social crowd due to increased tourism. So for the European natives that are seeking an escape from the hustle and bustle of tourism, there is lovely and peaceful Lake Constance.
When visiting Lake Constance, you are placed in the Bodensee. The Bodensee is the meeting point of three different villages, and all of these villages are in three different countries. The lake stretches out to touch the border of Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. They have a ferry boat here set up to take those who want to explore the area around all the borders. For those that are more easily made sea sick, they also have a car ride and a bike trail that you can take around the lake.
Lake Constance gives you a beautiful view of the surrounding area. As there are three completely different places to see, you may wonder where to start. You could begin along the German side of the lake. Very near to the lake are three places you would regret missing. There is Birnau Abbey, which is a Baroque church. The church has tall walls that proudly show over the water. This church is located in Meersburg, the town next to the lake.
In the Switzerland side, it has a more modernized town named Romanshorn. This town hosts attractions for those that are more interested in contemporary fun. They have things like mini golf, playgrounds, parks, and even swimming areas, for those that are concerned about swimming in the lake.
Last but certainly not least, on the Austrian side, you will find the town of Bregenz. Bregenz showcases some very unique and truly lovely architecture. The older towers of this town are made with a gothic style, and the more modern buildings are made in an interesting round shape.
It would be impossible to live in any of these places without being constantly distracted by the beauty of your surroundings. It truly is a great place to visit, if only just to see it.
