Lovely tranquil corner

A little world of its own with villages, farms and historic churches. Lots of people cycling around but we were driving.

Reichenau is famous for its gorgeous monastic architecture and for growing fruit and veg in huge greenhouses and on fields. The lake around acts like a massive climate regulator. Arriving on the island via a causeway, lined by trees and marshland grasses, you reach a small, intimate world, where time seems to slow down. Certainly the beautiful spring weather -... More

Rented a bike from my hotel (Steigenberger Inselhotel in Konstanz) to come here. The journey is approximately 8 km one way from the Konstanz city centre, of which the ride across the causeway connecting the island to the mainland is 3km. It is a very well marked cycling path. The path follows or is very close to the train tracks... More

On our recent brief stay in Meersburg, amongst the places that we had made a note to visit was the island of Reichenau. Easy to find but unfortunately just as easy to forget. An island that, perhaps because of it's monastic past, appears to grow every vegetable in Germany thanks to it's micro-climate. We have never seen so many shapes... More

In the early morning I rented a bicycle near my hotel in Konstanz, Germany and spent the best part of the day leisurely biking around the Monastic island of Reichanau. The monastery churches and buildings constructed from the 9th to the 11th century were most interesting to see and I was, by chance as I arrived on bicycle, able to... More

This island was both beautiful and eery. We went there on a very gray and cloudy day in autumn. There was intermittent rain and mist. The monasteries were beautiful as were the homes and gardens...however...there were no other people other than ourselves! We even stopped in at the visitor center, and there was no one there. We went on our... More

My destination was the Monastic Island of Reichenau, included in the list of Unesco sites. The reason why the site was appointed to the list was the following one: "The churches on the island of Reichenau retain remarkable elements of several stages of construction and thus offer outstanding examples of monastic architecture in Central Europe from the 9th to the...

The best way to see this is probably to go by bike - the island is charming and there's flowers everywhere. There are three different churches - and you should really see all of them. Don't miss the museums if you're interested in history. There's a small fee to get into the treasury of the largest church - just 2... More
