nice old town. but avoid arriving (at least by car) during shopping rush hour. Visit whilest waking over from Switzerland or during "slow" times.

A lovely day trip from Zurich by train to the literal edge of Germany. If you walk out of Old town toward the east, you basically walk back into Switzerland. Lots of Swiss here to shop and enjoy the festivities.

They did a good job in preserving the character of the old buildings, and you see the typical care for details. It is a nice walk to go through the old town. Would advice to go on a Saturday or when the shops are open as on Sundays it feels deserted.

We arrived here about 11:00 hours on a weekday so most of the stores and all the restaurants were closed. So we just wandered around enjoying the nice weather and seeing an old German city. One of the party had not been to Europe before so she was constantly pointing out things that were different from back home in Seattle.... More

Had a couple of hours to spare and wandered around the old town. It is pleasant enough with some interesting old buildings and the area is very pedestrian friendly. Also after having spent several days in Switzerland, it was nice to be in a much more 'affordable' country. Its not overly exciting but nice enough to spend a couple of... More

Shopping in the city and brousing throught the many small shops is always a nice outing. You can find many small cafes to stop and have a drink. Many of them have a cosy and nice atmosphere. The architecture and old houses in the city are beautiful and you will enjoy the charme of the city.

The old town in Konstanz, Germany is a real find. Perhaps hard to get to if you are travelling by bike, like we were. There is a lot of construction going on and the bike paths are not so well indicated sometimes. The proximity to the lake, the quaintness of the old town are magical.

We visited the old town today. It had a lot of shopping areas and was full of people because of the nice weather. A nice place to visit.
