The old city is very beautiful with dozens of Cafés and restaurants. As this city did not suffer the effects of the WWII as other cities of Baden-Württemberg, most of the buildings still have the same façade (pre world wars). Enjoy the end of the day drinking a cappuccino in one of the charming Cafés you can find here.

Just to clarify this for travelers, as it is misleading in the title: The "Niederburg" is just a small part of the old town. But it is the oldEST part of Old Constance - some buildings date back to the 12th century - and the most beautiful part. And as such it is most interesting for those who like to... More

Can get busy during the day but stroll round the old town in the evening and you'll see it in a different light. Nice bars and restaurants. Beautiful buildings and narrow streets. Take you time and enjoy it.

Small shops with great items. It is amazing how old some of the buildings are dating back to 1300 and 1400 hundreds. Many cafes outside to enjoy a bite to eat.

We picked up an itour audio guide from the tourist information center near the railway station for 7.50 euros. The English is a bit patchy and the tone a slightly laboured butth is was a great guide for the old town with everything you need to know. The town and harbour is very pretty with some very interesting history. The... More

This is one of the most attractive smaller towns that we have ever visited. I reckon that, if the winters were not so cold and I would have to learn a good deal more German, it would be an excellent place to live in retirement.

Each time I visit my daughter and family in Germany, we make the one hour trip to Constance. This cosmopolitan town has ancient buildings, great restaurants, super ice cream, beautiful vistas, and friendly people. We particularly love visiting the old town. The old charming buildings have such a long history. Some date back to the 1300's, which for a Californians... More

We came to Constanz to enjoy walking around the old town and were not disappointed. Its nice to see a modern working city with it heritage so well looked after. It's not a twee theme park. No great knockout sights but lots of lovely street views and old buildings.
