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.

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.

The old town is quite small so it really doesn't take that long. You'd have to stretch it out to make it last half a day.

It was a quiet weekend day that we walked through, so many of the shops were closed, but there were still cafes open. Lots of people walking and browsing, and taking in history. Its beautiful!
