Walk the cobbled streets of the old town & let your mind wander back centuries. Beautiful, clean & very well maintained old town. Stop for a coffee & just soak up the atmosphere or visit some or all of the many attractions including the museum & historic cathedral......

We stayed in central location to make strolling through old town easy and enjoyable. We even ate at a local favorite with the help of a waitress who could translate the menu so we could order local fare

It’s easy to just to walk around the old... More

The pedestrian precinct has a wide choice of reasonably priced shops and... More

It's a quintessential European old town with cobble stone roads and paths encaged by old buildings, some going back over 800 years. There are lots of restaurants dotted all over the place. Our favorite is Karma, which offers Indian, Thai and Malaysian cooking. It's similar to old towns all over Europe, albeit with a German touch, which is a complement.... More

Some lovely old buildings and mostly in very good condition make this a town worth walking around. It's not large and is easy to navigate.

Great town on the Bodensee. Very picturesque, and convenient to Switzerland, and the ferry ride is a must do to visit some great villages along the lake. Additionally, there is some good nightlife as well - so whether on the Swiss side or in Germany, enjoy!
