Worth seeing

Worth seeing while you're here, lots of culture and interest places. Better in fair weather. Not a rainy-day thing.

I have the chance to often walk around the old town in Konstanz and I think it is place great for sightseeing, shopping, eating out, having a drink or simply walking around.

Coming to Constance (Konstanz) over the Swiss border for a nice weekend, we found an evening walk in the old town extremely pleasant ... Many styles, mostly medieval, but with wider, airy streets and squares, as from the last 4 centuries... Lots of history, here, you can almost breath it, and lots of too-inviting pastry shops..

Konstanz is not a big city and you can through the town with all these old lanes. When it rains, you can always find nice, funny shops to pop in. The traditional architectures are amazing to visit, colorful walls and stylish roofs as well as some paintings on the wall...I'm sure you'll enjoy your day and welcome to get lost... More

It is well worth walking through Niederburg, even when the weather is mixed. It is highly recommended to do a guided tour as one will otherwise miss quite a few of the many details..

A variety of old typical buildings, fortunately not destroyed during the war so very original in style. A myriad of small streets to walk along to see what is round the next corner.

It's a long time ago, but Konstanz remains one of my favorite German towns, situated on the banks of lake Konstanz, with it's beautiful old town and pleasant lakeside restaurants, sure bto please the seasoned traveller

I only had a few hours to visit Constanz old town . I felt like being in a different era . So beautiful small walking roads and tidy buildings . So many small shops that they hide many things needed to be explored....
