Can I see Lake Constance from the train?

Hi friends,

I am planning to take a train from Chur to pass through Rorschach, then to St. Gallen and Zurich. My idea is to see Lake Constance along the train ride. Is this possible? I thought the train go pass the lake, at least from the map. Will I have a clear view of it? Appreciate your advice. Thanks.

The train only passes the lake only for a short section its best if you can break you journey at Rorschach and perhaps walk along the lake towards the town. Even better is to take a short boat trip on the lake. Another trip is to take the train to Heiden which is on the ridge of hills above the lake giving a good panorama, from here you can take the postbus to St Gallen.

Or you could make a side trip to Bregenz or Lindau - both on the lake, and both within an hour of Rorschach.
