Short Upper Lake Cycle Tour

Fancy a weekend in the saddle, cycling? Or a short tour to try it out? Then come to Lake Constance and cycle round the main part of the lake, known as the Upper Lake. You will see beautiful towns such as Meersburg, Lindau or Bregenz along the way, while a boat trip gives you more of that lakeside feeling. Vineyards, orchards and the panorama of the Alps with the characteristic peak of the Säntis set the tone for this Upper Lake Cycle Tour. And it’s a good tour for people not so used to cycling.
