More details

Ludwigshafen on Lake Constance is a picturesque town whose beaches and marinas can soothe your soul. Deep blue water will give you the thrilling feel that cannot be found anywhere.

When you just leave Überlingen, the pilgrimage church Birnau on historical grounds should be a stop before pedaling to Meersburg. After that, give yourself a break at Pile Dwelling Museum (Pfahlbauten Unteruhldingen), which presents archaeological finds and replicas of post-villages from the Stone and Bronze Ages.

A detour to Meersburg cannot be completed without an ice cream on the beach and a visit to the ancient town as well as waterfront cafes.
