Konstanz is a university town, the biggest on the Bodensee lake with its 80000 inhabitants. It is located in german territory, bordering Switzerland.
It's one of the few german towns which was left untouched during WWII. Yet, it is as clean and looking "new" as many other german towns which were actually bombed in those years.
Konstanz was my base location, from which I did a small trips around the Rhein river and the lake.

Kreuzlingen is a small town located right by Konstanz, on the Swiss side. I didn't visit the town itself, but I just had a walk by the lake shore.

Here are some photos taken during the boat trip from Konstanz to Stein Am Rhein on the Rhein river.

My final destination on the trip on the Rhein were the falls located near Schaffhausen in Switzerland. You might be surprised in knowing that they are actually the largest plain waterfalls in Europe.
Just on the top on the hill nearby, you can admire the Schloss Laufen (Laufen Castle), yesterday the residence of the Barons of Laufen, and today a prestigious restaurant.

Stein am Rhein is a small town along the Rhein in Switzerland, attracting a fair amount of tourists especially due to its pitoresque central square, and also the nice view of the buildings from the river.

The last day I visited the Mainau island, inside which there is a private area where many kinds of plants and flowers are cultivated and exposed, along with different species of butterflies.
I think it was probably the best season with the best weather for visiting that resort.
