There's plenty to see and do in Konstanzz. Firstly there's the lake, and then there's the town. Very picturesque. Quiet away from the tourists. Plenty of shops and places to eat. Nice place to visit.

The old town is nice and pretty, some of the buildings have colorful paintings on them. But, it is nothing special and the main attraction in Konstanz is the lake, which you can't see from the old town.

Very fine stores, restaurants and ice cream bars. On highest points you can see beautiful lake. Small but worth to go there for few hours and seat in restaurant by lake.

The old town is closed to cars so people can walk the streets. The buildings are typical German (so nothing unique). All I saw were shops selling stuff and places to eat; in effect, an outdoor mall. Not what I was looking for, so did...More

Nostalgic and relaxed quarter of Konstanz. Tourists most stay close to the water and harbor. So here you can still feel relaxed having a glass of wine without being only treated like one out of thousand tourists pasding by each day.

Didnt expect that in a town known to be a harbour but altstadt is magnificent with many shops and very close to the lake and bus station.
