The route from Kreuzlingen along the shores of the Bodensee to Romanshorn gives you a true holiday feeling. The entire stretch affords imposing views of and around the international fresh-water lake - the purest of natural experiences.
After a long look around the well-kept harbour and the exceptionally well laid-out park in Kreuzlingen, you begin your tour along the path alongside the Bodensee. The first impressions of this imposing lake will remain with us to the end of the tour. The view over the sparkling waters will take your breath away as you spot the German frontier on the far side of the lake.

En route, you enjoy the changing lanscape alongside the lake with natural vegetation, trees and dense shrubbery. A little later you're surprised by sparse sections of beach and isolated jetties. variety is provided by the short woodland sections that you cross as well as the section between Landschlacht and Güppingen, which leads past extensive fields.

The idyllic sights found along the entire route are further enhanced by pretty stilt houses rising out of the lake. The path also passes numerous lidos and romantic rest spots. The town of Romanshorn is the perfect place to end the tour with a final glance to bid farewell to the famous lake.
