Bodensee recs...

I want to Lake Constance before the summer is over.  I've heard of this boat tour where you eat different meals in different countries around the lake.  I'd like to do something like down to somewhere along the lake in Germany and leave the car there.  But be able to see the sights along the lake by boat.  Has anyone been there?  Any hotel recs?  Has anyone done something like this or gone on a boat tour there?  Any help is appreciated.  I'm not finding much in English, but I have written to two tourist places for info.  TIA!

Re: Bodensee recs...

  • I don't know about the boat tour, although I am sure you can get one. There are plenty of boats and companies that run out of Lindau. 

    I've been several times - it's a beautiful little place. I don't have major tips as far as hotels or companies are concerned, but I would recommend one stop.

    On your way down I would recommend visiting Affenberg Salem where you can feed endangered monkeys. It's so much fun and the pictures are fantastic. You basically go into this huge sanctuary that is completely outdoors (they do have fencing, but it blends well) and they give you special popcorn to feed monkeys. 

    They also have storks and some deer. 

    The entire Bodensee area is filled with orchards and it's a great drive. Salem is a bit out of the way (you will probably pass the huge boarding school that a lot of royalty sends their kids to). 

    Have a great time!  


  • No recs - but I would love to read about what you end up doing.  I hope that it's a great trip.

    M2M - I so want to feed the monkeys, we are definitely doing that at some point!
