Konstanz Overview

Konstanz (in English formerly known as Constance), a university town, is situated on Lake Constance (German: Bodensee) which is in the South-Western part of Baden-Wurttemberg and borders Switzerland.
The Rhine river, which starts in the Swiss Alps, passes through Lake Constance and leaves it again, considerably larger, by flowing under a bridge connecting the two parts of the city. North of the river lies the larger part of the city with residential areas, industrial estates, and the University of Konstanz; while south of the river is the charming old town which houses the administrative centre and shopping facilities in addition to the University of Applied Sciences (German: Fachhochschule).

There is a lively market as well as local chocolate shops in the rambling, well-preserved streets of Konstanz.
