The views across the wintry lake and the Alps are a balm for the soul that can be enjoyed from the amazing 360° panoramic bar aboard the Christmas ship, for example. With around 160 stallholders and artisans, the region’s largest Christmas market is perfect for a stroll from the old quarter to the harbour and promises a myriad of gift ideas (more than 10,000 in total!) as well as delicious aromas. The reflections of the 100,000 lights on the lake and the majestic backdrop of the Council of Constance building create a magical ambience.
