Whether it’s windsurfing, sailing, swimming or diving, Lake Constance offers a whole host of options for water sports enthusiasts.
Visitors of all ages can create their own bespoke water sports programme in Constance, the largest town in the region where Germany borders Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Wallhausen, for example, boasts one of the best diving areas on Lake Constance. There are also pedalos, motorboats and sailing boats for hire, and plenty of windsurfing hotspots, while the local sailing schools offer beginner’s classes, sailing trips around the lake, and examinations for the Lake Constance boatmaster’s certificate.
