Haus am Bodensee /House at Lake of Constance in Southern Germany
We live in a semi-detached house near the lake of Constance. It's about five minutes walk to the lake ... We have kitchen and living room / dining room on the ground floor, bedroom, bathroom, dressing room and office on the first. There's an additional apartment under the roof with a double-bed (our children used to live there ) as well as a small kitchen and bathroom . We have a small but cosy garden as well as a patio and a balcony, which is accessible from the bedroom. In the house you will find everything you need ...
We live in a nice and pleasant region, close to Switzerland and Austria and to the Black Forrest (one hour by car). Constance is just across the lake, Meersburg about 5 km away. The region here is popular with tourists, mainly because of its landscape, the wineyards and the many opportunities for hobbies (swimming, sailing, cycling, hiking ...eating!). If you like walking and cycling, you will find a beautiful region here. The local beach ist free and open to all...
The lake of Constance is one of the favourite holiday regions in Germany - it borders to Austra, Switzerland and - of course - Germany. In summer, you will find many events to visit - from local festivities to famous festivals like the the one taking place on the lake stage in Bregenz or the music festivals on the Hohenthwiel in Singen.
If you like to visit cities: Stuttgart is about 2 hours away, Munich as well, Basel in Switzerland 2 hours and Zürich, Switzerland 1 1/2 --- by car. It's not far to the Alps, if you like mountains - Austrian and Swiss alps can be seen from here, if you want to go there, it will take you about 1 1/2 hours by car, depending on your destination.
But you can also find quiet and intimate places to enjoy nature - quite near.

Uhldingen is a village which has different parts - Unteruhldingen is directly on the shores of the lake and has a harbour and a beach. Famous is the museum with the stilt houses - it is unique in this region. Though a reconstruction, it gives an impression of the life in the stone- and bronze - age.
Uhldingen is between Überlingen an Meersburg and directly opposite Mainau island - famous for its baroque castle and the beautiful gardens.
In the north - about 50 kilometres - you reach the valley of the young Danube, which has engraved a marvellous valley into the landscape - canoeing, hiking and biking are popular sports there. Many famous baroque monasteries can be visited there.
In the direct vicinity, you will find the castle of Salem - famous for its college and its wine - and the castle of Heiligenberg.
Just across the lake you will find Constance: A busy but charming town with a modern and yet renowned university and a picturesque centre ...
