A lively cultural scene

Culture around Lake Constance

Painters, poets and pioneers have always felt at home on the shores of Lake Constance — art and architecture are part of its tradition. At the Bregenz Festival, operas become multi-coloured open-air spectacles; the Cultural Waterside in Friedrichshafen gives street artists a stage to perform. A number of UNESCO World Heritage sites, historic parks, first-class museums and music festivals from hip-hop to classical all add up to making Lake Constance an exciting destination. Culture tip for winter: Try out a traditional Alemannic costume during Carnival!
