Culture around Lake Constance
Castles, palaces, monasteries and churches: steeped in history, all of them can be found in the Lake Constance region. The former Cistercian abbey of Salem Monastery and Castle and the Hohentwiel fortress ruins are some of the most impressive. Abbeys and churches have characterised the landscape around Lake Constance since the early Middle Ages. This has not only created a unique cultural landscape but has been the impetus for numerous innovations.
The allure and variety of the gardens in the former Carthusian Monastery delight every visitor. Herb, vegetable, hop and wine gardens can be explored with audio guidance leading on to four themed paths. More than 1,000 rose
trees and the most expansive historical rose collection in Switzerland turn the gardens into a delightful sea of flowers.
