View on Radolfzell at Lake Constance

The Untersee is home to a stretch of largely unspoilt nature - swathes of reedy marshland, forests boasting a wide range of species, natural lakes and colourful wildflower meadows. At the heart of this unique landscape lies the officially recognised health resort of Radolfzell. With an idyllic old town, the longest stretch of lake shore and outstanding transport connections, the third-largest town on Lake Constance stands for nature, the environment, health and a true experience.
