Dear Guest, I recommend you take a vacation in Langenargen, because you should definitely visit the castle there. The romantic ambience, especially on a beautiful summer evening, has already inspired many painters. If you climb the castle tower, you have a beautiful view! In addition, Langenargen has a beautiful natural beach, the Malerecke, where you can pursue water sports extensively. You should also visit the museum in Langenargen. This is a gem and consistently has highly interesting guest exhibitions. Insider tips? Langenargen and, in particular, the Lake Constance region is shaped by the plethora of possibilities for leisure activities (water sports, Ravensburger Playland ((children and adults)), climbing parks), cultural events, such as the Bregenz Festival, and the home-made cuisine. All of these experiences create an unforgettable holiday. And as we'll say at Lake Constance: "After a holiday in Langenargen, it is time for the next holiday in Langenargen!"

Langenargen is a small city. In fact, it is not a city but also not a village any more. This is precisely what the tourists like. Our Montfort Castle extends into Lake Constance, and the town is a gem with great food, tango dance evenings, and especially the Langenargener castle summer concerts with outstanding musicians. The place name includes "Argen" because the town lies on the river Argen. Its source is in the Allgäu, and it flows into the lake near us. You can take wonderful walks or jog along both river banks. The historic suspension bridge is very well known - and this is in Langenargen. The location so close (20 km away) to Austria-Bregenz, and across the lake to Switzerland with the Santis, this is an ideal starting point for endless tours, excursions, hiking, and cycling. I have guests who have been coming for 35 years, and they still find something new to discover. On the 2nd weekend of the summer holidays, our famous Embankment Festival lasts four days - with fireworks on Saturday, and a fairground and food mile along the entire waterfront. There are many reasons to visit Langenargen.

Yes, Langenargen has the Malereck, the most beautiful beach on Lake Constance. Otherwise rather for old people. For the young people, there is a lot of wind and an incredible amount of sports activities. And of course the brilliant mountain view. That is all. Have fun at Lake Constance

"We have only 4 days in Langenargen. What should we see/do without fail?" (posted 08/12/2015)

From the request does not indicate what time the guests were coming. Of course, it also comes always something on the weather. Right now we have a real heat wave are already four weeks - because of course it attracts all the guests on or in the lake. We have with it guestcard 3 beach resorts to free choice. Langenargen, Eriskirch and Kreßbronn. Who in Langenargen available has only 4 days I would definitely recommend a boat trip - perhaps along the shore to Lindau Island. In Lindau you can wonderful half a day to look at the island, nice dinner or coffee and with a later ship or train back to Langenargen. The Dornie Museum in Friedrichshafen-right at the airport, would be extremely interesting for a rainy day. Ravensburg is about 20 km away and is a popular shopping town - and Friedrichshafen suitable for strolling and shopping. Bregenz in Austria with the pledges is a popular destination. Per pledges gondola takes you up high above the city. A magnificent view of Bregenz and Lake Constance, there to enjoy from there. Adlerwarte and a vivarium with mountain animals can be seen up and also you can make beautiful mountain hikes. Langenargen in the other direction Meersburg, Überlingen Uhldingen and is (stilt houses) Birnau a worthwhile goal. Langenargen itself is a tranquil and well over clam ulicher place with a beautiful promenade, the Moorish Montfort Castle, the beautiful baroque St. Martin church and the museum might one day a program. On Tuesday is always welcome guests with a guided site visit. The island of Mainau is charming in every season and in fact almost a must! That would be a few points - depending on which interests the guest - of course you can wander inexhaustible or ride a bike - Who has a thicker wallet, maybe could use a 30 to 60 minute Zeppelin flight over Lake Constance do if the weather makes with.

That depends on the weather. Weather permitting: - boat trip on the Lake Constance - trip to the flower island of Mainau and the stilt houses (UNESCO) - Visiting the Bregenz Festival - ride on the cable car to the Säntis - flight with the Zeppelin case of bad weather: - visit a thermal bath directly on Lake Constance (eg in Meersburg or Überlingen) - numerous museums (Zeppelin Museum Friedrichshafen, Rolls Royce Museum in Dornbirn) - visit the casino in Bregenz (not in something closer Lindau - which is in Bregenz much bigger and more beautiful!)
