Mark village is very close to Lake Constance and has a brilliant view of the Alps. Since Mark is a town with 17,000 inhabitants, you can in the many shops and supermarkets shopping. When you book a vacation rental on Lake Constance, the price is double. Mark village is situated 9 km away from Lake Constance. You can also generate an e-bike (bicycle with motor) for rent and ride the most beautiful bike paths. You see sights not only, but also details of Germany. Just as we live here. www: www.markdorf.de www.gehrenberg-bodensee.de

Mark village lies at the foot of Mitre's (lookout tower), has a very good infrastructure. However, Mark's village to Lake Constance already good 20-30 minutes. Furthermore, there are good dining facilities such as the Bishop's Castle, Tavern on Gehrenberg (with culture stage), lamb (all newly remodeled), etc. Parking is free throughout Mark village.

Markforf is only a small village, a village that has no special attractions. While walking we saw within 1/2 hour everything. More interesting is Meersburg - a place about 10 miles away right at Bodense. A very old place with a mittelaltlichen castle, a beautiful waterfront and many local with a Mediterranean flair.
