A stay in Stockach is especially interesting as a starting point because it is only a few kilometers from the north-west end of Lake Constance. By car, one can easily reach Switzerland from the Rhine source (Stein am Rhein, Schaffhausen) to Zurich and Germany from Lake Constance (Konstanz, Meersburg, Überlingen), southern Black Forest, the Swabian Alb to Stuttgart. See for example the book: The Western Region of Lake Constance - Pictures during the Year ISBN 978-3-938410-89-9.
