Cycling tours around Lake Constance

From 24 to 29 May 2022, we were invited by our children to stay at Lake Constance. In our luggage we had our bicycles with fully packed panniers.

Five nights in the ABC Hotel Konstanz were on the programme. The ABC Hotel is a 3-star hotel in the Petershausen-West district, about 300 metres from the railway station. The city centre of Constance, 2 km away, was within easy walking distance. It was only a few minutes by bike.
The rooms had standard amenities with excellent working wifi. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast room served a breakfast worthy of the hotel stars.

There was a locked room for the bicycles. However, if you arrived late, you had to leave your bike outside at the hotel entrance. The area was under video surveillance.

Arrival (32 km, 20 miles)

Take the S-Bahn to Stuttgart main station. By IC …. to Singen. Our bicycle reservation was issued for 25 May – What a faux-pas – We were lucky, the reservation of our carriage was not taken. Otherwise we would have had to cycle to Singen. Normally, nothing works on this route without a reservation.

After a comfortable train ride we arrived in Singen. Since the weather was stable and beautiful, we decided to take the Rag to Konstanz. Along the Überlinger See we reached the station Petershausen West. It was still about 300 m, 984 feet to the ABC Hotel
