Lake Constance (Bodensee) is one of the largest lakes in Central Europe. It is shared by three countries: Switzerland, Austria, and Germany.

The lake offers diverse activities, including hiking and biking trails, kayaking, and boat tours on the lake.

There are eleven islands on the lake, of which Reichenau, in the northern part of the lake, is the biggest and most historically significant.

Reichenau island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for the archeological remains of churches and monasteries that have been built over many centuries.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
