LAKE CONSTANCE, (the Bodensee in German), is one of my favorite places to day trip in Europe – reason being that it is central Europe’s third largest lake and situated directly next to the Alps,  so it has the stunning combination of land and sea that is often hard to come by. There are many beautiful cities to visit at the lake, but this time around Christoph and I took the train directly from Göppingen to Lindau, which is a Bavarian island located about four miles from the Austrian border. There you can take a 20-minute ferry to Bregenz, Austria; explore the lake with a rented paddle boat; or walk the cobbled streets of Lindau and become acquainted with the many antique shops, book stores, and truly charming houses!
