Live and work in the Fourcountryregion Bodensee

Life in the Fourcountryregion Bodensee

From the conference to a symphony concert, from a swim in the lake to a theatre premiere, after a climbing tour in the Alps to an opera gala – no problem in the Lake Constance region and, for many, nothing special. One grows accustomed to the quality of life in the region very quickly.

The region has much to offer: the World Heritage Sites of the Cloister of St. Gallen and the Island of Reichenau, 2 operas, 3 symphony orchestres, 6 theatres, castles, over 100 museums and several folk festivals e.g. the International Lake Constance Festival, the Bregenz Festival and the Schubertiade.

With its 572 km² water surface, Lake Constance invites you to bathe, sail, row, canoe or waterski, and provides a pleasant and mild climate year round. The picturesque landscape around the lake has a well-developed bicycle-/hiking path network and routes for inline skaters. Golf, tennis, canyoning, rafting or also paragliding and the Ravensburger Spieleland are additional activities popular in the region.
Trained cyclists need just about a day to travel the 273 kilometres around the shore of Lake Constance on their bikes – the most popular recreational means in the region. However, if your sportive ambitions are joined with interest in extraordinary nature sights and special cultural spots, then you should leave a little more time for detours.

The closely situated Alps top off the breathtaking panorama of the Fourcountryregion Bodensee and offer a wide variety of winter sports and Alpine hiking trails. If it is wellness you seek, you will find a number of thermal spas, renowned spa- and rehabilitation institutions, fitness clubs, and yoga-, qigong- and Nordic walking courses. As regards gastronomy, the Fourcountryregion Bodensee offers a diversity seldom found. Excellent restaurants, first-class wine straight from the wine grower, fresh fish from the lake or cheese from the close mountain regions – gourmets will feel at home in the Fourcountryregion Bodensee.
