Lake Constance lies in the heart of Europe. Many motorways lead here directly: The A81 and A96 in Germany, A14 in Austria, A1, A4, A7 and A13 in Switzerland. Caution: on the motorways in Austria and Switzerland a tax sticker (“Vignette”) is required. Lake Constance can be reached by direct connections from many cities: from Karlsruhe, Munich and Stuttgart in Germany. From Zurich, Basel and Innsbruck in Switzerland and Austria. Lots of long distance bus lines offer direct connections from numerous European cities to e.g. Constance, Friedrichshafen, Lindau, Bregenz and St. Gallen.
