For more than 65 Years, it has been delighting tourists and locals alike – the „Seenachtsfest” (Lakeside Festival) as a part of the summer nights of Constance, which traditionally takes place on the second weekend of August in the city by Lake Constance.
Lakeside Festival for All Tastes
This summer, the cult festival is also expecting tens of thousands of visitors, who will be enchanted by jugglers, artists, gastronomy and handicrafts in front of the picturesque setting of Lake Constance.
You can expect partying, feasting and pleasures for all senses.
With six live stages, SWR3 and various DJs, countless food stalls, street performers and an extensive programme for children and families, the Lakeside Festival offers fascination for eyes, ears, palate and soul.
Discover the artisan market along the bay of Constance or simply relax in the almost Mediterranean atmosphere of Germany’s southernmost tip.
World Famous Fireworks at the Lakeside Festival
The highlight of the festivity is, as always, the musical fireworks display, one of the largest in Europe, which also this year will be designed by two-time pyrotechnics world champion Joachim Berner and his team.
For 30 Minutes, colourful pyrotechnics mix with the stars and will certainly live up to this year’s motto „Magic Moments.”
Of course, there are many places from where you can catch a glimpse of this event – a truly unique view will be offered to you from one of our rooms in the Gästehaus Centro, in the heart of the Old Town of Constance.
Promenade, harbour and urban park are just a three-minute walk away – so you are all to yourself and yet right in the middle of the event.
The onset of the unique spectacle will begin on the 9th of August at 15 o’clock, with the musical fireworks kicking off around 22:15.
By the way: in 1507, a first documented fireworks display took place in Constance.
Then, when more and more tourists found their way to Lake Constance in the middle of the 19th century, the so-called „Beleuchtungsabende” (Lighting Evenings) were created in this tradition, from which the Lakeside Festival was created after the 2nd World War.
Become a part of this tradition and visit the „Seenachtsfest” of Constance – the Gästehaus Centro offers you the right accommodation.
