Pla­ces lis­ted from 1 – 5 are loca­ted in Con­stance and points 6 – 10 you can dis­co­ver in the resi­du­al regi­on of Lake Con­stance. The maps were inser­ted in the text, so you can find out the exact loca­ti­on of the men­tio­ned pla­ces. In addi­ti­on to the beau­ti­ful wea­ther, enjoy the pure joy of your child­ren and the time spent tog­e­ther as a fami­ly. Have fun – Viel Spaß!

1. Main­au Island

Main­au Island deser­ves undoub­ted­ly the first place on this list. Main­au is par­ti­cu­lar­ly per­fect for fami­ly outings. While you mar­vel the out­stan­ding plant and ani­mal life on the island, your child­ren are play­ing in one of the many attrac­tions. You can easi­ly spend the who­le day on this popu­lar flower island.

Next I have cited a few lines direct­ly from the web­site of Mainau:

A visit to the second lar­gest but­ter­fly house in Ger­ma­ny is cer­tain­ly one of the high­lights of a Main­au day out.

Main­au Children’s Land is a play­ground para­di­se for child­ren. “Water World” in the Main­au Children’s Land is a play area repro­duc­tion of the Lake Con­stance regi­on in the olden days. “Blumi’s Lakesi­de World” is a the­me play­ground for inqui­si­ti­ve 3 to 6 year olds. The authen­tic lakesi­de land­s­cape with drift­wood, clim­bing nets, balan­cing beams and a beaver’s lodge is a play and hide para­di­se for children.”

Plan your visit here.

2. Strand­bad Horn – Open Air Swim­ming Pool Horn

The „Hörn­le”, as it is cal­led by the locals, is loca­ted at the end of the Bay of Con­stance near the Boden­see­sta­di­on, and offers a fan­tastic view of Upper Lake Con­stance (the Ober­see) and Lake Über­lin­gen. In the sum­mer, its sun­bat­hing area of 50 000 squa­re metres and 600 metres of shore­li­ne make it the lar­gest open air swim­ming pool by Lake Con­stance, which is a popu­lar mee­ting place for all ages.

In the area of Horn you can find:

-a fami­ly area with a children’s pool and a play­ground (with clim­bing scaf­folds, balan­cing rope, hand clim­bing bridge, play ship)

3. Mini­golf

Chal­len­ges and tri­umphs – the­se are the fee­lings that the mini­golf has to offer. If you are going to spend a lovely sum­mer day in Horn, why not try out the mini­golf cour­se of Mini­golf am Hörn­le, Harnest Clau­dia. Who will be the glo­rious win­ner and who have the pos­si­bil­ty to show their hid­den talents? Watch out, becau­se pati­ence and ten­aci­ty will both be requi­red. After the tough com­pe­ti­ti­on, you can jump right into the lake to cool down!
