„The Way is the Goal.”-Confucius
On the Way to the holiday We can often not wait to finally arrive at your Destination, mostly the Hotel. We at Centro Guest house Are of course always happy about their Arrival. Nevertheless, we agree With Confucius that the Road should be the Goal. In the Case of a Holiday in Constance, this is, of course, a Hiking Trail. Hiking along Lake Constance is the ideal Mix of Active holidays and Recreation. Today we want to show You a small Selection of the many Hiking Opportunities in and around Constance.
Are You Running enough? Yes? Really? Are you sure?
We all know her, the famous 10,000 Steps we should take every Day. Often, however, Work and Commitments prevent us from achieving this proven healthy Step count. To Illustration: A Manager averages 3,000 Steps, a Salesman reaches 5,000. Only, if You are a Postman, You might want to spend a little more Time on the Couch on holiday-this Professional Group, with 15,000 Steps a Day, manages One-and-a-half Times the health Minimum. By Comparison, the ever-declining Amount Of American running by has already reached a meagre average of 5,000 Steps per Person per day. You can do That better!
All Beginning is-beautiful
10,000 Steps equate to 5 To 8 kilometers, depending on Foot size and Step Distance. What a coincidence is that the Waterfront path to The Konstanzer Hörnle measures exactly 8.0 km. It offers a perfect, relaxed Entry Into the great World of Hikers. The small Hike starts at the Pera statue in the Port of Konstanz, just a 5‑minute Walk from The Centro guest House. After Leaving behind the satirical Anecdote to the Council of Constance, the Trail will take You to the Old Town. The Orientation is easy, just stay as close to The Shore of Lake Constance as possible. It’s best to linger briefly on the Rhine Bridge. In addition to a magnificent View of Lake Constance, You can even catch a Glimpse of the Alps here in clear Weather. Maybe Your next Goal? A Staircase to Your Right then Takes You to the Lakeside Road, which invites you to Rest with its many Benches. At the End of the Lakeside Road starts the last Part of the Path, which is only accessible by pedes. You follow this Path along the Shore, past the Lake Constance Spa, to the lido at The Hörnle, which is open all year round and can be entered free of charge (if Your Children moan at The Keyword „hiking at Lake Constance,” helps as another Word „lido bath” often Immensely) . The Tip of the Hörnle is now just a Stone’S throw away. Apart from the excellent Long-distance view over Lake Constance, there is another sense Of achievement within Reach: 10,000 Steps! No one takes Them from you anymore. Back at the Hotel, the Feeling in the Legs at The Dinner table is reminiscent of Your success, our Ancestors, a Time without desk chairs and our Fellow People in South Africa-who hold up the Flag of our Health with over 10,000 Steps a Day-just as You did today Bravo!
„I’ll be gone.”
If You may be a Postman after all, or for other Reasons, could only smile tired when You think of such a Day Trip, don’t worry! For all those who are looking for the Challenge, Hape Kerkeling Provided an excellent Idea by 2008 at the latest. For him, hiking at Lake Constance was not enough, which is why he went to Santiago de Compostela. Hike a Bit along the famous Way of St. James! Bus Lines 4 and 13 Are available from the Centro guest House to Wallhausen. There, from The Jetty, You will start Your 18.7km journey back to Konstanz on the final Stage of Linzgau’s Way of St. James, one of 6 sections of St. James’s Way that are Part of Via Beuronensis. You will be Led by the international Jacob’s Way, the Mussel Pilgrim. This resembles a nine-ray, yellow Star on a blue background. Halfway through you can enjoy the fantastic View from the Purren Location, possibly stop in the Beer Garden of St. Katharinen. After almost 5 Hours and 400 metres of ascent and Descent, You will return to the Site of the Beginning and can relax in the Centro guest House. The next Adventure awaits!
The Schwabenweg Transforms Constancy into a Springboard into the Alps
Experienced Hikers and all those who still want to become one are also not limited When Staying at The Centro Guest house. For example, you could continue to follow the Course of the Way of St. James. From the Konstanzer Münster, it runs as a so-called Swabian Trail through the Swiss Canton of Thurgau to Lake Zurich, which You, worthy of an Adventurer, cross on a pilgrim wooden walkway. After that, it is only necessary to climb the Etzelpass on a pilgrimage route. At its Foot, the small Village of Einsiedeln, which is the most visited Pilgrimage Site in Switzerland, is waiting For you. Much more, however, it also serves as a „Basecamp” to Thousands of Hikers and Mountaineers annually. Do You Want to call yourself Alpine Conquerors? The 2294 m high Mutteristock in the Glarner Alps is not far from Einsiedeln and is particularly popular with Skiers. But maybe You can give yourself a Day’s break in Einsiedeln. After a total of 26 hours and 92 km you can use hiking from Konstanz safely. And if they’re not a Postman, You can also just take the Car. Within 1.5 hours you can reach Einsiedeln from The Centro guest House. Because let’s face it: Sometimes hiking at Lake Constance becomes too much-and there comes a Day Trip at just the right time.
