We suggest visiting the beautiful flower island Mainau or the convent on Reichenau island.

    Today sees you cycling along the Lower Lake to the picturesque village of Gottlieben. The architecture of this former fishing village is really impressive and is one of the nicest in the area. The Drachenburg castle and the Waaghaus are worth a visit too. The Waaghaus, a Gothic building in the Old Town, was originally a weighing house but is now a puppet theatre.
