An 18th-century baroque basilica awash in pink and surrounded by vineyards. Reconstructed prehistoric stilt-house dwellings above the water. A medieval castle perched atop a hill. A museum devoted to zeppelins, plus an actual zeppelin high in the sky.
Those were the sights during our first 12 hours at Lake Constance. In between, we encountered towns with tolling church bells, lakeside parks, lively cafes and shimmering blue water.
