Immenstaad is a resort town (6000 inhabitants) on the shores of Lake Constance (Bodensee) in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. The area is breathtakingly beautiful, probably one of the most beautiful landscapes in Europe. Close to the Alps, in the midst of wineries, rolling hills, quaint towns, and, let's not forget, the lake. The lake is great for swimming and all kinds of watersports. On our beach you can lend kayaks and canoes. We own a SUP for you to use. A yachtclub not far from us rents out sailing- and motorboats, no special license needed as guest! Visit the island of Mainau (aka the Flower-island), we're close to Munich, Bavaria (2 hour drive) and Zurich, Switzerland 1,5 hour. The city of Stuttgart is 1,5 hour drive away. Visit the famous castle of Neuschwanstein (which Disney used prototype for Cinderella's castle) in Füssen, Bavaria (about 2 hours). Several other old castles can be visited from our area in daytrips. The medieval castle in Meersburg is in the next town down the lake, and the castle of Sigmaringen is about 45 minutes away. The nearest airport is the international airport of Zurich or fly via Frankfurt to Friedrichshafen (5 miles from Immenstaad). Stuttgart or Munich airports are possibilities too. Our town is a favorite holidayspot for Germans, nice and lively in summer, but since our house sits on a dead end street it is very peaceful there. The pebblestone beach (free access) is only a 2 minute walk from our house. The view from the lake is on the Swiss mountains and just stunning. An indoor swimmingpool on the lake with beach access and all facilities, incl. playground and outdoor toddlerpool is 2 minutes further along the coast. Immenstaad town has a shoppingstreet and 2 supermarkets, lovely restaurants and bakeries open also on sundaymornings for fresh rolls! It is a nice, quaint village with a good feel to it. Hiking in the area behind the lake is recommended; also a great area for biking. The biketour all around the lake is famous! Many excursions and daytrips can be made in the area; by car (car exchange negotiable), by bus, train or boat. Bavaria, Switzerland and Austria are very close. We'll leave all the necessary info in the house. For information on what the area has to offer, have a look at the following websites: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Constance http://www.bodensee.eu/ http://www.mainau.de/home.html http://en.immenstaad-tourismus.de/ http://www.festspielhausbregenz.at/en/festival-house/

We are passionate about traveling and home exchange is the way we have been doing it most of the time, for the past 17 years. We were looking for an exchange this winter to a sunny destination before this corona situation happened. We are Winfried, 66, a retired but very active schoolprincipal and me, Annelies, 58, not retired yet. Our daughter Alexandra, 19, is studying in Maastricht, Netherlands.
