Outlet-Tour around Lake Constance

Enjoy your stay by means of an extended shopping tour! 

There are numerous offers around the lake: outlet centers of renowned clothing manufacturers. 

Day tour with private vehicle.

Please consider our tour packages as proposals.

If you prefere something else instead of a city tour, visiting a museum, or hiking, we would like to propose an alternative quite spontaneously.

Maybe your day trip will take place on a rainy day and you would not rejoice to be out there so much. Or maybe it's a very hot day, and the Lake is attracting you to go for a swim ...

You could also combine two of the tours (eg 'castles-tour' and 'wine tour'). Of course, geographic proximity is a prerequisite, in order to be able to master the tour in one day. And at any moment, our tour guide will indicate the interesting landmarks for you.

And finally, we will not let you starve, of course! We would be happy to schedule a restaurant visit during your tour according to your needs and desires. Or would you prefer to hold a picnic? Then we would take you to a nice place!
