Schloss Helmsdorf is located at a central position next to Lake Constance and an ideal place for excursions. No chance of boredom here! Strolling, biking, hiking or shopping – the surrounding cities and the landscape provide active relaxing.
How about a trip to Friedrichshafen e.g., the home town of the zeppelin? The museum and the hangar will fascinate all ages. Not a technological attraction, though very picturesque: the two islands in the lake – Mainau and Reichenau. Mainau is famous for its magnificent flowers, latest one for its vegetables and UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Other sites worth visiting are the lavish decorated baroque church called Birnau near Überlingen, the lake dwelling settlements in Uhldingen, the imposing Salem Monastery and Palace or the nearby Affenberg zoo with its free-ranging, cheeky barbary monkeys.
