The space
Apartment Description:
This is an amazing apartment on the 2nd floor (called 1st floor in Germany). Via elevator you can reach the indoor heated pool which is currently open to all guests between 6 am and 10 pm. Special hygiene regulations apply. The pool is closed for deep cleaning 11/8-11/19).

There is a large living room with two sleeper sofas and another sleeping room with one double bed (Swissflex, 160 cm x 200 cm - Queen Size). In this double bed room, there is also a small kitchen (sink, small silent fridge, quiet dishwasher, etc) which can be hidden behind blinds (Rollladen). These blinds can be pulled down to make the kitchen disappear at night. The baby crib we provide fits snuggly in this bedroom next to the bed. The larger sleeper furniture comfortably sleeps two people in the living room (190 x 190 cm).

There is a balcony with view onto the lake and an indoor swimming pool which is especially great for those rainy days. There is a ping pong table room.

With a special registration guest card you can take the local bus for free and will not need your car. Please present all your names, birthdates and your address to us before arrival. At the Tourism Office you will then be able to pick up the registration cards for the free bus rides and all sorts of discounts. The island offers rental bikes and you can rent canoes. The island is considered a world heritage site that specializes in farmland. Our building is an amazing place located behind a small castle. Between the building and us is a large park with benches, a small pond and a playground - ample space for children to play safely.

The furnishing is a combination of 70s and Modern and is tasteful. The quiet will not be disturbed - we do offer radio, tv and wireless internet. Bedding and towels are included. We also have a stove, an oven, toaster, steamer, water cooker, coffeemaker, microwave, hair dryer, etc.

We have a baby bed on request as well.

We have a shower/bathroom but it's more fun to take a shower by the pool.

There is an indoor garage but it is easier to park for free outside.

You can actually reach the apartment by public transportation: Just take the train to the train station 'Bahnhof Reichenau' on the mainland and connect to the local bus # 7372 that lets you off on the island at Reichenau/Königsegg which is very close to the apartment.

The nearby town 'Konstanz' is very picturesque and has a really beautiful old town and harbor.

It is very, very relaxing to spend your vacation on the island and swimming in the lake with a 5 min walk to the swimming place is a sensation.

Where you’ll be

Reichenau, Baden-Württemberg, Germany

A visit to the island of Reichenau is a real feast for the senses. Visitors’ noses are met by the aromatic, earthy smell of the countless herbs that grow on the island. Their taste buds are tickled by the delicious flavours of fresh vegetables and fish. Their eyes are treated to panoramic lake and mountain views, while their ears can simply enjoy the sound of silence.

Vegetable island of Lake Constance
At 430 hectares, Reichenau is the largest of the Lake Constance islands and is known to many as the “vegetable island”. The island has ideal conditions for vegetable growing thanks to an above-average number of days of sunshine and the lake, which stores warmth and guarantees a plentiful supply of water. Here, it is quality, not quantity that counts. The 150 hectares of open land and 40 hectares of greenhouses are mostly planted by small family-run businesses. Germany’s most southerly growing area produces around 15,000 tonnes of vegetables per year. Cauliflowers, broccoli, fennel, cucumbers, kohlrabi, radishes, lettuce, celery, tomatoes – the list goes on and on. The focus is on growing and harvesting produce in harmony with nature. Along with its famous vegetables, the island can also offer fresh fish and its own wines, thanks to its two dozen professional fisherman and 20 hectares of vineyards.

UNESCO World Heritage site Reichenau
The island’s vegetable growing can be traced back to a monastery’s herb garden. Walahfrid Strabo cultivated the first herbs, spices and medicinal plants in the garden of the Benedictine abbey, which was founded in the year 724 by Saint Pirmin, an itinerant monk. During the early Middle Ages, the abbey made a name for itself far beyond the country’s borders as a religious, cultural and political centre. The original, somewhat modest, church, today’s Minster of St. Mary and St. Mark, gradually grew to become a magnificent abbey church. And the churches of St George, St Peter and St Paul may have been built in the 9th-11th centuries, but they still never fail to impress their visitors. The three Romanesque churches are excellent examples of early medieval Central European architecture, and their wall paintings make the island an important centre of European art history from the 10th and 11th centuries. Indeed, Reichenau has been granted UNESCO World Heritage status.
Today a statue of the itinerant bishop St Pirmin stands on the poplar-lined bridge that leads to the island. His legacy is best viewed from above: the 45-metre-high Hochwart offers a fantastic view over the island with its historic buildings, vegetable gardens and vineyards.
