Getting to Konstanz

Closest airport to Konstanz

The closest airport to Konstanz is just on the other side of Lake Constance just outside Friedrichshafen but the shorter distance includes a ferry across the lake.

Distance to Friedrichshafen (Bodensee) Airport: 32km
Distance to Zurich Airport: 70km
Distance to Memmingen (Allgäu) Airport: 111km
Distance to Basel (EuroAirport) Airport: 158km
Distance to Stuttgart Airport: 178km

The airports at both Memmingen and Friedrichshafen are favourites for low-cost airlines and offer limited choices of destinations compared to the larger city airports. The shorter distances also involve a ferry journey across Lake Constance. Otherwise the optimal choices are probably the larger airports at Zurich and Stuttgart, with Zurich having a big advantage in distance.

Train station in Konstanz

The train station in Konstanz is set just back from the lakeshore on the edge of old town and near the ferry terminals. The railway station offers a German and a Swiss section. The German line runs regional express services through to Singen (part of the Schwarzwaldbahn which ends up in Karlsruhe) where there are Intercity connections to Stuttgart and regional services to Ulm.

The Swiss section offers regular rail links to Zurich and St Gallen as part of their Interregio express service.

Ferry service from Konstanz around Lake Constance

Ferry travel is a popular option for sightseeing but also for those who want a relatively quick and uncomplicated route to other parts of Lake Constance. (Road connections, especially in the summer high season, can be very busy.) Konstanz is connected to Meersburg, Überlingen, Friedrichshafen and Lindau on the German side and Bregenz in Austria with the regular ferry service. There are also frequent connections to the popular tourist destination of Mainau island.

There is a car ferry service between Konstanz and Meersburg, although it should be noted that the port for this is in the Konstanz suburb of Staad on the northern side of the peninsula.

A year-round connection to the other end of the lake can be found via the Friedrichshafen-Konstanz catamaran ferry service.
