Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Friedrichshafen, Germany your home away from home

Holidaymakers who fancy a tranquil promenade along the shores of a quiet lake while surrounded by magnificent views of the Alps should put Friedrichshafen at the top of their list of potential destinations. This modern city that sits on the lip of Lake Constance towards the south of Germany was heavily bombed during the 2nd World War but has resurrected over time to become an industrial and touristic powerhouse. There is plenty to satisfy the curiosity of history buffs as well as those who love outdoor activities. And while they are sampling the touristic riches of this locale, they can find a place to put up in the form of beautifully furnished farmhouses as well as apartments in quiet surroundings.

Thanks to its ideal location next to a lake and the wonderful climate of the area, Friedrichshafen plays host to a great number of outdoor activities. Cycling around the beautiful landscape ranks highly among these activities and at hand are a number of shops willing to rent out bikes to visitors. Those wanting to challenge themselves can take a tour of the entire lake. With a water body nearby, it?s not surprising that plenty of water sports happen here. These include canoeing both on the lake and on its tributaries.

Eating out is a must for visitors here given the quality of eateries available. For a reasonably-priced meal served in an ambient location, holidaymakers are advised to pass by the Lukullum. For unparalleled lakefront views and excellent cappuccino, the EisCafe Italia café is the way to go.

beautiful,well equipped with helpful owners.

5 of 5
the property was spacious,beautifully decorated and very comfortable.It was well equipped -not once did we wish for something that was not there. Although not situated in a residential area we found the property to be quiet, with 2 supermarkets close by and a short walk from the beautiful town of markdorf.it was also easy to access both the train station and local buses and the group day tickets were so cheap we didn't bother hiring a car! one of the best places we have stayed.

Perfect for a family holday

5 of 5
We spent two weeks here and couldn't have been happier. The owners Bernadette and her husband Alfred are such a lovely couple that went out of their way to make us welcome. The apartment was very clean and the appliances and furniture were all of very good quality. The property is extremely family friendly and the kids room was full of toys and puzzles, in addition to a large games room downstairs with fussball, ping pong, sandpit toys, boardgames, go carts and so on. The outside area has a large sandpit and trampoline as well as an excellent BBQ area and some hammocks under the trees. There is a very picturesque walk into the local village that takes about 20 mins up through the apple orchard and over a hill with an amazing panorama. The area is superb for family activities like fun parks, water parks, swimming in the lake, thermal baths and so on. In two weeks we barely saw half of the things we wanted to. We even drove down to Switzerland via Austria for the day. Be sure to visit the tourist office in Ailingen, they are incredibly helpful and will give you all sorts of vouchers, loan you equipment and so on. Will definitely be returning here, couldn't recommend it more.

Markdorf gem

5 of 5
As a single traveller absolutely loved this apartment if only for a short time. Hopefully longer next visir. Spotlessly clean and well presented with a very helpful owner. Would highly recommend.
