Our holiday house in Wasserburg, district of Hengnau. It is only 2.5 km to Lake Constance and 6 km to Lindau. Hengnau is embedded in fruit gardens and grasslands and makes an ideal origin for hiking. No matter what season, Lake Constance is always worth a journey: in spring during the blossoming of the trees, in summer for swimming in the lake, in autumn for apple harvest and vintage, and in winter for relaxing and enjoying the tranquillity. Wasserburg-Hengnau is a paradise for hikers, Nordic Walkers and cyclists. 38 km newly tagged hiking trails lead into the pictorial back land – not to forget the Lake Constance cycling trail. “New”: Wasserburg and Lindau have created a network of 17 Nordic Walking tracks for a complete length of 130 km. The tracks are 2.6 to 17.5 km long.
In the mirror of the seasons: Each season has something special about it in Wasserburg. With its fascinating variety of colours spring starts a little earlier here. The mild climate at Lake Constance makes grasslands, flowers, bushes and thousands of fruit trees bloom, when winter is still dominating the mountains. A fascinating view and a magnificent scenery for cycling and hiking. The contemplative winter time also has its charms in Wasserburg. The lake shines in various colours, in the background the snow topped Swiss mountains arise. Now it is time for walks through the fresh winter air, jolly laps on ice-skates on the lake or for a fun-filled afternoon of tobogganing from the distrainor with mulled whine for reheating. In the higher situated Allgaeu (approx. 15 minute drive) the cross country skiing area of Scheidegg offers wonderful paths and runs. The skiing area in Bregenzerwald can be reached in approx. 30 minutes by car. For relaxing there is an adventure swimming pool in Lindau.
