Leisure tips

An excellent location!

Ice cream parlours, restaurants, palm trees and street musicians. And the Alps greet you. On Germany's longest promenade you can relax and unwind. The sun is shining. How about a trip across the lake? Austria and Switzerland beckon. The cool water is calling to you - three beach public bathing beaches await you. Thermal springs with a sauna park, golf, miniature golf, tennis and water sports from A to Z. Fancy a trip to the lake dwellings in Unteruhldingen, to Mainau Island or to Meersburg? 270 km of cycling trails await you. How about walking into the Marienschlucht ravine to see the "Teufelstisch" ("Devil's Table")? A visit to the Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen? Or would you prefer going to Affenberg ("Monkey Mountain") in Salem? Everything is just a few kilometres away from Überlingen. Boredom? Not a chance.
The hostel is on the eastern outskirts of the town, 100 m from the shore with stunning views across the lake.
