In pictures: evening in Konstanz, Germany

One random Wednesday evening I happened to visit Konstanz, Germany. A trip I didn’t expect at all (not even 2 hours before arriving) but a very enjoyable one. I remember very well learning about this city in history lessons at school so when I ended up being very near and with good train connections, going to Konstanz seemed like the only acceptable option. It was just a regular day, I haven’t spotted any tourists around and it was nice to wander around a feel the real atmosphere of the city. People were hurrying back home after the day at work, shops were slowly closing down, first customers appeared in the restaurants for dinner…

Konstanz played an important role in the Europe’s history. Back in XVth century, between 1414 and 1418, the Council of Constance took place there – the event mostly known for execution of Jan Hus (the same one whose monument stands proudly in the heart of Prague’s Old Town Square) and the 1500 prostitutes serving the event. Now, at the entrance to the harbor, the big statue of Imperia can be found. The monument commemorates the Council of Constance and its licentiousness. The 9 meters tall woman in very skimpy clothes holds Pope Martin V and Emperor Sigismund – main figures of the event. The statue is pretty unique as it’s the only monument of prostitute in the world – is it bad that I found it fascinating and just loved it?

But Konstanz is more than that! The Old Town is really lovely, in the typical nice German style. Colorful buildings, houses with shutters, tall churches, cobbled streets, numerous restaurants and the location at the shore of the Lake of Constance makes it the city I’d definitely like to come back to and spend more time discovering. Here’s a sneak peek to my short visit there

    Konstanz looks like a great city; I would love the opportunity to visit it someday! I love that your visit here was completely spontaneous; sometimes the most memorable trips are the ones that aren’t planned. Great photos!

    Hey, thats my hometown :)
    Came here for studies and stayed because it’s so pretty and of course because of the lake.

    You have to come and visit in summer! Sooo nice hanging around at the lake:)

    Best,
    Sven

      I bet living there must be really nice, with the mountains nearby and the amazing lake! I’d definitely love to see the city in the summertime too!! All the best!

  3. I’m livin’ close to Constance and duh, I don’t like it at all :D To me there are so many more beautiful towns around the Lake, like Meersburg, Tettnang, Bregenz, … :)

      I haven’t been to any of the places you’ve mentioned (and heard only of Bregenz) so I can’t compare. But I really did like Constance in this short time I’ve spent there!
