Ha, isn’t it a cutie? I saw this microcar generally known as Heinkel Kabine at an event called “Internationale Bodenseewoche”. This traditional festival takes place at the harbor of Constance’s historic city center. It’s not only a meeting point for lovers of classic cars but also for powerful boats.
In this building, Pope Martin V was elected in the year 1417. This was a very important event during the Council of Constance (1414-1418). The name of this building still reminds on this event: Council Building (Konzilgebäude).
While crossing Lake Constance from Meersburg to Constance by boat I took this photo of a conspicuous white coloured tower named Otto-Moericke-Turm. It is a former water tower which houses a youth hostel now. A fine address if one would like to stay at something special.
On my way to Meersburg Castle, I came across this Zeppelin museum located in Meersburg. If one interested in this kind of airships this museum and the Zeppelin museum in Friedrichshafen nearby would be a good combination.
The ‘Seehas’ is a rail link between Constance (Konstanz) and Engen. The name doesn’t derive from the existing fish ‘Seehase‘ (lumpsucker), but from a fabulous creature supposed to live in the western part of Lake Constance. People there believe the ‘Seehas’ is a hybrid of a rabbit and a fish.
Windegg Mansion (Schloss Windegg) also known as the ‘Bürgle‘ was founded in the 14th century as a guesthouse for a nearby abbey. There is a rumour that Pope Martin V stayed here for some time after his election in 1417 at the Council of Constance.
