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.
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.
A plaque with a three-headed peacock seen in the streets of Constance (Konstanz). Why are three heads wearing a tiara each of them? At the beginning of the 15th century, there were three popes in power at the same time.
The former monastery of the Dominicans situated on a tiny island in front of Constance (Konstanz) accommodates a hotel now. So guests of this hotel and its restaurant have the chance to walk along this cloister decorated with paintings by Carl von Haeberlin.
