City Facts - Konstanz
Konstanz is a city located on the banks of Lake Constance in
the south of Germany. The city is home to around 83,000 people and is a
university city which is also home to a well-preserved medieval district called
Niederburg. The city is located just 70 km from Zurich and 174 km from Stuttgart. With a dramatic landscape and thriving business centre, Konstanz is
a popular business destination and has many serviced
apartment options in the city.
Konstanz can be dated back to the Stone Age and a Roman
settlement later on. The position of the Roman settlement allowed for the
majority of trade in the area and provided a key route both from the water
border and the location between the Swiss and German borders. Trade thrived as
Konstanz owned the only bridge in the region which crossed the Rhine, making
Konstanz a significant and important route. Due to its border with Switzerland,
the city was not bombed during World War II and thus retains a medieval
district and original architecture. The University of Konstanz was established
in 1966 and has gained the reputation of an elite university since 2007.
