All you need to know about 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.
