Bodensee, as it is called locally, is as idyllic even in our time. Don't miss visitng the island of Mainau and its marvellous gardens, made by the now late Prince Lennart (of Swedish Bernadotte Royal family) and Russian Románoff ancestry. I met him once, he was very tall like all male Romanoff members, and he spoke perfect both Swedish and Russian, and he was very keen on photography of flowers and animals. Bodensee, or Lake Constance, is a very nice place to go in the middle of inland Europe close to the great Alps. ...And many ships to watch, as well.
