Old Town (Niederburg), Konstanz

Narrow streets wind through half-timbered merchant houses from the medieval ages. It’s actually an incredibly well preserved town considering it’s in Germany; the WWII Allied bombings largely spared Konstanz because they didn’t want to risk bombing the Swiss side. Patrons of boutiques and cafes camp content, comfortable at their u...

Jan Hus was a celebrated Czech reformer. In 1415, he was burnt to death by the Church Council of Konstanz for the criticisms he levelled against them. History would not let him be forgotten. This lovely half-timbered house was his residence in the city, and now it has been converted into a museum in his honor. The exhibition takes you through his i...

Imperia Hafenstraße 78462 Konstanz Germany
A gigantic statue of a barely clothed woman is hardly something you’d expect would be the landmark of a major city. And yet that is what Imperia is. She towers over Constance harbour, holding in one hand Pope Martin V and in the other, Emperor Sigismund. She represents contempt of and condemnation for the Catholic clergy of her times. Th...
