Excursion tips

Hotel LILIENBERG is the ideal starting point for adventure holidays. The Untersee region offers a wide range of possibilities, both in terms of culture and sport. We will be happy to provide you with specific suggestions to make your holiday even more memorable. Below is a selection of possible activities.

Navigation at Untersee

Enjoy the beautiful landscape of Lake Constance from the lake. From May to mid-September you can enjoy a trip on the scheduled boats, for example to the island of Reichenau or to Stein am Rhein.

Vinorama Ermatingen

The Museum Vinorama Ermatingen shows stately living around 1900 in the Villa Phönix. In the former horse stable Remise, the history of winegrowing at Untersee, the political and social upheaval in the 19th century as well as the medieval relations with the Reichenau monastery, the effects of the Council of Constance on the entire region and the events of the Swabian War at Untersee are presented.

The museum can be visited on a guided tour followed by an aperitif, or you can explore it yourself and conclude the tour with a tasting of the Untersee wines.

Arenenberg Castle

Founded in 1906, the Napoleon Museum Thurgau, Arenenberg Castle and Park, is the only German-language museum on Napoleonic history. As it was then, it is still an open, hospitable house where visitors will feel like the guests of Queen Hortense, Napoleon III's mother. The museum is always open until 05.00 pm.

Enjoy the magnificent panoramic view, just as Prince Louis Napoleon and Queen Hortense de Bauharnais did 200 years ago from the historic Napoleon Tower!

Kreuzlingen Planetarium Observatory

Dare to take a look at the starry sky! The planetarium offers the opportunity to do so. You can also get competent information about the current constellation there.

Gourmet Workshop Arenenberg

The team of the Arenenberg Education and Guidance Centre (BBZ) welcomes you with a cheese aperitif on the castle terrace of the Napoléon memorial. Under expert guidance you will create a gourmet menu in a team according to your wishes. The floral decoration for the table is just as much a part of it as good service. The cosy get-together, the enjoyment of the excellent food, which is accompanied by a fine wine from the own vineyard, is the crowning conclusion of the unique gourmet experience.

Constance

The historic city centre of Constance is well worth a visit. Particularly interesting are the guided tours, which are offered on various topics. For example

  • Walls tell stories
  • Of Wuost ditches and other "quiet" places
  • On the trail of the Council

You can round off the tour with dinner in one of Constance's restaurants.

We recommend:
Restaurant Weinstube in Hotel Barbarossa
Restaurant Dominikanerstube in Steigenberger Inselhotel
