- Excursion tips
LILIENBERG and the Untersee region offer a wide range of possibilities for your vacation. Whether you are planning a sporty active, culturally interesting or enjoyable relaxing stay, our staff at the reception will have suggestions ready for you.
Enjoy the beautiful landscape of Lake Constance from the lake. From May to mid-September, the scheduled boats from the port of Ermatingen head, for example, to the island of Reichenau with its UNESCO World Heritage Churches & Monasteries or the enchanting historic old town of Stein am Rhein.
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.
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.
Life is already exhausting enough. Enjoy a leisurely bike ride around the Untersee by e-bike. The bike station of our partner indicis.ch is located directly on the Lake Constance bike path in Ermatingen, about 500 meters from LILIENBERG and can be easily reached on foot. Discover the great region with an e-bike or on a guided hiking or biking tour.
All those who, in fine weather, let their gaze roam over the power region of Seerücken Untersee should not shy away from the climb up the Napoleon Tower. You will be rewarded with a magnificent panoramic view, which 200 years ago Prince Louis Napoleon and Queen Hortense de Bauharnais already enjoyed on the historical model of the tower.
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.
The historic city center of Konstanz is well worth a visit. For those interested in history, we recommend registering for a guided tour of the city at the tourist information office at the train station. Of course, you can also discover the city, the cathedral, museums and squares while strolling through the old town alley on an individual walk or allow yourself time for an extensive shopping spree.
Rarely does a golf course blend in better with nature than in Lipperswil. Course architect Kurt Rossknecht belongs to the select circle of elite European members of his guild. Lipperswil is laid out as a 27-hole championship course, consisting of the Schwarzebach, Burkert and Feldgarten courses.
The sightseeing flight over Lake Constance starts at the shipping line in Friedrichshafen. Different routes are offered. The excursion can be combined with a visit to the Zeppelin Museum or an aperitif before departure.
