Thurgau

Thurgau, the cyclist's holiday paradise on Lake Constance

To the south of Lake Constance, nestling between the lake and the foothills of the Swiss Alps, there is a charming green landscape with many rivers running through it - the canton of Thurgau. This region characterised by snug farming villages, the occasional little castle, peaceful woods, numerous orchards and vineyards and Lake Constance has a very natural feel and seems to be waiting to be explored. Several villages and towns with historic buildings provide visitors with an opportunity to gain insights into the area's past.
