This is the closest bakery, wonderful fresh baked bread daily, only an 2 minute walk from the guest house. Small Tip: They aren't open on Sundays so if you want Sunday bread, buy it on Saturday. If you forget, you can buy bread in the morning on Sunday next door at the Landmarkt. But call the Landmarkt to confirm their opening times on Sunday as they sometime vary.

The beautiful waterfalls are located right across the Switzerland border which is not far from the guest house. There is an entry fee to see the falls but it is a nice afternoon trip. Here is a money saving tip: You must have a Swiss vignette for your car to drive on the Autobahns in Switzerland. This costs approximately 40€. BUT if you take the side roads (set your GPS to non-highway roads) you can access the Rhinefalls without ever going on the Swiss Autobahn after leaving the German border, therefore not having to buy the vignette. If you have any questions about this, just ask us!

This restaurant used to be an old convent and you can hike to this lookout point directly from the guest house. It takes about 40 minutes "zu Fuß" and is uphill a lot of the way... but when you get to the top the view overlooking the lake and the Sipplingen village is definitely worth it! You can also drive the back country roads to get here too but most people enjoy the hike. You can get a cold drink or small meal... Just double check the opening times of the Haldenhof restaurant online if you want to make sure it is open when you go as their opening/closing times vary, especially in the off-season.

Family fun at the waterpark! This is in Switzerland, close to Zurich but it is not a very far drive. This is good when the weather is nice or when the weather is rainy because all of the waterslides are indoors. There is also an outdoor wellness pool. This could be a fun trip just for the waterpark or you can visit Zurich city for the day and spend a few hours at the waterpark before heading back to the guest house. Please keep in mind that you will probably have to buy a Switzerland Vignette to drive on the motorway to get here unless you go by train.

Do you love Game of Thrones and want to walk through a real medieval style fortress castle? You can buy tickets for a walking tour through the castle located in the middle of Meersburg. You can do this while you are visiting the city of Meersburg. Great for everyone, including families! Small Tip: There are 2 "castles" in Meersburg, the Old medieval style fortress castle (this one, called "Alte Burg") and the "New" pink castle (called "Schloss Meersburg"), just so you're not confused. They are a few minutes walking distance from each other so you can visit both of them. The Alte Burg is more interesting in our opinion but you should definitely see both of them. Don't worry about parking or driving- you can use your Echt Bodensee Card and take the bus for free to get to Meersburg from Sipplingen.

Small Tip: You can of course drive here or you can use your free Echt Bodensee Card for a free ride on the bus to Meersburg. You can also pair going here with visiting the city of Meersburg as this would make a nice, relaxing end to a day of sightseeing around Meersburg.

Want to Relax? You can do it here. They offer spa areas, saunas and pools for an affordable price. Great for everyone, including families! The Überlingen Therme is closer and easier to get to Sipplingen, but if you've already been there and want to try out another Therme location, definitely check this out. Only ca. 15 minutes drive from Sipplingen. Locals have their own opinions about which spa is better- in Überlingen or Meersburg... if you have time to visit both then you can decide for yourself! Small Tip: You can of course drive here or you can use your free Echt Bodensee Card for a free ride on the bus to Meersburg. You can also pair going here with visiting the city of Meersburg as this would make a nice, relaxing end to a day of sightseeing around Meersburg.
This UNESCO world heritage site museum is very interesting with the history in the area dating back over 3,000 years! They give inexpensive tours throughout the day, highly recommend for any and everyone, especially families! Small tip: If you are driving, for an easy day trip, you can pair this together with visiting the Auto & Traktor Museum and/or Reptilienhaus since they are all close to each other (you could also squeeze in the monkeys at Affenberg if you start early!) or pair this with sightseeing afterwards around Überlingen. For a day trip by bus, you could take the bus from Sipplingen to Uhldingen and walk to Pfahlbauten then walk to the Reptilienhaus and with leftover time, take the bus to Überlingen and walk around there.

This is the famous Bregenzer Festspiele, as seen in the James Bond movie (Quantum of Solace). This outdoor theater is really one of a kind and you must get tickets very early in advance to attend. It is only happening during the peak summer months and the tickets aren't cheap... but if you want a unique theater experience, Bregenz is less than an hour away! You can also visit the city of Bregenz... it is right along the lake, the first city you get to right after the Austrian border.

Sightseeing
This is the famous Island Mainau. It is the "Flower Island" and there is also a Butterfly conservatory. It is a main attraction around the Bodensee and highly recommended. You can get to this by driving or you can take the ferry directly to the island directly from Sipplingen or Überlingen. Small Tip: Unfortunately ferry rides are not included with the Bodensee card. You can of course easily walk down to the Sipplingen Landungsplatz (beside the Riva Restaurant) and catch the ferry from there. You can also use the Echt Bodensee Card for a free bus ride to the Überlingen Landungsplatz stop. Then you can take the ferry from there directly to Mainau (then you only pay for the ferry ride and it is actually a nice way to go since it's a great view). Sometimes there are more pickup times with the ferry throughout the day from Überlingen so just check the ferry times online to decide.

You should definitely go here! The view of the lake is absolutely amazing and it is free to visit! This is an old pink colored convent overlooking the lake and is surrounded by vineyards. Very unique! It is free to visit the Birnau church and they have a very nice church service on Sundays. This is only about 15 minutes drive from the guest house. Small Tip: before or afterwards, you can walk across the street to the Markgraf von Baden winery (it is maybe a 5 minute walk). They have a very good restaurant, including a special priced lunch menu, and of course very good wine :) Call in advance to check opening days and hours of the restaurant.

Meersburg is a beautiful and famous city to visit at the Bodensee. It is about 20 minutes from the guest house. This is a nice city to visit for the day and there are 2 castles in the city center, one old castle with a drawbridge and a new castle. Both are walking distance from each other. The old castle has an amazing lake view. Meersburg is a main ferry port that you can take your car across the lake to Konstanz from here. (you can also walk on the ferry, your choice) There are also several big souvenir shops in the city center if you are looking for gifts to bring home. Check the Meersburg castle opening times on their website. Small Tip: You can get here for free with the bus using the Echt Bodensee Card that is included with the Sipplingen Kurtaxe. This is nice because you can have some local Meersburg wine without having to worry about driving... or finding parking.

If you want to take a small and easy day trip, go visit Konstanz! It is on the other side of the lake and along the Swiss border. It is one of the largest cities around the lake. There are lots of cute shops, restaurants, large stores, museums and more and it is nice to just walk around and see what you will discover. You can even walk across the border to Switzerland with one foot in Germany and the other foot in Switzerland as the main city ends at the Swiss border town of Kreuzlingen. There are always lots of events going on in Konstanz so check the city website to see what is happening on the day you want to go. Small tip: You can drive there from Sipplingen in about 40 minutes. You can also get there by train for free from Sipplingen to Konstanz city center using your Echt Bodensee Card you get free with the Sipplingen Kurtaxe, that way you don't have to worry about parking. Another option is you could take the bus for free (with the Echt Bodensee Card) to Meersburg then take the ferry across the lake directly to Konstanz. You must pay for the ferry but it is not expensive and a very nice and scenic ride. We would recommend that at least one way, then you can take the train back for free to Sipplingen.
