Überlingen Details

The town of Uberlingen sits on the northwest shore of Lake Constance in the Baden-Wurttenberg region of southwest Germany. The town is first mentioned in written history in the year 770, though it wasn’t officially founded until 1211. The town’s main center includes a town hall, a cathedral, and fortifications that date to 1180 and the rule of the Emperor Frederick Barbarossa.However, the town was most important to the Hohenstaufen emperors, finding its peak between the 13th and 16th centuries. Much of the town’s growth was due to the prolific grape vineyards along the coast of the lake. On a sadder historical note, the town was home to a satellite labor camp of the Dachau concentration camp during World War II. Today, tourists visit the town mainly for festivals and for the lake. Look for your lakeside hotel or other discount hotel options on, but be sure to book early during festival dates.
