The large letters on the facade reveal that the black box, set on a hillside on the northern shore of Lake Constance, is a holiday home. From the entrance side the house makes a rather closed impression, but on the lake side it opens with large windows towards the garden. Like the architecture, the interior is simple and understated with wooden features adding cosiness to its elegant ambiance. Both 70 sqm apartments offer space for up to four people, but the box can also be booked as a whole for eight. The ground floor apartment has a terrace with lake view; the upper floor flat features a large balcony with panoramic views. The house is located directly above the Lake Constance bike path, a beach is only a five minutes walk away and the town centre is within easy reach.

What to do

Beautiful hiking trails directly from the house either directly on the lake or in altitude above the lake. If you would like to hike in the mountains, you reach the Alps in an hour driving time.
Water sports (sailing, water skiing, boat rental, sailing and motorboat school, surfing, etc.) are possible in the immediate vicinity.
Cycle tours (also mountain biking): 300 meters from the house starts the Bodensee-Rund-Radweg, one of the most popular bike paths in Europe.
Trip by ferry or boat to the student city Konstanz on the opposite shore of Lake Constance.
Sights within a radius of max. 20 km: stilt houses, island Mainau, animal park Affenberg, reptile house, pet court Reuthmühle, Andreashof, Vineum Meersburg, pilgrimage church Birnau, castle Meersburg, castle Salem, chateau Meersburg, spas in Meersburg , Überlingen and Konstanz, ...

Sonja & Carsten Knaus with Laura & Elena and their Dalmatian Bailey: The idea behind Ferienbox was to create a place where we would spend our holidays ourselves. We built it in 2012 and then moved in ourselves for almost 2 years, so that we could experience and appreciate first-hand what we were going to offer our guests. And ever since we opened it in 2014, we’ve been enjoying the many positive responses we’ve received from our guests.

  1. Wir waren spontan 4 Tage in der wunderschönen Ferienwohnung. Obwohl die Vermieter im Zeitpunkt der Anfrage selbst im Urlaub waren, hat der Kontakt wunderbar geklappt und alles war perfekt vorbereitet. Qualitativ sehr hochwertige Ausstattung, die sauberste Wohnung, die ich jemals gebucht hatte, selbst der Duschvorhang wird nach jedem Gast entfernt und gewaschen. Traumhafte Terrasse mit tollem Blick auf den Bodensee. Sehr nette Vermieter.

  2. Ein wunderbarer Ort mit feinfühligen Anbietern.
    Wir waren geschäftlich und privat da und konnten alle Termine durch die gute Lage( auch der ÖV) gut kombinieren.
    Wenn das WLAN dann durch einen guten Anbieter verbessert wird, wäre dann auch die Arbeitswelt voll zufrieden.
    Wir kommen gerne wieder

  3. Wir haben mit 2 Familien im Mai für eine Woche dieses Haus “belagert”. War eine wunderschöne Woche und der perfekte Ausgangspunkt für viele Ausflüge – auch mit Kindern. Wir bekamen tolle Tipps von den Vermietern. Vor allem für Radfahrer ist die Infrastruktur auch perfekt (eigener Raum zum Absperren, Parkplatz im Ort etc.).
