Konstanz is a friendly medieval town with a strategic position: on the banks of the Rhine and also the big Lake Constance. Its preserved medieval district of Niederburg includes the Romanesque Konstanz Cathedral, known for its mix of decorative styles and a Gothic spire. The town hall is covered in delicate frescoes and has a Renaissance-style courtyard. The Rosgartenmuseum chronicles the region’s cultural history, exhibiting prehistoric to 20th-century objects. Tourists are attracted in this resort by the largest beach in the area and also by the medieval charm of Old Town (Altstadt). The close vicinity with Switzerland caused the town to escape the World War II bombing, so it preserved the historical buildings, like the majestic cathedral Münster and the famous University of Konstanz. It's the birthplace of Ferdinand von Zeppelin.
