I live in this town... anybody who has ever been here will confirm that this is one great little place. There are only 50,000 people living here, but live is gooood. the town is small, but had not been destroyed in a long time, so that all old buildings are still intact and make for a real nice inner city where you can go shopping or just walk around and grab some drinks.
the city's main attraction are its towers. there are 11 of them and I have only climed one of them :)
The city offers a beautiful inner city. It is surrounded by lots of hills, meadows, forest, lakes and creeks which make the surround area really beautiful. The town is also close to 'Bodensee', or Lake Constance, which is the largest lake (by water mass) in Europe. Also, it is located real close to Switzerland, Austria, Italy, and France making this a real central location in Europe. Whether you want to see some nice German town, or you want to enjoy the outdoors, this is a nice place to visit.
