This Uhldingen-Muhlhofen travel guide will tell you all the basic information about the small town located in southern Germany, on the northern shore of Lake Constance. It is a very popular tourist destination due to the aquatic opportunities it offers and the quiet atmosphere that characterizes its surroundings. With a population of just over 8.000, Uhldingen-Muhlhofen managed to organize itself very well and perfectly exploit all its attractions, turning itself into a small but prosperous community. Initial dwellings dating back from the middle ages were reconstructed and picturesque lake houses are a very common sight in the city.

Uhldingen-Muhlhofen Travel Guide – Population and Economy

The economy of the city is perfectly balanced between the production and the service sector, as most of the population is middle class and oriented towards the best formula in order to sustain itself. Thus, a large percentage of the territory is still covered with vineyards and orchards, but people also commute to nearby Friedrichshafen or even Stuttgart on a daily basis. A railway system and bus routes connect the town to nearby tourist destinations and also to larger cities in Germany and there are also ships that transport people across the lake. A cycling track follows the lake shore and makes a great opportunity to visit the natural reservation that covers the area.
