    Day 64. Lake Constance

    October 7, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Today we crossed Lake Constance from Germany to Switzerland. Stefan drove us to Friedrichshafen in Germany where we caught a ferry to Romanshorn in Switzerland then a train to Rorschach and a bus (we missed the reticulated train) up to Heiden for a walk on a trail around Säntis Alpen. The railway station is 800 metres above sea level.
