Konstanz Interesting : Michelin's recommendations


The city, a German enclave on the Swiss bank of Lake Constance, lies in beautiful surroundings. It was long thought to have been founded by the Roman emperor Constantius Chlorus (292-306).

Only Benedict XIII, who took refuge in Spain, remained adamant. In 1417, the election of Martin V put a temporary end to the schism.
