Überlingen : Michelin's recommendations
This former Imperial City was founded in 1180 by Frederick I Barbarossa. Its growth and prosperity in the Middle Ages were largely due to harvests from the vineyards and trade in salt and wheat. In 1379 the city was granted Imperial freedom. From the mid 19C the tourist industry, fostered by a particularly mild climate, played an increasingly important economic role.

The vast Gothic cathedral has an enormous central portion with five aisles covered with fan vaulting. A graceful Swabian work of 1510, the Virgin of the Crescent Moon, stands in St. Elizabeth's chapel off the south aisle.
The square lies between the Gothic cathedral, the north façade of the town hall and the Renaissance municipal chancellery.
The council chamber is decorated with great finesse in the Gothic manner: panelled walls embellished with projecting arches, a ribbed and slightly rounded ceiling.
