Top Ten Switzerland Off-the-Beaten-Path Adventures

Play on Lake Constance

No matter what your game, the vast expanse of water called Lake Constance seems to stretch forever. Fed by the Rhine River, this water body forms a border between Switzerland, Austria, and Germany. And it's ideal for all sorts of water-based activities—fishing, swimming, rowing, and scuba diving. And though it seems you're up against mountains almost everywhere in Switzerland, that's not the case here; for windsurfers and sailors, the wide-open space means a constant supply of winds sweeping across the lake. If getting wet's not your idea of fun, you can always stick to the shoreline instead—the 167-mile bike trail circling the lake is a popular excursion.
