Biohotel Mohren

Located in the hinterlands of Lake Constance, in a small village surrounded by pastures and farmland, Biohotel Mohren is inspired by its surroundings and has an organic outlook. In the cozy hotel restaurant you’ll find German classics made with the best local ingredients, including some of the best Schnitzel you’re ever likely to taste!

Another excellent hotel restaurant (in the Residenz am See), Casala is not only a favorite for its upscale menu and décor, but also its view of the lake. Classic dishes are prepared with seasonal ingredients, and the interior has an upmarket feel.

Löwen Altheim

Restaurant, German

This unassuming village restaurant in a traditional German timber house has been chosen by Michelin as one of the region’s best restaurants. From the windows, diners can see sheep grazing on the pasture next door. The menu contains excellent dishes, such as grilled entrecote with herb couscous, and lamb filet in a port wine sauce.

Part of the very modern RIVA Hotel am Bodensee, Ophelia is an upscale restaurant where classics are reinterpreted by Head Chef Dirk Hoberg and his team. The tasting menu includes unique dishes such as pigeon with kohlrabi rice, and bison with green asparagus, eggplant, and potato.


Boutique Hotel Restaurant, German

Another excellent restaurant that’s right by the water, Seehalde is much more than a charming hotel with its own beach. The menu focuses on seafood, with delicious options like a Bouillabaisse made from local fish, or local fish fillets with baked vegetables. There’s also a special tasting menu for two that explores Bodensee fish varieties through innovative dishes.

Landgasthof zum Adler

Boutique Hotel Restaurant, German

This classy German Landgasthof (country inn) has a very cozy restaurant, with outdoor seating that looks out over the beautiful valley. On the menu are all those hearty German classics like homemade Bratwurst and Baden-style cheese Spätzle.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
