Kreuzlingen is right next to the German city of Konstanz on the Lake of Constance. The youth hostel, with its high-ceilings and sunny rooms, was formerly a manor house and was renovated true to style in 2003. It lies in the middle of a park on the shores of the lake.

Konstanz is home to the Konzil and a variety of museums, including the Napoleon Museum. The Pfahlbauten-Dorf (village built on stilts) and the Schiffahrt und Fischereimuseum (the Maritime and Fisheries Museum) serve to illustrate the historical background to the Lake of Constance.
