Nearby Airports

Here with us, the distance from the airplane to your event is shorter than in most big cities. Switzerland’s largest airport, Zurich airport, is only one hour away by train, with a train heading from there to Constance every 30 minutes. Or it’s a mere 45-minute “door to door” car ride. And the airports of Friedrichshafen, St. Gallen-Altenrhein, Stuttgart and Munich are good options for getting here as well.

Coming from Germany or Switzerland, Constance central railway station is a good starting point for your congress visit. Anyone who wishes to enjoy Lake Constance can take a 20-minute walk along the water to the BODENSEEFORUM KONSTANZ or take a water taxi. Alternatively, take the bus or a taxi.
