Konstanz to Radolfzell
The town of Radolfzell lies 18km northwest of Konstanz and was founded from a monastery. In the centre of the town is the gothic Cathedral of Our Lady with its 82m high tower, the highest church tower on Lake Constance, which houses the beautiful Rosary Altar and the Master of the House Altar containing the relics of the Radolfzell saints. The foundation stone was laid in 1436 and completed in 1550. The charming historical centre draws many visitors each year with its traditions of almost 1,200 years, from modest fishing and wine village to the famous pilgrimage town it is today. Look out for the Radolfzell City Museum, Stadtgarten (city garden), Schützentorturm (gate tower) used as a prison until the end of the 18th century and the Höllturm (Hell Tower).
