The Lake Dwellings are comfortably reached by bus (tourist or regular), ferry, boat, train, and even by bicycle or on foot. No matter what your plans, Unteruhldingen is a worthwhile destination to be included in your holiday travels.

Navigation: Unteruhldingen, Ehbachstraße.

The map to the right below shows the three trails that offer an enjoyable walk through nature. The trails are running along the Poststraße (middle), Schulstraße (left), and along Ehbachweg (right). Information boards and „Time Islands“ (yellow dots) along the way, describe the history of Unteruhldingen and the landscape. From the parking facilities at the end of the village, a "Kurbähnle" (shuttle train) takes visitors to the Harbor.

The next bus stops for regular busses are "Unteruhldingen, Meersburger Straße" (Seelinie Friedrichshafen-Überlingen) and "Unteruhldingen, Hafen/Pfahlbauten" (Harbor/Lakedwellings) (Adventurebus Salem-Unteruhldingen). The regional transportation office, Verkehrsverbund "Bodo", offers discounts for groups.

The world-famous Rococo church Birnau, the Affenberg (ape mountain), the Salem castle, the old Meersburg, the Lake Dwellings and the Island Mainau, are the six top ten attractions you can visit at Lake Constance within less than a 10 km radius.
