Baden Württemberg -->
Friedrichshafen is at the northeastern corner of the Lake Konstanz (Bodensee), near the lake's widest point. This mostly modern city was almost completely rebuilt after World War II. It has one of the longest waterfront exposures of any town along the lake. Besides that, the town's highlights are two interesting museums and the dome-capped Schlosskirche, the premier reminder of Friedrichshafen's baroque past.
