Lake Constance ferry

Lake Constance ferry

Your connection between Friedrichshafen and Romanshorn.

The Lake Constance ferry which can also be used by pedestrians and cyclists operates between Friedrichshafen and Romanshorn all year long every hour. The ferry service is jointly operated by Bodensee Schiffsbetriebe GmbH and SBS Schifffahrt AG.

Incidentally, did you know that with the ferry between Friedrichshafen and Romanshorn you cross nearly the deepest point of lake Constance (approx. 254 metre below the lake level) and also save yourself approximately 70 road kilometres? - This just means that you can combine work with pleasure (no traffic, a hot cup of coffee, a light breeze around the gills...).

Please remember that Switzerland is not a member of EU and therefore, valid identity documents must be carried with you.
