There are not many places which can offer the very special ambience of a lakeside town. Perusing the goods in a young-fashion store, or enjoying a relaxed conversation in a café with a panoramic view of the lake and the Alps - here you have the ideal combination. The docking area for ships and the katamaran has been home to the 'House of Media' K42, with its many different retail stores and cafés.
And if you haven't had enough after the shopping tour in the centre of town, the Bodensee Center offers more shopping and varied evening entertainment with different restaurants, cinema and a bowling centre - and after the shops are closed Friedrichshafen is a great place for going out and enjoying yourself.
Weekly markets offer local produce and specialities of the Lake Constance region and a colourful hustle and bustle. Tuesday mornings on the Charlottenhof and Friday mornings on the Adenauerplatz. There is also the culinary market on the Adenauerplatz every Saturday from 9am to 2pm with mediterrean flair and seasonal highlights in every month.
From 25 November to 21 December 2016 the smell of mulled wine and gingerbread lies in the air at the Christmas market on the Buchhornplatz (Buchhorn plaza) - directly located at Lake Constance in a lovely setting of snow-covered alps. This romantic village with its festively decorated stalls invites you to enjoy and discover german christmas tradition. Dining options include a variety of local and international cuisine, such as hot spiced wine, sausages and fish. More
