Art Nouveau encounters eco-luxury in this lakefront Konstanz retreat
This Art Nouveau-style property puts a contemporary spin on the classic ‘Grand Tour’ escape. Inside, the RIVA - Das Hotel am Bodensee is a masterpiece of modernity, including a remarkable six-storey spiral staircase. Outside, landscaped gardens and terraces lead to head-turning views of Lake Konstanz. With an eye for sustainability, husband-and-wife team Birgit and Peter Kolb have created an elegant boutique retreat in harmony with its handsome surroundings.
Wind down in the airy spa where treatments are as harmonising as the surroundings. Or take in the views from the heated rooftop pool. It’s blissful from the morning sun to dusk, when the lanterns light up. In summer, RIVA Bar’s tables spill outside to the water’s edge. When winter draws in, sip one of the hotel’s chilled champagnes or a warming whiskey beside the open fireplace. The RIVA is a gastronomic hotspot, so you’ll have a double Michelin-starred restaurant, fashionable fine dining eatery and al fresco terrace to enjoy.Read more[SPLIT]Read less
Located right beside the shore of Lake Constance, the RIVA is tailor-made for outdoor adventures. Yachts and small boats moor near the entrance – ideal for budding sailors. To hone your swing, try one of several excellent golf courses near the hotel. During the day, Konstanz is a lovely place to meander. After dark, don your tuxedo or cocktail dress and try your luck at the local casino or explore the historic old town.
Enjoy your stay!
