Perched on the northern shore of Lake Constance, Hagnau am Bodensee is a charming fishing village in Baden-Württemberg. It’s surrounded by sprawling pear and apple orchards, as well as sun-drenched vineyards where Pinot Noir and Müller-Thurgau are grown.
Hagnau am Bodensee’s winemaking legacy is on show in Hagnauer Uferpark, a lakefront green space where an 18th-century torkel is showcased. As you marvel at its heavy oak beams, you can learn about its role in pressing grapes up until the 1950s. Adjacent is a children’s playground and Minigolf Hagnau’s family-friendly golf course.
