Island of Reichenau

Lake Boden is located in southern Germany close to the Swiss border.
A long tree-lined road stretching from the lakeshore leads to the Island of Reichenau.

Reichenau means Blessed land and the entire island with its monasteries are inscribed as a World Heritage. The island served as an important base of the Order of Saint Benedict during medieval times.
