Going out in Konstanz and Kreuzlingen

Take time to unwind after hitting the books Sometimes it’s great to clear your mind and relax while meeting people, enjoying a cool drink and listening to good music. Who knows? It may even turn into an all-nighter… Although Konstanz and Kreuzlingen are no big cities, they still offer a lot in the way of bars, clubs and discos. Julia, who is from Konstanz, is happy to share the top locations with you.

Up for a cosy vinothek, hip bar or even a bout at the disco? Konstanz and Kreuzlingen have a great range of options for you and your friends on your evening out. (Photo: Unsplash / Antoine Julien).

Tips for your night out

Closing time in Konstanz

Party around the clock? Konstanz, too, has a closing time. On weeknights bars usually close at 1:00, on the weekend they are open until 3:00. The larger clubs in the industrial area are sometimes open until 5:00 during the week, but not every day.

Getting around Konstanz at night

Your best bet for getting around Konstanz at night is to use your bike. You only need about 10-15 minutes to cycle from the city centre or the Swiss border to clubs in the industrial area. But take care: The police regularly check whether cyclists are still sober enough to ride, for example, at the bike bridge. If you won’t be cycling, then you can take either a taxi or the “Nachtschwärmer” night bus that goes around once a night.

Border-hopping bar-hopping

If you’ll be hopping between German and Swiss locations, make sure to bring along your personal ID and some cash in both currencies. If you’re coming from Germany, remember that Swiss prices are always a good bit higher so you don’t get sticker shock buying a cocktail.
