Romanshorn, Switzerland may not have the big mountains or shopping malls. It has its own charm. Here is Lake Constance, the third largest lake in Central Europe and across the other shore is Friedrichshafen, Germany. There are scheduled boats ferrying visitors across but while we were there, it was so foggy, you couldn’t see the other side.
While, winter isn’t the best time to see this place, I see plenty of beauty here. I can only imagine the different visceral once summer is here.
The misty landscape and soft focus look added an ethereal atmosphere to Romanshorn. I reckoned we were the only visitors there during that time because the locals kept staring at us. Maybe they thought we were lost, hehe.
The marina was completely frozen and the ducks were quiet. Frost covered the stones and if you look closer, there is actually a lighthouse in the top picture.
It takes about half an hour by train from St Gallen to reach Romanshorn. From Romanshorn, there is a direct train to Luzern – The Voralpen Express – one of the most spectacular train journey. Passing by rural landscape and captivating scenery, watch for the moment when the train cuts across the lakes. The journey takes about 2 hours and 45 minutes.
