Picnic on the Island of Reichenau

Let's bring our friends & families, homemade & healthy food/beverages to share, blankets to sit on, swimsuits, games, & musical instruments for a fun day together. This is not a BBQ, so please only bring food that is already cooked. We'll meet at the Schlosspark, which is on the right side at the end of Thurgauweg (about 250m from where the ships land) and borders directly on the lake (has smooth stone area leading into the water, so it's good for swimming). See map at http://www.reichenau.de/index.php?id=231&L=2. Also seewww.Reichenau.de for info on getting there by train/bus or boat. Or you can even paddle across the Rhine from CH and land right at the park (look for the tall trees). It's a 30-minute bike ride along the railroad track path from Constance or take your bike on the train to Reichenau Bhf and pedal the last 5 km on the beautiful path out to the island. For the unathletic, you can also drive to the boat landing area and park there (which is where the toilets and kiosk are).

From Schaffhausen there are direct boat (via Stein am Rhein) and train (via Singen) to Reichenau, we are joining again as a cohosted event with the English speaking group of Constance.

    You referring the ships landing area of Schiffsanlegestelle I assume? Since they land on the other side of the island. Also, if you could post your mobile number so as to not have any chance of missing you guys.. :)

      Yes, it's the landing area across from Mannenbach, CH. My cell:[masked], but there's no chance of missing us - the park is small.

    The Constance group looks forward to seeing you on Sunday! Be sure to bring some bathing shoes since the path into the lake is slippery.
