Konstanz (English typically Constance) is a university town of around 80,000 inhabitants on the shore of Lake Constance in the south-west corner of Germany, bordering Switzerland.
Konstanz is situated on the river Rhine which starts in the Swiss Alps and runs through Lake Constance.
North of the river lies the larger part with residential areas and industrial estates; while south of the river is the old town which houses the administrative centre and shopping facilities.
To the south, the old town is grown together with Kreuzlingen, a Swiss town.
The first traces of civilisation in Konstanz date back to the late stone age.
