If you are looking for a café in which to sit and enjoy the sunshine, and maybe do a spot of maths, then you will find plenty in the old town. In particular there are many on Marktstätte (as seen in the photo above). If you are looking for somewhere quieter, try the branches of the bookshop chain Osiander (upstairs at Rosgartenstraße 29, and in the rear garden at Kanzleistraße 5). You should not be short of options!


On the map you will find plenty of supermarkets, bakeries, shopping malls, pharmacies/drugstores and department stores all over Konstanz.
