    A particular eye-catcher in the port of Constance is the concrete statue "Imperia", which was erected in 1993 and is supposed to be a satirical reminder of the Council of Constance (1414–1418).

    The cities of Friedrichshafen and Ravensburg can be reached from here by express bus lines that run several times a day on weekdays. In summer there is a private passenger boat trip from Konstanz-Seestrasse via Bodensee-Therme, the Swiss Bottighofen and back to Konstanz-Hafen.

    At the beach promenade it is a lot of fun to stroll around in the dusk and to eat something delicious; if you like, you can talk to nice people.

    the catamaran to Friedrichshafen also carries wheels. Also the normal boat, if you are not in a hurry.

    The port figure "Imperia" is the absolute highlight in the port of Constance. You can stay here for a while and let your gaze wander, or change the side of the lake.

    The Imperia sculpture, the many cafes and the beer garden offer a beautiful panorama of Lake Constance.

    It is always worth visiting the harbor master's office (green building at berth 6), where you can sit, drink and eat well.

    The sculptor Peter Lenk writes about his sculpture "Imperia" in the harbor entrance:
    "A port figure turns high above the lake as a guide for the captains -" IMPERIA ", a symbol of female welfare. She carries medieval dignitaries on her hands and shows them the city, which has long enjoyed the reputation of a cultural metropolis, as New York, Berlin and Stuttgart were still foxholes.
    At the time of the council in the middle of the 15th century, around 1000 respectable pretty women tried to ensure the well-being of the secular and spiritual elite in Europe and founded the Konstanz tourist office with the hosts. "

    The harbor is part of the exploration. Like the city center. Many attractions. Time planning is worthwhile.

    The work of art here is the satirical sculpture of Imperia by the artist Peter Lenk from 1993 with reference to the Council of Constance, which rotates on its own axis.

    It depicts a courtesan with a kind of fool's cap, a deep neckline and lush proportions. Two small naked men are sitting on her hands. The man in the right hand shows a king with a crown and orb. The figure in the left hand shows a Pope.

    The port of Constance is right in the center of the city. The Imperia greets you at the harbor entrance - the statue made by the sculptor Peter Lenk has meanwhile become the symbol of the city of Konstanz. Due to its central location, the port of Constance is a suitable starting point for excursions, shopping and many other tourist activities.

    On a pedestal, which consists of the remains of a former pier tower, rises a 9 m high, 18 ton heavy, cast concrete figure of a scantily clad woman with a fool's cap on her head. She carries two naked male figures on her outspread arms. In one hand, with crossed legs, sits a figure with a papal tiara, in the other hand, with legs apart, a figure with an imperial crown, holding an imperial orb. The female figure stands on a round table that rotates once every four minutes on its own axis.The base of the Imperia is formed by the oldest level measuring station, not only on Lake Constance, but all of Baden-Württemberg. It went into operation in 1816 in what was then the Molenturm and was preserved even after this tower was demolished in 1890. The Imperia statue created by the artist Peter Lenk was erected on April 24, 1993 on the remains of this tower.

    A wonderful long-termed harbor with a very nice port entrance. There is almost always something going on during the day and in the evening.
