RIVA - Das Hotel am Bodensee - luxury hotel in Konstanz, germany

Art Nouveau encounters eco-luxury in this lakefront Konstanz retreat

This Art Nouveau-style villa puts a contemporary spin on the classic ‘Grand Tour’ escape. Inside, RIVA - Das Hotel am Bodensee is a masterpiece of modernity, including a remarkable six-storey spiral staircase. Outside, landscaped gardens lead to head-turning views of Lake Konstanz. With an eye for sustainability, husband-and-wife team Birgit and Peter Kolb have created an elegant boutique in harmony with its handsome surroundings.

Wind down in the airy spa where treatments are as luxurious as the surroundings. Or take in the views from the rooftop pool. It’s blissful from the morning sun to dusk, when the lanterns light up. In summer, RIVA Bar’s tables spill outside to the water’s edge. When winter draws in, sip one of the hotel’s chilled champagnes or a warming whiskey beside the fire. RIVA is a gastronomic hotspot, so you’ll have a double Michelin-starred restaurant, fashionable fine dining eatery and al fresco terrace to enjoy.

Right beside the water, RIVA is tailor-made for outdoor adventures. Yachts and small boats moor near the entrance – ideal for budding sailors. To hone your swing, try one of several excellent golf courses near the hotel. During the day, Konstanz is a lovely place to meander. After dark, don your tuxedo or cocktail dress and try your luck at the local casino.

Fine Dining Restaurant Ophelia

Cuisine type: International

It is not the two stars in the Michelin Guide or the 17 points in the Gault Millau - it is the love of food celebrated by Head Chef Dirk Hoberg and his. Enjoy the modern interpretation of haute cuisine and the corresponding wine recommendations from Maitre Werner Hinze and you will understand why some people can imagine nothing better than this live-and-let-live marvel on the lake.

Head Chef Michael Kratt and his team pamper the guests with everything that the lake - the forests and fields around the hotel have to offer. The seasonal and regional specialties are complemented with one or two Mediterranean classics. Depending on the weather the glass facade is either open or closed but there is always a view of the lake. Our outdoor lounge seamlessly transitions into the garden area - which was designed by landscape designer Enzo Enea and borders the water front.

Bright and welcoming, the hotel spa invites you to escape the everyday. Warm up in the steam bath or Finnish sauna before a refreshing dip in the plunge pool. There’s a tempting menu of massage and pampering treatments to choose from. Nibble fresh fruit and sip tea as you decide or take a swim in the outdoor heated pool with panoramic views of the lake and the alps.
