The Bodensee (Lake Constance) is the largest lake for three nations: Germany, Switzerland and Austria. It is a source of drinking water, it moderates the climate so that orchards flourish on the hills surrounding it and of course it is a favorite area for tourists. The zep reminds one of the zeppelin factory in Friedrichshafen. The weather can change any minute so that boating accidents are frequent. Surface area: over half a million square kilometers. Se-tenant strip of 2016
