Because it practically lies within Switzerland, directly adjacent to the Swiss border, Konstanz was not bombed by the Allied Forces during WW II. The city left all its lights on at night, and thus fooled the bombers into thinking it was actually Switzerland. The painted buildings are just fascinating...so much detail and so well preserved.
The kuchen and coffee were definitely high on our list of favorite things in Germany...ok, ok...one of MY favorite things!
