Fußach, In der Schanz Lagoon - In der Schanz The entire Lake Constance shore in the Rhine delta is a conservation area so it has become an important protected habitat for many species of bird. It is particularly between late summer and spring that the extent becomes apparent to which the lagoon and the bays near the mouth of the Rhine are used as resting grounds by migrating birds.  

Author’s recommendation

The RheinSchauen Museum in Lustenau provides an excellent overview of how the Rhine is being regulated. Information: Verein Rheinschauen T +43 (0)5577/20539, www.rheinschauen.at

Destination

Fußach, In der Schanz

Turn-by-turn directions

At the Fußach Rheindamm (Rhine Dam), visitors can walk from the Wanderparkplatz (car park for walkers) along the roadway at the base of the embankment towards the lagoon. After the bend in the projecting estuary, it’s another 20-minute walk along the top of the embankment that presents beautiful views across the Obersee (Upper Lake Constance) and to the island town of Lindau. The route then follows the footpath that branches off to the left and continues along the west side of the lagoon – along the shore of the Fußacher Bucht (Fußach Bay) – before returning to the starting point.
