Lake Constance (German: Bodensee) is one of the major lakes in Europe. Covering an area of 11,500 sq km, it is the third largest freshwater lake in Central Europe. Lake Constance is bordered by Germany to the north, Switzerland to the south and Austria to the east. Germany has the longest shoreline on Lake Constance among the three countries.

Lake Constance measures 63 km (39 mi) long and 14 km (8.7 mi) at its widest point. The River Rhine flows right through Lake Constance, so it both feeds and drains the lake.

Lake Constance was formed during the Ice Age by the Rhine Glacier. The depth of Lake Constance is less on the southeastern part due to sediments carried in from the Rhine and other rivers.

Today Lake Constance is an importance source of drinking water for the population of southwestern Germany. A number of cities are located on its shore, the major ones being Konstanz in Germany and Bregenz in Austria.
