Constanzer Wirthaus, Constance, Germany

After our very rainy day in the Austrian Alps, we decided to spend the next day on Lake Constance, as the weather looked like it would be much better there… and it was!

On our way, we drove through Switzerland, through beautiful, rolling fields and charming Swiss houses. On the way, we found a pumpkin sale on the side of the road…

As we drove in Konstanz, we wanted to find a restaurant overlooking the river to have lunch… and the Warthaus, which claimed to be a large beer hall/ restaurant, was such a restaurant, with good reviews to boot!

So we parked ourselves and got a table outside….

We started with a mixed salad. I love mixed salads in Switzerland and Austria, with all sorts of different veggies mixed in and a creamy dressing… It turns out they’re exactly the same in Germany 🙂

Andre went for the weiner schnitzel, served with potato salad… and once again, it was spot on.

I went a bit more exotic and went for the ox-tail with onions and peppers in a tangy sauce and herbed butter… with roasted potatoes in a delicious crust. How was it? Okay. The best part was the deliciously roast potatoes, that tasted as they had been roasted several times.. crunchy on the outside and really soft inside… topped with that herb butter… mmm. The rest of the dish was fine.

Then, we napped by the lake as our feathered friends walked by…

What a beautiful day on the lake, after much chillier weather in Austria earlier in the weekend!
