Yes that’s right, there is a place you can go in Europe where you will be outside the borders of any country. Where you may ask? Lake Konstanz! The lake shares land borders with Germany, Switzerland, and Austria, but if you take a boat out on the lake, you will not be within the borders of any of the three countries.
Before I left for Europe, I honestly didn’t know what there was to do in southern Germany. I figured there were some sights to see, but I didn’t know what they were. So when my friend excitedly told me that we would be visiting Neuschwanstein Castle, I feigned excitement and quickly Googled what I was about to see. I can’t believe that I didn’t know about something as beautiful as this castle!
Perhaps the title of this post is a bit misleading. If you’ve already been abroad, especially to other places in Europe, then you probably won’t find the tiny town of Bad Säckingen awe-inspiring. However, it was the first international place I ever saw, and for that reason, it will always be one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever seen.
