Contributor: Mario Kornmesser

Ruppaner is the "local" beer of Konstanz. The attached restaurant has a magnificent view of the Überlingersee, and it's a great place to relax and have a beer or three. It's an easy 700-meter walk from the Staat-Autofähre bus stop on the #1 line. Beers run between €2 and €3 depending on size.
