Arbon is located on the southern side of Lake Constance and has a particularly beautiful old town. The well-maintained houses date back to several cultural epochs. Arbon was already a popular town in Roman times with direct access to the lake. The prehistoric pile dwellings found here are part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage. Part of them is exhibited in the Arbon Historical Museum, which is located on the Lake Constance Cycle Path. The pile dwellings around the Alps date back to around 3400 BC. Arbon has a well-developed network of hiking trails in the surrounding area, some of which are also popular for quad biking.
