Geography

The district is located at the northern shore of the Lake Constance (German: Bodensee), which also gave the district its name. The landscape covered by the district is called Oberschwäbisches Hügelland and Westallgäuer Hügelland, and as the name suggest it is mostly hilly landscape.

Partnerships

The district has a partnership with the Muldentalkreis in Saxony, Germany, as well as with the Polish district Czestochowa.

Coat of arms

Coat of arms The blue color as well as the three wavy lines at the bottom of the coat of arms represent the Lake Constance. The wheel derives from the coat of arms of the Lords of Markdorf and Raderach, but it also represents the industry in the district.
