About Constance towers black clouds. Gusts of wind bring the lake to a boil. Hectic the storm irrlichtert warning of Immenstaad. The two surfers appear in the Manzeller Bay, mount the sail and put to sea. "We, Friedrich Friedrichshafen are a sporty Völklein," says Peter sausage. The retired teacher has completed a month ago, the last ski tour of the season, now he stands at the entrance of the beach of Fischbach in the outskirts of Friedrichshafen, Germany, and announces: "as soon As the temperatures rise a bit, I jump a day into the lake."

Promenade, secluded riverside paths, a variety of beaches and bays: Friedrichshafen from depends entirely on the water. Frank but Bach has made his passion into a profession: From may to end of September he tours with a 40'000 Euro expensive rib inflatable boat on the lake of Constance.
The Brave can try the Tubes from
In the Wake of the 100-HP machine: a yellow plastic banana, as we know from Rimini, or up to three Tubes, a kind of tubing car oversized Load. On the swimming a good-humoured audience, the addictive thrill of bodies. "I can put up with my maneuvers everyone into the water," says Bach. "Of course I'm watching the people go is never a risk."

Kersting listens into the Altläufen shot through with Wild, listening to the singing of the Warbler and the bright cry of the Kingfisher. But in spite of the concert, no relief is shown on the face of the scientist. "Where is the Nightingale?", he asks. "She should be here by now."
