The future has already begun
The city of Constance has become shopper’s heaven. Citizens and guests can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere, the special panache of a town that doesn’t stand still to rely on its glorious past, a town that has made its first steps into the future thanks to new economic, cultural and environmental concepts. Neighbouring Switzerland and the mutual fascination is definitely of importance to the aspiring economic and commercial centre. The shopping mall Lago has made a great contribution to the city’s reputation beyond its frontiers. In the meantime the initial worry that retail business in Constance will suffer because of the implantation of one major mall has disappeared. In the contrary: gastronomy, shops and all other businesses have profited from the numbers of shoppers who come to shop at Lago Mall, and who continue to stroll through town to discover more shops and restaurants. Quality of life also means to have a liberty of choice.
A light that shines
As far as variety is concerned, retail in Constance has it all. Promoted by City Marketing Constance, it has earned a reputation well beyond the city limit. On the initiative of "Customer King", open Sundays and dedicated traffic service are only some of the marketing activities. Citizens do participate in these projects, especially with lighting concepts in the "dark" months of autumn and winter.

The political, economic and administrational authorities make great efforts to support Constance’s reputation of a cosmopolitan and popular city – simply a place where one likes to live and shop.
