An attractive fairground, various small eateries and market stands complete the offer. Take the bus or the train to the lake festival: organizers offer visitors the possibility to return home by public transport late on Saturday night, thanks to the participation of postal buses between Arbon and St.Gallen and the Thurbo Nightliner regional railway. You may also opt for a cruise boat with music and dance on Lake Constance. Aboard you may party with stars from the Swiss popular music scene and contemplate the big fireworks at Arbon.
