There is this cool place right across the border from Konstanz, where you can feed popcorn to monkeys....

www.affenberg-salem.de/

A nice trip would be to feed the monkeys and head over to Friedrichshafen (probably another 30min drive) for lunch. They have a fantastic lakeside promenade with excellent restaurants.

There is also an observation tower which you are allowed to go on for free.

as well as the Zeppelin Museum (airship museum)

I've never been to the museum..but I went to feed the monkeys and climbed the tower...it was good fun.
Be careful on the observation tower if it is at all breezy. You can feel it swaying. Great views though

The Zeppelin museum is well worth a visit. Going into the reconstruction of part of The Hindenberg was one of the highlights. It also includes a small Art Gallery.
