Lake Constance - Emerald in the Heart of Europe
Bodensee - Smaragd im Herzen Europas
No other European destination has as many incomingand out-going «flights» as Lake Constance: it'sthe main hub for migratory birds in Western Europe.Over 300 different species pass through everyyear: that's more than a quarter of a million birds.Lake Constance is so large that, standing on oneshore, the Earth's curvature prevents you seeing theopposite bank. This body of water is large enoughto influence the climate, and the soil round about isso fertile it creates its own ecosystem. Red-crestedpochards, whooper swans, alpine swifts - and raccoons:the lake is home to a myriad of species.This film explores the secrets above and below the surface and on the banks of this lake which linksAustria, Germany and Switzerland with no bordersin between.
