I’m really excited to interview Jean & Patti of the band St. Lucia about Konstanz, Germany. Jean & Patti’s tips for the best things to do in Konstanz are awesome because Patti grew up in Konstanz, and they moved there together to be near family and have a home base while touring with their band. They love how there’s always something active to do, like swimming in the lake during the summer and skiing in the nearby mountains during the winter.

Getting around Konstanz

The local airport is Zurich Airport (ZRH), which is a 45-minute drive to Konstanz. There are direct trains from the airport to Konstanz.

Jean & Patti say there’s no need to rent a car because public transportation is extremely easy to use. They recommend renting a bicycle if you need to travel around the town.

If you rent a car for greater flexibility, the best rental car offers are at Avis, Budget, or Hertz.

Who are Jean-Philip Grobler and Patti Beranek?

St. Lucia has stayed faithful to what they’re best at: putting on incredible live shows everywhere from Coachella to Kansas City, producing shimmery synth-driven pop grooves, and having a damn good time doing what they love. St. Lucia has always stirred good vibes.

It started with their debut album, When The Night, which entered the Billboard Top 200 and hit #6 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Album chart. The follow-up album, Matter, yielded the hit “Dancing On Glass,” while the band collaborated with Jack Antonoff, RAC, and others. Two years later, Hyperion represented a creative and critical high watermark with praise from Billboard, who hailed the album as “buoyant,” and PopMatters who raved, “it feels revelatory.” Their latest album Utopia was released on October 7, 2022.
