Immenstaad am Bodensee is a municipality in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, on the north shore of Lake Constance near the Austrian and Swiss borders. It is not to be confused with the similarly named town of Immenstadt, approximately 85 km East in Bavaria.
The first documented reference to Immenstaad dates to the year 1094, when the Bavarian Duke Welf IV acquired the possessions of Weingarten Abbey. The controlling authorities were strongly factionalized until the Fürstenberg family bought the entire town in the late 18th century. In 1806 the town became a border town in the state of Baden-Württemberg.
