Bodensee: Ride from Bregenz to Arbon, Switzerland

We are thinking of taking 2 kids (age 8 and 18 months) and riding around Bodensee. The only day which causes me concern is the ride from LINDAU, GERMANY to BREGENZ to ARBON. Which comes to a total of 45 kms which is too much for my child to do.

Need advice on the best way to tackle this. I checked out the ferries at but the routes don't appear to work for us - it would take 4.5 hours, 2 stops and 2 hours of waiting to get there by ferry.

The train needs 2 stops (at St. Margarethe and Rorschach) and I wonder how complicated it is to load 3 bikes + bike trailer + 2 kids + me and my husband on the train in a matter of minutes.

Has anyone done this route with kids? What advice do you have?

Can anyone tell me how steep the incline is on this route?
