An historic island with distinctive charm located in the crystal clear waters of the lake, surrounded by soft green countryside set against a backdrop of mountains.
Centuries-old buildings, historical squares and romantic alleyways lend the town an almost Mediterrnean flair.
The old town of Lindau is situated on an island in Lake Constance measuring approx. 70 hectares.Certainly the best-known sight in Lindau is its harbour entrance with the Bavarian lion and the new lighthouse, backed by the extensive waters of Lake Constance and views of the distant Alps.
Lindau is the most south-westerly town in Bavaria, and one of the region's leading tourist centres. This historical town, set on an island in Lake Constance, is linked to its leafy suburbs on the mainland by a bridge and a railway embankment.
It's great to wander through the narrow alleyways of the old town, past the artistically painted town hall and the lovingly restored half-timbered houses. The lakeside promenade really is still a promenade, where people stroll to see and be seen. The view of the (possibly snow-capped) mountains of Switzerland is enough to set your pulse racing. The spa concert performances held on the lakeside promenade on sultry summer evenings are a treat for eyes and ears alike.
