LINDAU

LINDAU THE CITY ISLAND OF THE BODENSEE

  

The old town of Lindau is located on a 70 hectare Island on Lake Constance (Bodensee) and thanks to its centuries-old buildings, the lively squares and picturesque streets, it radiates an irresistible charm.

 

 

Arriving from the mainland, after a short walk on the connecting bridge, you are suddenly immerse in history with the entrance to the main square: the "marktplatz". It is here that the historic heart of Lindau lies, and where some of the most important town monuments stand.

 

The centre is dominated by the main street "maximilianstrasse": boutiques and shops open along a street, complimented by Gothic and Renaissance houses, frescoed facades that alternate with elegant palaces.

 

 

"A historic island of unmistakable charm: washed by the crystal-clear Constance lake

 

Arriving at the port you cannot miss the famous lakeside promenade with its restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy a wonderful view of the bay.

Here you will find two of the city’s prominent landmarks: the old lighthouse and the Bavarian lion.

 

The "Mangturm" is an elegant medieval building with a steep roof, while the lion is a stone sculpture that symbolizes the pride and royalty of the Bavarian people.

Lindau is a jewel on Lake Constance: the ideal stopover for a boat trip on a sunny day or a romantic evening immersed in the charm of yesteryear.
