The island town of LindauThe island town of Lindau

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. A walk along the harbour, with the mountains    of Switzerland as a backdrop, is stunning.

The island town of Lindau is easily reached by car, bus or boat. Arriving in Lindau on the steamer from Bregenz, for example, you will pass the Bavarian lion standing guard over the harbour entrance, and get a fabulous view of the town!

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.

The old town centre of Lindau has largely retained its medieval character, and offers a plethora of historical gems to visit. One of the most important of these is the Old Town Hall in the very heart of the island. It’s great to wander through the alleyways of the old town, past the brightly coloured façade of the town hall and the lovingly restored timber-framed houses. The lakeside promenade really is a promenade; a place for walking, for people-watching, to see and to be seen. In the evening why not visit the Lindau casino, where you can try your luck at roulette or play the one-armed bandits?

The island town of Lindau can be easily reached by car, bus or boat. The best way of getting here is definitely by boat from Bregenz. As you sail into the harbour past the Bavarian Lion guarding the entrance, you will be treated to an unrivalled view of the town.

The view of the Austrian Alps, maybe still covered with snow, is guaranteed to make your heart beat faster.
