Idyllic Island

Proud locals call their town Lindau in Bodensee. This village, they point out, is not on the lake, but rather in it. On or in, it is undoubtedly a gorgeous place to visit. And visited it is by a great number of German vacationers.

The Old Town

In addition to the lake all around, you can enjoy strolling through the narrow streets and classic architecture of this former medieval "Imperial Free City" at the crossroads of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland

Lake Boats

As you might expect, a popular activity is to take boats around the lake. You can either take scenic tours, or use the frequent (during summer, at least) boats to continue your journey. For example, we took a boat across the lake to Switzerland, subsequently re-joining the rails for our journey to the Swiss Alps.

    This is a place we plan to see next spring-but in Sept/Oct we go to Dresden & Bamberg-beer haven. You did a nice job in presenting this town.

    :-)) Thanks again, Mark :-)) And guess who will arrive in Lindau mid of June :-) Good to know that Kartoffelpuffer are being served and that there is enough to see for a long weekend :-)) Maybe I even see Swan dancing?

    Hi Mark, I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to Lindau. And you even posted your tips in the right place. There are two towns called Lindau in Bavaria and 27 VT members have chosen the wrong one (over by the Czech border).

    The Rathaus in Lindau looks interesting even from the outside. A work full of art, I should say.
