  Mangturm, Lindau
by Paul2001

The Mangturm is the most important landmark of Lindau. This fortified lighthouse was built in 1200. It was designed to protect the harbour and resembles more a watchtower than a lighthouse. What is particularly striking about the tower is the multicoloured tiling on the roof. I was mezzmerized by the various colours and seemed to have taken a dozen pictures of them. For one Euro you can climb to the roof of the tower and take in the view. The hours of admission vary greatly throughout the year.
