Bodensee Things to Do: 17 reviews and 23 photos
Lindau is the only port in all of Bavaria, not surprisingly as Bavaria is mostly mountains and far away from any sea. But Lake Constance is also called the Swabian Sea, so the Bavarians feel they can call it a port. The larger part of the town is on the mainland, but the more beautiful one is an island, connected by a bridge. If you come by car, park directly once you've passed the bridge. Parking spaces are very hard to find. We had booked ours when booking the hotel.
It is a beautiful town, many coloured houses, the lake with the sailing boats and the mountains in the background. The old city hall is probably the most famous building, on its fassades you can see Lindau's history done in pictures. The entrance to the harbour is guarded by the Bavarian Lion, on the other side there is a lighthouse. You can climb up the lighthouse. I didn't, the day before the marathon I wanted to save all my strength and on the day after - no way I would have climbed up there then!
