The most photogenic sight in Lindau doesn't disappoint. Make the climb up the lighthouse and you will be rewarded with great views of the harbor, lake, town, and snow peaked alps. Enjoy!

A postcard view of Lindau. We were lucky enough to be able to see it from our hotel room. Whilst there the lake froze over and it looked stunning. Could do with some explanation in the harbour about what the significance of the lion is
