We chose to visit Lindau Insel on the way back to Munich from visiting the Schwarzwald. It was perfect for a half day trip with convenient parking garages on the island. The scenery is lovely and the old town is beautiful. Spending several hours walking...More

This place is so picturesque: you stroll round an attractive harbour, enjoying views across the lake to Austria and Switzerland. Like a prettier version of Monaco but without the traffic

I really wanted to comment on the harbor area and the lake shore wrapping around the old town. Since there is no such listing, I'll just use this one for the New Lighthouse. The New Lighthouse, with its strategic location, is a sight to behold,...More

Climb the lighthouse stairs ( not difficult ) for great views of the harbour and lion . A boat entering the harbour framed by the lion & lighthouse also makes a great pic .

Worth the few Euros it costs to go up to the lookout deck. What is really interesting is that the inside of the lighthouse is wood, including the circular staircase! Amazing carpentry and engineering. Gorgoeous small habor, the towns steeples, hotels and train station nearby....More

Very quiet city. Nice for a half day trip. Not a lot of English spoken but you can get by. Visit the lion statue, light house and town hall. Wander the streets and enjoy the views of the lake.

Lindau is definitely more known and promoted than other Bodensee towns and the lighthouse is one of the focus sightseeing places for Lindau visitors. Even during off-peak season it is crowded, so be prepared for a lot of sightseeing competitors. The parkings close to the...More

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!
