This 1000 year old church is now also a memorial to the fallen from the two World Wars. Definitely worth going into to see the huge organ as well as the frescos by Hans Holbein

A thousand-year-old church right next to the Diebsturm in Lindau. Serves also as a memorial to the fallen soldiers of Lindau during thw World Wars - and for the other victims of WW2. Respectful and quiet place.

I thought this was really neat museum/ landmark recognizing the boys and men from the town who lost their lives in WW1. Small. You won't need much time. Also great wall paintings.
