A 1000 year old church, that sheds light on the recent history of the wars and politics of Lindau. Great architecture and photo opportunity. Worth a quick visit in this interesting and rustic town.

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.
