Nice views from top, but debatable whether it's worth the walk versus cruising through all the small street and seeing what Lindau has to offer. Loved seeing the "Rapunzel hair" hanging from one of the upper windows. Not sure if that seasonal or permanent.

This is an interesting building/lighthouse dating from the 13th century. It used to be a prominent part of the former city fortifications. It was a bit tacky outside to say the least, with a baloon maker and a juggler on stilts!

Decline to climb the lighthouse - attendant busy fulling on a fag at the entrance - whole thing rather off-putting

Another site next to the Lighthouse and Bavarian Lion Sculpture when in Lindau. You cannot miss it when you are at the sea side.

You can walk along the boats, to the tower. You can enter it. It's not wheelchair accessible. So I didn't see the inside

Just go and enjoy. It's interesting, there are weekly Adult Fairy Tale productions for an hour. Well worth a look round, outside and in, especially if it's wet - or too hot.

I very much enjoy classic fairy stories always have done and having travelled through the Black Forest to Lindau I was overjoyed to find this quaint little tower that gave a nod to these tales. Its fun for adults who grew up with the stories...More
