The island town of Lindau in Bavaria has a long history with the first written accounts dating back as far as 882. It became an Imperial Free Town in 1275. Located on the border point of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and with the Principality of Lichtenstein less than an hour away there is plenty of choice for travelers looking for variety - Lindau has something for everyone! Our apartment is located in the beautiful old town on the island.
Known for its clean and clear water, the lake is ideal for swimming. Stroll along the beautiful harbour with cafés and restaurants, experience the small and winding cobble-stoned alleys, enjoy the Bavarian kitchen and taste the wonderful wines of the region. Among hikers, both the Alps and the family-friendly canyon 'Rappenlochschlucht' are obvious highlights.
For the children a visit to the nearby theme park 'Ravensburger Spieleland' is a given, as is a visit by cable car to the mountain peak 'Pfänder' which has an animal park and stunning views of Lindau and Lake Constance. Families visiting end of July will also be able to enjoy the lovely children's festival 'Lindauer Kinderfest' which dates back to 1655. A short trip to park 'Affenberg Salem' where you feed wild monkeys with popcorn is also very popular among kids.
For those preferring a relaxing time on beautiful Lake Constance, the century-old lake cruisers will take you to wonderful sights such as Meersburg, Konstanz and the world-renowned flower island of Mainau.
Hike the Alps in summer, but in winter ski on nearby Pfänder (10 min away) or in the great alpine resorts of St. Anton, Lech and Montafon (1 hour by car).
Christmas in Lindau is pure magic. Enjoy the wonderful ambiance as this tranquil little town is filled with beautiful decorations and the harbour is converted into an enchanting Christmas market!
