Do you fancy exploring Lindau and Lake Constance from the water? If you’re the sporty type, why not try pedalling, rowing, canoeing, kayaking or paddleboarding around Lindau island? Or if you like to take it a little easier, rent a motorboat or electric boat.

Rent pedalos

How about pedalling across the lake in a pedalo – you can choose from a racing car or a swan, which both come with a water slide and sun awning. Pedalos can be rented from Bootsvermietung Lindau by the bridge, at Hodrius by the Inselhalle and at Franz at the Hotel Bad Schachen.

Motorboating without a licence

If you would simply like to glide over the water and relax, then rent a motorboat or electric boat from Bootsvermietung Lindau or Hodrius. You can drive boats with engines up to 6 HP on the lake without a boatmaster’s licence.

Paddling across Lake Constance

Or paddle across the lake in a canoe or kayak – a great way to explore its more remote corners. Whether it’s a romantic sunset trip for two or a team event, you can rent canoes and kayaks from Park-Camping Lindau or from Wesarg’s Canoe & Trekking Company. It’s a good idea to take a course with Wesarg’s Canoe & Trekking Company or Timm Stade so that you understand the difference between canoes, kayaks and Canadian canoes and learn how to do an Eskimo roll.
