Of course 4 hours is not enough to see everything there is to see in Lindau. But if you only have time for a flying visit you can still explore the picturesque streets of this historic island town.

Get to know the island with places of interest

Whatever the time of year, we recommend that you take a walk round the island. This gives you an introduction to the town’s most famous sights and allows you to soak up the island’s Mediterranean atmosphere and as you wander through the picturesque back streets and along the harbour promenade. We have prepared a short walking guide with brief descriptions to help you find your way around the island’s many highlights in just one hour.

A bot trip is worthwile

We then recommend that you take a boat trip – a must for all visitors to Lake Constance. The White Fleet runs regular trips from Lindau’s harbour. If you happen to be near the casino, you can also start your trip from here. Ships depart daily for a 1 or 1½-hour round trip at 11:30 am, 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm until mid-October.  After that, they depart at 12.00 noon and 2.00 pm.

If you still have some time left, take a break in one of the many harbourside cafés and restaurants and watch the boats as they come and go. It’s quite a sight!
