Do you need to cool off? When summer starts to heat up, leap into the cool waters of Lake Constance or try one of Lindau’s swimming pools, most of which have lake access. Brave souls jump into the lake all year round, and there are times when it certainly refreshing!

Swimming in Lindau

Whether you just want to splash about or go for a longer swim, what could be better than the crystal clear waters of Lake Constance? In winter the water temperature is between 4 and 8 degrees Celsius. In April it climbs to around 10 degrees and continues to rise over the summer. In August the water is between 20 and 22 degrees, and on hot summer days it can even be as warm as 26 degrees.

Swimming with dogs in Lake Constance

Dogs are generally allowed to swim and play in the water, but are not permitted at lidos. They can splash about happily in the lake in places where it is accessible to the public.
