A heated pool, direct lake access, unique architecture and an outstanding location in the middle of a private park make the lido at Hotel Bad Schachen one of its kind on Lake Constance.
The legendary lido, an Art Nouveau gem that is registered as listed property, was designed by the world renowned Munich architect Max Littmann in 1924. Built in a picturesque private park as a replacement for the previous wooden bath house, the lido is without a doubt the loveliest of its kind.
The Parkstrandbad: An architectural Gem
When you pass through the u-shaped building to the pool, you enter a place that is a world of its own. The one-storey building has three wings. The side wings end in open pavilions with a fascinating hip roof, while the columned hall with its semi-circular midsection is open to the lakeside. The minimalistic architectural elements, the use of the colour white and the flanking side wings allow the breath-taking panorama of Lake Constance and the Alps to take centre stage. At the time of its construction, the pool was the only one on Lake Constance that permitted mixed bathing, something that was then considered revolutionary.
Swimming in Style
With pleasant temperatures and good weather, the park lido continues to provide guests with a historical setting for bathing. In addition to hotel guests, the high society of the Lindau region meets here. Swim your laps in the heated pool (10 x 20 metres) or in the refreshing water of Lake Constance. After your swim, you can enjoy a drink or a snack on the airy patio and relax in a lounger with a unique view of Lake Constance and the Alps.
