There has been a dahlia garden between Lindau-Reutin and Streitelsfingen since 2006. It began as a little hobby, but it has now become a major element of Lindau’s garden landscape: the Lindau Dahlia Show.
Paradise of dahlias
From mid-August to mid/end-October more than 800 dahlia varieties are displayed by Stefan Seufert and his team of Lindau schoolchildren and volunteers.
It all began in Oberreitnau in 2002. From being a hobby, with about 60 dahlia varieties in a little allotment, since 2006 this has become a major project in Lindau-Reutin, where the Dahlia Show is now located. If you would like to meet Princess Irene of Prussia, Otto Waalkes and Stefanie Hertel, then you’re in the right place – some of these 800 dahlia varieties have been named after famous people. The dahlias often grow more than 2 metres tall and their flowers can have diameters of up to 30 cm.
Visit of the Lindau Dahlia Show
The Lindau Dahlia Show is open daily from mid-August to mid/end October, from dawn to dusk. Admission is free. Parking is available directly outside the garden. Unfortunately there is no parking for tour buses. Please contact Mr Seufert before you visit.
Tip: We recommend sturdy footwear as there are no paved paths. When the weather is dry, the paths are also suitable for wheelchairs. If you would like to catch a bus to the garden from Lindau island take bus number 1 Oberhochsteg and get off at the Lugeck stop. It is then a 10-minute walk along Oberreutiner Weg to the junction with Büchelewiesweg. Please be aware that the show is on private land. The owners accept no liability.
