Buildings with centuries-old facades, alleys full of stories… parks to linger in, villa streets to stroll along… Lonely bays with impressive views, small squares with a lively atmosphere… You can discover all this and much more in Lindau.

The island on the eastern shore of Lake Constance is about 70 hectares in size and thus the second largest island in the “Swabian Sea”. The old town with its winding alleys and medieval buildings has a very special charm that many consider Mediterranean. The Bavarian Lion and Germany’s southernmost lighthouse have been welcoming visitors to the port since the 19th century.

But Lindau is not only an island city but also a garden city. Even on the island with its limited space and compact, historic buildings, there are parks, such as the Stadtgarten and other green refuges, some of which offer a wide view over Lake Constance. The Lindau mainland offers even more and welcomes you with extensive shore areas and attractive, historic parks.

By the way, the name “Lindau” means “island where lime trees grow” and has been documented since 882. The city coats of arms and seals, dating back to the 13th century, show a lime tree or a lime leaf and remind us of the long history of Lindau.
