Thick clouds hang over the mountains, the lake is churning, it is cold and rainy? Nevertheless, we have good news for you: The weather in Lindau can change again quickly – the winds at Lake Constance make sure of that. And second, there is a lot to do even when it rains – whether indoors or outdoors. Here are our bad weather tips for Lindau at Lake Constance.
Rain in Lindau? Wellness & hiking is still possible!
The view of the vastness of Lake Constance, the comforting warmth of a sauna, the relaxation after a massage or a cosmetic treatment – you can enjoy all this during a wellness break in Lindau. Several hotels on the island as well as on the mainland also invite day guests to their spa areas. If you are travelling with children, you can visit the Therme Lindau and spend a day in the indoor pool.
Or you defy the weather, put on your outdoor clothing and experience the lake in all its facets. Water, wind and clouds often create a magical atmosphere. On stormy days, the “Swabian Sea” lives up to its name – waves up to 3.50 meters high have already been sighted here. After such a walk along the shore, the tea or coffee in one of the cozy Lindau cafés tastes twice as good!
