There are seasons that are inseparably linked to a special atmosphere – one of them is the pre-Christmas period. The anticipation of the holidays, the mixture of hustle and bustle, cheerful get-togethers and quiet, contemplative moments – all this makes the weeks leading up to Christmas so unique.
In Lindau, the pre-Christmas season is particularly atmospheric: When the narrow streets of the island shine with warm lights and many houses are festively decorated, then every walk becomes a romantic experience.

Christmas market and Advent city tours

A special highlight is the Lindau Harbour Christmas. The romantic Christmas market along the lake promenade and with the Mangturm in its center awaits you with hot mulled wine, fragrant cookies, glowing Christmas decorations and seasonal products. There is also an extensive supporting program for young and old. In 2021 the Lindauer Hafenweihnacht is open from November 25 to December 19, each Thursday to Sunday from 11 am to 9 pm.

Also city tours during Advent are a very special experience. In addition, the glamorously decorated old town invites you with its gastronomy and shopping offers. Do your Christmas shopping in peace and quiet in the winding alleys of the island and on MaximilianstraĂźe or in the Lindaupark shopping center on the mainland.

During the pre-Christmas period, special seasonal performances are also held in the Lindau City Theater: Whether comedy, drama or the dancing puppets of the Lindauer Marionettenoper – a visit to the theatre is always worthwhile!


Relax and recharge your batteries

Let yourself be inspired and fascinated on the days of Advent – and above all: take your time. Because that is exactly what these weeks are all about: Enjoying the special moments to the full – whether with family, with friends or even on your own. For your very personal moments of contemplation – you are very welcome in Lindau.

You can switch off and recharge your batteries in the spa and wellness areas of the Hotel Bayerischer Hof, the Hotel Bad Schachen or the YachtHotel Helvetia: relax with a massage, treat yourself to a sauna or enjoy the sweet idleness.

Even if the fog creeps over the Lindau island and swallows up all the sounds, a walk through the narrow streets has its own romantic-melancholic charm. Whether you take a walk around the island or walk along the shore of Lake Constance towards Lindenhofpark is up to you – same as the choice of a nice cafĂ© or restaurant to warm up afterwards.
