When the hustle and bustle of the summer days slowly subsides, the horn of the excursion boats sounds less often and the streets become empty again, a somewhat calmer time begins, especially on the island. Whoever then visits Lindau gets to know it from its other, no less fascinating side.
Relaxation, peace and contemplation
In the winter months, the hour strikes for those who appreciate peace and relaxation even at low temperatures. Lindau has a lot to offer in winter, too – both outside and inside.
Nature often creates a magical atmosphere here. On the shore, the storm ruffles your hair, in the parks, huge old trees give you a feeling of peaceful silence. And when 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. If you warm up after such a day in one of the numerous cozy cafés, the hot tea, cocoa or coffee tastes twice as good.
A visit to a spa or sauna also promises relaxation for body and soul – numerous hotels invite you to their modern wellness areas. Whether it’s relaxing massages, cosmetic treatments or a visit to the sauna – in winter you can switch off and recharge your batteries in Lindau at Lake Constance.
Highlight in winter: Lindau Harbor Christmas
On the Advent weekends, the lake promenade of Lindau on Lake Constance is transformed into a winter fairy tale world: the romantic Christmas market at the harbor invites you to a pre-Christmas shopping tour. Against the backdrop of snow-covered mountains, the lights of the market traders sparkle, and the alleys are romantically illuminated all over the island.
Also in the Christmas season in Lindau: “Class instead of mass”. Goods from fair trade and products from the region make buying presents on the christmas market at the harbour as well as in the many boutiques on the island a lasting joy.
On the stage at the harbor, different artists perform every Advent day to put you in a festive mood with music and dance. And do not forget the food. There are many culinary delights – sweet and savory!
Variety of leisure activities: Winter sports around Lindau
During a combined city and winter holiday you will quickly reach your destination from Lindau: The trip to numerous ski areas often take no longer than one to one and a half hours thanks to the good location. The ski busses or trains go to the skiing areas of the Arlberg, Montafon, Klostertal and Brandnertal as well as to the Allgäu.
If you like to sledge or are keen on snowshoe hiking, you also have the opportunity to do so in the immediate vicinity. And those who like to venture onto the black ice are at the right address on the artificial ice rink at the Lindauer Eichwald.
As you can see, even in frosty weather you can choose from a variety of leisure activities – and after that relax in the sauna.
Hotel or pension, private room or camping site?
Of course you can also choose from a variety of accommodations in Lindau on Lake Constance during the cold season. Hoteliers as well as landlords of pensions and private rooms are looking forward to your visit!
There is even something for real outdoor fans: Hard-boiled nature lovers can – by prior arrangement by telephone – also stay overnight in winter at the Gitzenweiler Hof campsite.
And a visit to Lindau in winter is worth it: where many people crowd during peak times in summer, you often have better views during the winter months. So you can now stroll through small galleries, visit art auctions or explore the island’s boutiques at your leisure. Without hurry, with pleasure – take as much time as you like to discover your personal favorite place in Lindau.
