The network of Lindau Tourism
Lindau Tourism is integrated into numerous tourism networks whose common goal is to raise the profile of Lake Constance as a destination on a national and international level.
German Lake Constance Tourism GmbH
Since 2013, the German shore of Lake Constance has had an independent tourism company in the form of Deutsche Bodensee Tourismus GmbH (DBT), which acts as a service provider for the individual towns and stakeholders on the German shore of Lake Constance. One of the main projects is the introduction of the Echt Bodensee Card (EBC) – a future-oriented guest card, which includes free use of public transport. In addition, DBT is taking on marketing and sales tasks under the umbrella brand “ECHT BODENSEE”, which publishes publications such as the Bodensee water sports guide. The district of Lindau holds 21 percent of DBT’s shares.
International Lake Constance Tourism GmbH
The main task of the Constance-based Internationale Bodensee Tourismus GmbH (IBT) is the international market development for the Lake Constance region. The primary focus is on the Italian and British markets. IBT’s products include the Lake Constance Experience Card, which bundles attractive excursion and offer packages around the lake.
Bavaria Tourism Marketing GmbH
As a Bavarian port city, Lindau Tourism naturally also participates in the marketing activities of Bayern Tourismus Marketing Ltd. Projects with a wide range of topics and events are supported here.
Lindau Lake Constance
Under the name Lindauer Bodensee, the neighbouring Bavarian communities of Lindau, Wasserburg, Nonnenhorn and Bodolz are developing joint products in the areas of enjoyment and panorama. The Nordic Walking Park and the Panorama Cycling Circuit, which is now one of the most popular cycling tours in the border triangle, have already been created within this framework. The autumn of enjoyment – a joint project aimed at extending the tourist season – has also already established itself as a firm, well-received event.
Lake Constance Gardens
Almost 1,200 years ago a monk from Lake Constance wrote the “Hortulus”, the first garden guide in Europe. The history of horticulture goes back 7,000 years further – and Lindau’s gardeners took a lot of credit for it. The “Bodenseegärten” association brings this diversity back to life and networks international players, for example within the framework of the “Long Night of the Lake Constance Gardens”. The long-term goal is to establish Lake Constance as one of the top ten garden regions in the world.
German Tourism Association
At national level, Lindau Tourism is a member of the German Tourism Association. (DTV), which is the umbrella organisation representing the tourism players in German tourism. Through its subsidiary DTV Service GmbH, the DTV manages tourism quality systems for classification and certification. Events such as the German Tourism Day are also organised by the association.
German Alpine Road
Lindau Tourism is the starting point of Germany’s oldest holiday route – the German Alpine Road – and is therefore also a member of Bayerische Fernwege e.V. The association is an association of regions, towns and partner hotels along the route and was founded in 2006. A comprehensive marketing concept aims to position the German Alpine Road among the top ten dream roads in the world.
