Lindau Favourites

Lake, mountains and mediterranean lifestyle - for us, Lindau is one of the most beautiful places on Lake Constance. Let us introduce you to our personal Lindau favourites.

The island of Lindau with its historic harbour is a must-see when visiting Lake Constance - after all, it is home to Germany's southernmost lighthouse and the famous harbour entrance. Wander through the small alleyways and experience the unique atmosphere of the old town. Our tip: take a walk from the lion at the harbour entrance via the Römerschanze along the lakeside to the romantic Gerberschanze. From there you can enjoy a beautiful view and discover Lindau's historic old town houses with their typical altans.

Ever since hosting the State Garden Show, the "Hintere Insel" has become a favourite spot for locals and visitors alike. The sunset is nowhere as beautiful as here: Due to the island's location, the sun literally sinks into the lake and creates wonderful colours and light effects. The extensive parks are a wonderful place to spend the day and watch the hustle and bustle.

Old trees, beautiful villas and a relaxed tranquillity even on busy summer days can be found in Lindenhof Park. Situated directly on the lake, the historic park is one of the most beautiful places in Lindau. On warm days, refresh yourself with a dip in Lake Constance - either directly from the park or in the neighbouring Lindenhofbad. The "Lindi", as it is known among locals, is a free lido from the 1950s and has great charm. The adjoining café serves delicious food and drinks.

Those who like to indulge in the luxury of bygone times should visit the Parkstrandbad at the Grand Hotel Bad Schachen: the baths are an architectural Art Nouveau gem and were built in 1924 by theatre architect Max Littmann. Enjoy the tranquillity and beautiful architecture - with direct access to the lake and a heated pool.

The density of historic villas is nowhere as high as in the Lindau district of Bad Schachen. This is why this area is also known as the Bavarian Riviera. Almost every one is built in a different style: From neoclassicism and neo-Renaissance to Art Nouveau and Heimatstil forms, you can discover over 30 architectural gems here. Many of the villas are quite hidden, but you can still catch a glimpse of them on a walk. The best way to discover the Bavarian Riviera is by boat - on a sightseeing tour, aboard our Motor Yacht Strandhaus or on a rented pedalo or electric boat.
