Lindau is a picturesque town on Lake Constance, nestled amid lush countryside surrounds, with a backdrop of snow-capped mountains. Expansive botanical gardens, forest trails, golf courses, and grand villas on the shoreline dominate this Bavarian Riviera. Lindau’s old town occupies an island connected via bridges and is highlighted by a lofty Bavarian lion statue and a lighthouse. Best explored on foot, amble across historic squares, waterfront promenades, and romantic alleyways. Maximilianstrasse, the central pedestrian-only cobblestone boulevard flanked by family-run establishments and medieval merchant houses, is ideal for people watching. The baroque style House of Cavassen, featuring a painted façade, houses the town museum and hosts first-class cultural events. Depending on the season, open-air pools and water sports or ice rinks sprout up along the lakefront, while a ferry ride on the waters offers the best views of Lindau!
