Lindau Lake And Mountain Holidays

The original centre of Lindau is situated on an island on the north-east shores of Lake Constance, near the Austrian border, and is connected to the mainland by two impressive causeways. The island is famous for its harbour entrance and visitors will find various historic buildings here, like the old Town Hall or St. Peter's Church, as well as a wonderful shopping street and lakeside promenade. The town exudes old-world wealth and romance with its picture-perfect views across the Alps.

We can also offer hotels in nearby Bregenz as well as accommodation in Constance if you are looking to stay elsewhere in the Lake Constance area.
