Lindau am Bodensee

Location: Germany, Bayern (Bodensee – Lake Constance)

Lindau is a city on Lake Constance in the German state of Bavaria. It is known for its old town island. In the harbor there is the statue of the Bavarian Lion and the stone Lindau Lighthouse with a view of the lake and the mountains. On the lakeside promenade by the harbor is the 12th-century Mangturm, a former watchtower with a pointed tile roof. Near Maximilianstrasse, lined with restaurants, is the Gothic old town hall with its painted facade.
