German Sights

Lindau Hotels

The main sights of Lindau are on the island, reached by a road bridge or via the rail link to the station. Those who are planning to sightsee or to use the ferry links may find this location more convenient.

Much of the island is pedestrianised or semi-pedestrianised and car drivers, and especially those who are looking to explore Lake Constance by road, may prefer to be on the mainland and closer to the transport connections and motorway.

The town of Lindau is the start of the German Alpine Road tourist route through to Berchtesgaden and the town and Lake Constance is a lovely area to explore before setting out on the drive.

The hotels chosen are from the five-star to three-star categories and some of them have online booking facilities through our travel fulfilment partner You can check availability at those particular hotels by clicking on the button under the hotel.

Distance to Memmingen (Allgäu) Airport: 71km
