Lindau (-Bodensee) is a city in southern Bavaria in Germany on the shore of Lake Constance or the Bodensee. Lindau lies on the border to the Austrian federal-state of Vorarlberg and the nearby Austrian town of Bregenz is within walking distance. The historic town is actually an island and therefore technically called Lindau im Bodensee, (Lindau in Lake Constance).
The coat of arms of Lindau town is a linden tree, referring to the supposed origin of the town’s name (Linde means linden tree in German). The historic town of Lindau is located on an 0.68-square-kilometre island, which is connected with the mainland by a road-traffic bridge and a railway dam leading to Lindau station. Full of medieval and half-timbered buildings it is quite the tourist atttraction.
One can also take boat tours leaving the small harbor and just sit and enjoy a Weissbier admiring the view of Austria and Switzerland and the Alps across the lake. Lindau is not a very known tourist attraction to people living outside of Europe. Nevertheless, it is filled with tourists all throughout the summer. Even on cold or rainy days there are many tourists on the island. It is a great place to be. The town is old and very beautiful and has a good market.
