Discover the beautiful city of Lindau known as the “Bavarian Riviera” during a private walking tour.
Stroll through the city on the eastern side of Lake Constance and enjoy its Alpine views, lakefront cafes, and its old town stranded on a small island. See the medieval and half-timbered buildings that bear witness to a turbulent history, unspoiled nature, and relaxed, laid-back beach atmosphere.
Start your tour in front of the Mangturm on the promenade and learn more about one of the most famous still standing watchtowers of the old medieval fortification belt. In the background, admire the entrance to the port, with its two main landmarks: on one side the new Lighthouse and on the other side a huge 6 meter high and 50 tons sitting Lion, guarding the entrance. Pass by the Thieves Tower and listen to its fascinating story. See the “Fools Fountain”, and find out more about its interesting figures, each wearing masks worn by Lindau's guild of carnival fools.
Walk along Maximilian Street, once the seat of the guilds and trade center of the city, and reach the beautiful gothic Old Town Hall. Marvel at the breathtaking murals on the facade, one of them depicting the moment when Emperor Maximilian I held a deliberation here in 1496. Learn how one mural started a huge erotic scandal and what happened to it.
