Lindau : Michelin's recommendations
Coming into Lindau harbour by boat, via a narrow passageway between the lighthouse and the stone lion of Bavaria, the visitor is immediately struck by the unique charm of this island-city. A former imperial town, Lindau’s island setting adds to the attraction of its old streets. The city boasts many onion-domed churches and row upon row of fine gabled houses that still bear witness to the prosperity brought about by trade with Italy. To appreciate the old-world charm of this Swabian city, take an evening stroll between the port and the Maximilianstrasse.
