Discover the beautiful city of Lindau during a private walking tour to the highlights while you hear interesting facts about the history. Start your tour in front of the Mangturm, on the promenade. Learn 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 one a huge 6 meter high and 50 tons sitting Lion, guarding the entrance. Continue your tour to the Thieves Tower.
In the vicinity, you will get a chance to see the “Fools Fountain”, with its interesting figures, each wearing masks worn by Lindau's guild of carnival fools. Follow the cobble stone lanes, while gazing at the different architecture of the old buildings and the many murals to reach Maximilian Street. The houses along here belonged to the noble families of Lindau. This street was the seat of the guilds and the trade center.
Not far you will stop for one of the main attractions of Lindau: the Old Town Hall. Admire the breathtaking murals on the facade, one of them depicting moment when Emperor Maximilian I held a deliberation here in 1496. Proceed through the narrow streets of the old town until you reach the Saint Stephan, Evangelical Church. Next to it, visit the Catholic Cathedral of Our Lady, also known as St. Mary's or Collegiate Church. If you like Baroque work, then you will love this Church!
