Lindau is one of the most popular destinations along the German side of Lake Constance and lures people in with its historic old town, speciality boutiques and artisan shops, fantastic restaurants and scenic views. If you’re wondering where to stay during your visit, read on for our list of the best hotels in the city.
This stunning hotel has scored stellar reviews on all platforms by guests who compliment the premium location at the harbourside promenade – which grants unobstructed views of Lake Constance – the attentive staff and top-notch facilities. The four-star resort also lures with a large spa and wellness area, a booking service for sailboats and motor yachts, free wifi throughout and an onsite restaurant that prepares delicious meals from organic produce.
The five-year-long renovation at hotel Adara has paid off, and guests can now enjoy both the medieval charm brought along by the historical structure and modern facilities at the same time. The wooden beams and bare brick walls have been integrated into the design that otherwise boasts timeless furnishings. The restaurant serves select regional and Mediterranean dishes made of only fresh and high-quality ingredients. Being situated only a short stroll from Lindau train station and the old town hall, the hotel is within walking distance of all major attractions and the lakefront.
If you don’t mind staying a bit further out from the town centre, the Parkhotel Lindau offers a quiet retreat in a nearby park. While many of the rooms come with a balcony, all guests can enjoy the tranquil atmosphere on an outside terrace and in the small garden. A five-minute stroll takes you down to the waterfront of Lake Constance and a walk to the town centre takes roughly 30 minutes. The rooms and suites are equipped with modern furniture and en suite bathroom, and wifi is available throughout the hotel. In the mornings, guests can enjoy the large breakfast buffet, while the Italian-style bar serves snacks and drinks all day.
If you’re planning a luxurious getaway, the Hotel Bayerischer Hof might be just what you’re looking for. The beautiful hotel is located on the lakefront, right at Lindau harbour, and offers some of the best views in town that are best enjoyed from the large terrace and outside pool. The spacious en suite rooms are decked out with elegant furniture and décor, with robes and slippers for each guest, Sat-TV and all the other modern-day amenities you could wish for. Wellness-lovers are in for a treat as well – the hotel has a sauna, a steam room and a Babor Beauty Spa, as well as a fully-equipped gym. To round things off, guests can book in for a quick dinner or three-course meal at the restaurant.
Located a few hundred metres north of the town centre, Das Mietwerk draws budget-minded and environmentally-conscious travellers to its site. Like most hostels, guest can choose between four or six-bed dorms, private rooms, and apartments equipped with a bathroom and kitchen. Vintage furniture and colourful artworks create a homely feel. Their concept revolving around sustainability makes them stand out from the crowd even more: the use of renewable energy, organic food at the breakfast table and sustainably-produced office supplies are just some examples of how the hostel tries to minimise its carbon footprint.
As a neighbour of the Bayerischer Hof Hotel we mentioned earlier, the Hotel Reutemann-Seegarten is another establishment that offers scenic views of the lake, harbour and the Lindau lighthouse. The spaciously-designed rooms and suites leave nothing to be desired, with elegant and comfortable furniture, flat-screen TV, a safe, and en-suite bathrooms. Guests can book a range of spa treatments and beauty packages, use the gym and sauna facilities of the Babor Beauty Spa, or retreat to the outdoor pool to relax. The onsite restaurant takes care of the culinary side of things, offering regional and international specialities.
Hotel Ebner is a small family-run boutique hotel that will make you feel right at home. From here it’s only a 10-minute walk to the lakefront and another five minutes to the city centre of Lindau. The three-star hotel is designed in an Art Nouveau style and decorated with a lot of attention to detail. Free wifi is available throughout the hotel, there’s a café that serves homemade cakes, a common room that is equipped with a pool table, and all rooms have flat-screen TVs and Sky TV access. In the morning, a sumptuous breakfast buffet satisfies the early-risers’ appetite.
