Christmas Market Dates
25th November – 18th December 2016
Welcome to the
Lindau Christmas Market
Enjoy a real romantic winter atmosphere at the Christmas market on Lindau's harbour and Lake Constance.
Stroll through an evocative scene of festively decorated Christmas market stalls, along the old picturesque town quarter or along Lindau's beautiful harbour.
On a good day the harbour is the best place to admire a fantastic silhouette of snow covered Alpine mountains across Germany's largest lake. At night the harbour is turned into a fairytale scene when over 6000 lightbulbs are switched on.
Lindau's famous harbour, is still regarded today as the most attractive anywhere on Lake Constance, it was completed in 1856. The 6m high monument with a lion looking overlooking the lake is a work by a sculptor called Johann von Halbing.
To explore the island town of Lindau you might want to join the town's night watchman on a tour of the old quarter and through the best parts of Lindau's Christmas Market.
On a cold day a traditional hot punch or a glühwein will help you keep out the cold as you listen to daily Christmas concerts.
