  • This tower has more than 800 years ago and yet is in a condition so good that no one will tell you. It is a construction of quite simple rectangular plant that stands out above all for its walls of white stone and its two-tone roof, with a green and yellow greca. It is located in the port of Lindau, next to the new lighthouse and the imposing statue of the lion.

  • The 65 foot Mangturm Tower part of the trio of prominent landmarks of the harbor, which also includes the stately lion and the 19th century lighthouse that guard the entrance. Built around 1200, the tower served as a signal and lookout tower for Lindau when it held the status of an Imperial Free City during the time of the Holy Roman Empire—meaning it held the high status of being subject only to the direct authority of the German king and not to any local or regional authorities. The tower is not open to the public but is sometimes accessed through local guided tours, but it certainly adds to the picturesque charm along Lindau's promenade.
  • Nice lake and on the other side you are in Bregenz Austria.
  • Lovely place. Don't forget to bring your swimming clothing!

  • Lovely place. The landscape with the mountains is out of a fairytale book
