A quaint island town with a medieval flare and located in southern Germany, Lindau is a popular alternative destination for couples and families looking to stay at Lindau hostels and enjoy the relaxing nature of the Bodensee (Lake Konstanz) but avoid the large hordes of tourists found at other Bodensee towns such as the main hub Friedrichshafen or the popular island of Minau. It is the easternmost strip of land of the Bodensee and connected to the mainland by a short bridge that is both car- and pedestrian-friendly.

This cool seaside destination has a historic port with its trademark lighthouse, a town hall, a casino, and a handful of churches to keep the sightseer out of his Lindau hostel for a few hours. In the summer, it is full of lively restaurants with outdoor seating, ice cream parlors, and outdoor markets for shopping. For the more leisurely visitor, Lindau offers a delightful promenade along the shore, which is not short of seaside benches for people-watching, and a plethora of sightseeing boats that offer meals and give either quick or longer tours around the lake.

There are several pensions, a few hotels, and one hostel in Lindau that welcomes children and families to stay in their four-bed "family rooms" for one of the best deals on the island. There is an efficient network of buses to take you anywhere on Lindau you need to go, as well as provided bike lanes on many streets for a more environmental mode of transportation. The main train station makes it easy to connect to other parts of the lake for fun daytrips or to connect directly to Friedrichshafen in order to continue your Bodensee vacation via ferry in another Bodensee destination.
