Location: Lindau, Germany

Lindau dates back to the 9th century. The beautiful historical city center is still well preserved. Lindau and Lake Constance are located in the heart of Europe and are surrounded by nature. They offer an ideal place for the world assembly. Lake Constance connects the three countries Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The city of Lindau is an island in the lake and therefore a peaceful and "neutral" zone. Lindau has become well known for hosting the annual international Nobel Laureate meetings.

The island of Lindau is home to the medieval Bavarian city and is a central tourist destination. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations on Lake Constance and is home to several famous sights, including the harbor entrance, which is marked by a large lion and a lighthouse. Outside the tourist season, Lindau has almost 25,000 inhabitants.

Lake Constance: International Waters

At close to 540 square kilometers, Lake Constance is the largest lake in Germany and one of the largest in Central Europe. 173 kilometers of Lake Constance’s shores are within Germany; 28 kilometers are in Austria and the final 72 kilometers are in Switzerland. The lake’s German shore predominantly lies in Baden-Württemberg, while only 18 kilometers are located in Bavaria, more precisely in the district of Lindau, Swabia.

At its broadest point, Lake Constance measures 14 kilometers across and reaches 254 meters deep. Lindau is one of the lake’s eleven islands.

The Value of Experience: Let’s Talk

The ‘Inselhalle’ in Lindau is newly renovated, updated and was generously expanded in 2018. It is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and offers flexible room arrangement opportunities. The ‘Inselhalle’ is conveniently located centrally on the island of Lindau. A multi-storey car park and other conference venues such as the ‘Gewölbesaal’, ‘Altes Rathaus’ and two churches, are immediately adjacent and can be easily reached on foot.
