lindau is a town that is partially on a teeny tiny island near the border of germany & austria. i have absolutely no idea how i found it, but i did & i pushed really hard for us to stop there on our little german roadtrip. most of the towns we stopped in on this trip were all pretty small & each town seemed to get cuter the longer our trip went on. it also got colder the longer our trip went on.. haha. we stayed on the island part of lindau & just wandered up & down the little cobblestone streets. sadly for us the christmas market in lindau is only open on the weekends & it worked that we stopped there midweek, but it as still definitely worth stopping in.
