Tips

  • Bernd 🌲🦌🍄🥾

    The six meter high lion, which is looking intently across the lake, is the work of the Munich professor Johann von Halbig. It is made of Kehlheim sandstone and weighs around 50 tons. The Roman numerals "MDCCCLVI" are written on the base of the lion - they provide information about the year the building was completed: 1856.

    The Lindau Lion (1856) is a monumental plastic/stone figure on the left pier. The lion is generally a heraldic animal that stands for Bavaria.
    Assembled from six blocks of Kelheim marble, the seated lion gazes peacefully at Austria. His body alone is 6 m high and weighs around 70 t. In addition, there is still a considerable base.

    The lion stands here as the Bavarian heraldic animal and made clear the sovereignty of the Kingdom of Bavaria at this point on the Swabian Sea during the construction of the new seaport in 1854-56. With the lighthouse standing on the opposite pier, it has become a well-known landmark of the island city.

    The entrance to the port, where u. where the Bodensee scheduled ships from Bregenz, Rorschach and Friedrichshafen dock, is bordered by the new lighthouse from 1856 on the west side and by the statue of the Bavarian lion on the east side. The 6 m high, armored lion sits, supported on its front paws, on a three-tier pedestal made of Nagelfluh and looks towards the Swiss shore. It was carved in six blocks from a block of Kelheim marble by Johann von Halbig before 1856 and weighs about 70 tons.[47] The former harbor pier was built in 1812 by the Mehrerau monastery using blocks of Rorschacher sandstone. It was completely demolished in 1986 due to the danger of collapsing and rebuilt almost in its old form from South Tyrolean sandstone. It allows you to walk around the lion statue.
