Best of Germany, Austria and
Switzerland in 14 days
Sept 23-Oct 8, 2010
You will enjoy your lunch stop in Lindau which
is where Count Zeppelin made his inaugural
airship flight over Lake Constance in 1900.
I had an idea when I planned for this Rick
Steves trip that I wanted to bring home from
Germany an antique glass ornament and an
old beer stein. I found that ornament in an
antique shop near the cathedral in Lindau.
The stein I found in Munich. The painted
steins could be quite expensive so I bought
a small glass and pewter stein with a
reindeer in relief on the top. It was small
enough to fit in my luggage.
I made a quick lunch stop so I could
spend as much time as possible
exploring this beautiful city.
