The 300th entry for this year’s International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend event has been registered by ICQ Amateur/Ham Radio Podcast's Ed Durrant (DD5LP), for the lighthouse on the West Mole at Lindau on Lake Constance.
This lovely and much-photographed lighthouse is accompanied by a Lion on the East Mole both sheltering the town's harbour.
The lighthouse was built and operated by the railroad (now Deutsche Bahn) until the railroad dropped its ferry routes and sold its Lindau harbor facilities to Stadtwerke Konstanz, which operates ferry service from Lindau to Meersburg on the German side and Romanshorn in Switzerland.
In 2010 the town of Lindau acquired the lighthouse and opened it to the public as a museum.
Site open, museum and tower open daily except when bad weather makes the pier unsafe. Owner/site manager: City of Lindau.
