Nature & Sustainability

The topic of sustainability is of great concern to us, which is why we have let ourselves be closely scrutinized by Ecocamping on site and received the Ecocamping award. For this purpose, measures for improvement are planned individually and represent the basis for the further operational development of Park-Camping Lindau in the coming years. Other requirements such as the training and participation of employees, the recording of waste, energy and water consumption and the preparation of an Ecocamping report are fixed components of the system.

We owe the unique flair at Park-Camping Lindau to the wonderful location directly on Lake Constance and the original closeness to nature. We can all contribute to preserving it for future generations. Help us and pay attention, for example, to a careful use of resources such as electricity and water and respect designated nature reserves and quiet zones for the plants and animals!

Our power distributors are fused at 10 to 16 amps. 90 percent of the energy we provide you with comes from green electricity.

We are of course concerned with the greatest possible cleanliness. This applies especially to the beach, which we clean for you daily during the bathing season. At the same time, harmony with nature is our top priority. We therefore ask for your understanding that wood is a natural flotsam at Lake Constance that occurs in large quantities and therefore cannot always be removed completely.

Numerous rare species feel at home at Lake Constance, also in our bay! However, we ask you to refrain from feeding. Last but not least, the excrements of the animals could worsen the water quality on site as a consequence.

Emergency

Emergency call

The medical on-call service can be reached at (+49) 116 117. In an emergency, dial 112 to alert the fire and rescue services.

Police

Please dial 110 in case of emergency.

The nearest pharmacy is the Bahnhofs-Apotheke am Lindaupark, Bergenzer Str. 51. We always provide up-to-date information about the pharmacy emergency service via a notice at the reception. Or you can look here.

The ADAC (short code mobile: 22 22 22) or the AvD (Phone: +49 800-9909909) can help.

Should the threat of flooding arise, we will inform you promptly and be there for you. Please note: In case of emergency, the instructions of our employees must be followed without fail!

The weather can also change quickly at the lake. Even when there seems to be no wind, gale-force winds can occur within minutes. For this reason, more than 60 storm warning lights are installed near the shore of Lake Constance, so that the signals can be seen from everywhere on the water.
Strong winds are indicated with 40 orange flashes per second. If the lights flash faster, namely 90 times per minute, then there is even a storm danger.
For your own safety, please move to the shore immediately in the event of a strong wind. We also recommend that you secure any awnings at the campsite and take down awnings as a precaution.
If there is a risk of thunderstorms, please go to the recreation room immediately! Despite intensive tree care, risks due to branch breakage on the site cannot be completely ruled out.

There is no water rescue service at Park-Camping Lindau. We would like to point out that swimming here, as at many other places on Lake Constance, is always at your own risk.
