the lion and the tower

Lindau, a city on an island in lake constance (Bodensee). This is the harbour entrance.

The lion, about 70 tons, made from 6 blocks of marble and the lighthouse, built 1856. The lion is a little bit older.

The opposite lakeshore belongs to switzerland. A little bit hazy, but the snow on the mountains is very well visible.
