Hotel Restaurant Engel

Bavarian, hefty, hearty

Built around 1390, first mentioned in 1589 as "WIRTSHAUS ZUM GOLDENEN ENGEL", this inn is one of Lindau's oldest pubs. We look forward to welcoming you in the carefully renovated rooms and say a warm "GREET GOD".

Engelstube - Tradition lives on here

The restaurant has hardly changed since then and the bay window is one of the most beautiful in Lindau. We would like to spoil you with our delicacies and Vesperspezialitäten, as it corresponds for centuries to the tradition in this house.

Urbayrisches beer and selected wine specialities round our offer off. In order to do justice to the old tradition of the house, we use exclusively regional products, which we prepare freshly for you in the house.

The building is only a few metres away from the old lake shore and the fishermen's quarter on Schrannenplatz. We obtain our Lake Constance fish exclusively from the local fisherman.

BOCKSTUBE - an anecdote

When Fritz Schlechter applied for another taproom in 1895, this was rejected by the Lindau authorities, the room did not even meet the most modest demands of a taproom.

In former times the Bockstube was the beer and snack bar of the craftsmen and travellers, one can imagine the rough charm still figuratively. The room became famous in the 50s. A bull that had gone wild wanted to escape its near end of life and fled from the butcher's hand to the Bockstube. He was astonished to discover that his mere presence led to an unholy mess, in which he immediately participated honestly by jumping over, under and between tables, benches, chairs and other inventory. Since then the angel has said: Do not behave like the bull in the buck room. When this became too much for him, he left the parlour by a courageous jump through the window back into the Schafgasse. However, his luck left him here, as he was shot shortly afterwards by the police soldier Flax. But you always see each other twice. The bull landed again in the Bockstube and was served on the still intact plates.

Roof terrace - high above the alleys

The historic building has an imposing roof terrace. The view from here sweeps over the roofs of Lindaus. The island of Lindau, Lake Constance and the Alps in view make for excellent meeting, chatting and tasting opportunities.

Beer tasting - with Julia Weber

"Even water becomes a noble drop - if you mix it with malt and hops!" - Julia Weber will gladly introduce you to the world of liquid gold. As an experienced and passionate Dipl. Biersommelière she turns every evening into a very special event. Entertaining anecdotes paired with at least 7 different beers will make your muscles ache the following day. But it's not just about fun. Julia Weber introduces you to the secrets of beer and clarifies basic questions: What is the difference between top-fermented and bottom-fermented beer, how does which beer taste, how do I taste a beer properly and so on. Of course, an ENGEL bread time must not be missed in order to end the evening comfortably.

The beer tastings are based on your calendar and take place on individual dates. For inquiries please call directly in the angel.

We look forward to continuing the tradition of the house together with you and wish you a pleasant stay.
