Events in June 2019

Hello everyone, Happy to tell you that we have a couple of meetings coming up in the near future. First of all, our Coffee Club is going over the border to Austria this weekend, with tables booked from 11am on Saturday, 15th at KUB Café Bar (at the Kunsthaus), Karl-Tizian-Platz 1, Bregenz. If you want to come by train, the Kunsthaus is between Bregenz-Hauptbahnhof and the Bregenz-Hafen stations. To keep the Lindau connection, the café is run by the three brothers who used to have Marmorsaal, at Lindau harbour. Natalie looks forward to welcoming you all! Family, friends, dogs, etc … Continue Reading →

May Night Out – 31.05.19

Thanks to those of you who came along to the Coffee Club get-together at “Mokka” on Saturday and to Natalie for organising it. I enjoyed going somewhere new and was impressed at how nicely the building had been renovated. The staff were friendly and the food looked really delicious, so I can see that we’ll be heading there again at some point. Our next evening meeting will be on Friday, 31st May in the “Bockstube” bar, on the ground floor of Hotel Engel (https://en.engel-lindau.de/). It’s a little snug, with not a huge number of seats, but there’s standing room too … Continue Reading →

Coffee Club – 18.05.19

Morning everyone. Natalie has booked tables at a new venue: “Mokka”, which is halfway down Maximilianstrasse, behind the flower stall. Hope to see you from 11am onwards for a chat and a laugh. Family and friends welcome.

April Night-Out

I had some problems getting a venue for our forthcoming meeting on Friday, 26th April, with my chosen place not giving me an answer for over a week and then cancelling altogether only two days ago! Hence the reason for my very late post. However, I am happy to be able to tell you that we’ll be meeting at Café Großstadt, Paradiesplatz, from 7pm onwards this Friday. Our lovely friends, Birgit and Jan have been super-uncomplicated and let me book for us at very short notice. I hope that lots of you will be able to come, even though it’s … Continue Reading →

April Coffee-Club

Hi folks. I’ve been pretty poor at keeping the website updated – sorry. We had our 15th anniversary on 29th March, and celebrated accordingly at Eiscafé Pìu on the island. We had an international buffet, mini quiz and lovely birthday cake but I’m ashamed to say that I completely forgot to put anything about it on this page….. slapped wrists all round. Anyway, I hope that you will be able to join us at our next get-together, which is on Saturday, 13th April at the Schloß Hotel in Wasserburg, from 11am onwards. We have tables booked outside if it’s sunny … Continue Reading →

Annual Quiz Night – 25th Jan 2019

Our evening meeting this month will involve our annual quiz. Our quizmaster, Mike Corrigan, has put together another brain-teaser and we will be having it this year at “Hugo’s” café, Maximillianstraße. It takes place on Friday, 25th January, at the slightly earlier time of 6.30pm. Soup and tapas-style snacks will be available, as well as the usual cakes and desserts. If everyone could be fairly punctual I would be grateful. It would be great if we could start the quiz by 7.15-7.30pm at the latest. One important note: the proceeds from the quiz cover the prizes and also help pay … Continue Reading →

End-of-year meeting – Dec 18

Hello everyone! I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas. We have now had a couple of days to pause and take a deep breath before the next round of merry-making begins. We will be gathering for one last occasion before 2018 bids us farewell, at Café Konditorei Vogler, Inselgraben. Tables are booked for 10.30am on Sunday, 30th December and breakfast and savoury snacks are available as well as their usual range of gorgeous cakes and gateaux. Family and friends are welcome as always, as long as they can speak English well enough to join in the conversation. I … Continue Reading →

Ex-Pats November Night Out / Opening Night of Christmas Market

Our November evening meeting is going to be on the opening night of the Lindauer Hafenweihnacht, which has become a bit of a tradition. This will be on Thursday, 22nd November! The grand opening with the Oberbürgermeister will be at 5.30pm, but we will be meeting at our usual spot (Café Schreier’s glühwein stand) from 6.30pm onwards. The market is open until 9pm. Please come with public transport, bike or on foot if at all possible.

October Night-Out – Info and Update

Good morning everyone, Just a quick message to say that there has been a last-minute venue change for our get-together this evening. The staff at 37° are not able to host us after all, due to sickness. Luckily I have been able to make a reservation at “Bar Barista” in the Marktplatz. We are still meeting at 7pm tonight – just the venue has changed. If you need a link to get directions or find out what’s on the menu, etc, then click here: https://www.barbarista-lindau.de/ Hope to see lots of you there. Best wishes, Amanda

End-of-the-summer Night Out – August 2018

Sorry for being so bad at keeping this site updated over the last few months. I have been sending out the monthly newsletter to everyone on the mailing list and have been posting our events on our Facebook page, but never seemed to have managed to put anything on here. We usually meet on the last Friday of each month for our evening get-together, as well as our regular Coffee Club meetings mid-month, so if you’re reading this and want to get a reliable update, just drop me a line on our email address (lindauexpats@gmail.com). I have booked somewhere away … Continue Reading →
