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.

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

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 →

April Night-Out

Our next get-together will be this coming Friday (20th April) from 7pm onwards at Café Großstadt, Paradiesplatz, Lindau (http://www.grossstadt-lindau.de/). If you have a look at their website you’ll be able to bring up the menu, which should tempt you to come along with an empty stomach! Großstadt have updated their food selection and even though it was good before, it seems to have got even better. Wraps, bagel burgers, salads, baked sweet potatoes, pasta, as well as a good dessert choice and the best variety of any restaurant in Lindau for vegetarians and vegans. I hope that lots of you … Continue Reading →

December Meeting – A festive farewell………..

Our final meet-up of the year, the Festive Farewell, will be on Sunday, 17th December, at 12 noon in Café Collodium (https://www.cafe-collodium.de/). The café is opening an hour early, especially for us, which is a perfect way in which to gather and have a drink and a bite to eat, a chat and a laugh, before we all go our separate ways for the holiday period. If anyone would like to round off their trip to the island with a final visit to the Hafenweihnacht (Christmas market), it will be open for the last time on that Sunday, until 9pm. … Continue Reading →
