Free space in a dream location
A good event location not only convinces with suitable rooms and technical equipment, but also with that certain something. The Inselhalle Lindau offers exactly this wow factor, which will inspire you and your guests: On one side, it borders the historic old town of the Lindau island, which spreads a very special flair with its romantic, winding alleys at all times of the year. On the other side, the lake awaits – and with it the offer to let your gaze wander, your thoughts flow and your horizon expand. No wonder, then, that pioneers and thinkers, graduates and ambitious people, scientists and artists have been coming together here for decades. Whether for cultural events or renowned conferences, small workshops or international congresses: The Inselhalle offers space for up to 2,000 people – and plenty of room for encounters, insights and visions.
One hall – 46 room variations
At the heart of the flexible building are three combinable halls, of which the Great Hall is the ideal place for plenary events with up to 1,100 guests. Grouped around this core are ten conference rooms on the ground floor and two more in the basement. Thanks to a modular concept, 46 variations are possible for events of different types and sizes – from gala to workshop, from seminar to get-together.
Tradition meets modernity – and nature
Visually, too, the Inselhalle, designed by Munich architects Auer Weber, is a highlight of modern architecture that blends in perfectly with the island: the striking polygonal roof, for example, with its copper colour, echoes the look of the roofs of Lindau’s old town; generous glass surfaces offer a view of the lake and the greenery. The adjacent 2,500 square metre Therese-von-Bayern-Platz is used as an additional activity area for many events. The consistent architecture is continued in the Inselhallen multi-storey car park P4, which offers 400 parking spaces in the direct vicinity of the event location.
Lindau Nobel Laureate Conferences
Probably the best-known flagship event with international appeal is the annual Nobel Laureate Meetings: Since 1951, more than 30 Nobel laureates and over 600 young scientists from all over the world have met in Lindau every year. Every year, the conference alternates between medicine, physics and chemistry. The aim is the intercultural and intergenerational exchange of knowledge and experience. Lectures, discussion rounds, panel discussions and master classes form the bulk of the programme.
Lindau Psychotherapy Weeks
The Lindau Psychotherapy Weeks are by far the congress with the largest number of participants. They are one of the world’s largest events in the field of psychotherapy and gather over 4,000 medical and psychological psychotherapists and members of related professions in Lindau every year during two weeks of events. The event has been held annually in the Inselhalle since 1950 and offers lectures, talks and seminars.
Religions for Peace
In August 2019, the world assembly of “Religions for Peace” took place for the first time in the Inselhalle. During the high-profile meeting, around 1,000 representatives of the largest religious and cultural communities, governments, NGOs and multilateral institutions from all over the world met in the Inselhalle Lindau. They exchanged views on how dialogue between religions can promote peace.
