Mainau Island

Mainau Island, Germany

A paradise in Lake Constance

The year-round beauty of Flower Island Mainau can be explored on 45 hectare of impressive gardens. The second largest butterfly house in Germany invites everybody to its tropical world with numberless colourful butterflies and blossoms. Look around in one of the themed gardens including a Rhododendron Slope, Italian Rose Garden, Dahlia Garden and Hydrangea Path or the Herbaceous Garden. And finally enjoy the end of the day dining in comital atmosphere or go on a shopping tour in the store of Diana Countess Bernadotte.

Summer:

In addition to the sumptuous variety of flowers in bloom in the park and garden, every season promises its own special highlights, not only during the holidays. Unique attractions, even for cooler, rainy days, include the palm house and the butterfly house. Take a look at our rainy- day programme, for example exclusive palace tours are available if it is raining. The insect garden, the “Wasserwelt”, “Blumis Uferwelt” and “Zwergendorf” play areas and the treasure hunt offer children fun, variety and a true nature experience.

 

Winter:

Enjoy the winterly landscape of Mainau Island. After exploring the park two places especially invite you to stay: the Butterfly House and the Palm House. During Christmas time you can also dive into the enchanting world of Scandinavian Winter Wonderland in the baroque castle and explore the boutique winter market in the castle courtyard.
