The Isle of Mainau

The nicest way of reaching the "Flowering Isle" of Mainau is definitely by boat. Quite apart from the unrivalled flower gardens, there is a lot more to discover here. This little island paradise is owned by the Bernadottes, who are descended from the Swedish royal family.

Isle of Mainau, Mediterranean terraces

Intoxicating colours and scents

A mass of luxuriant blooms, the whole year through; a park with a stand of trees more than 150 years old; the Baroque splendour of the palace and church; plus a heady Mediterranean feel to everything. This is the Mainau, the floral island in Lake Constance.

There is an awful lot to marvel at on the Isle of Mainau, especially when it comes to botanical gems. The renowned collection of roses with over 1,200 different types and species is spread over two locations on the island. The best place to enjoy this Queen of Flowers' heady scents and intoxicating beauty is doubtless the Italian rose garden.

You can still enjoy a trip to Mainau even when the weather is less than perfect. The sensational butterfly house and the house of palms are both absolutely fascinating.

Take an architectural stroll to see the church of the St. Marien palace, the palace of the Teutonic Order, the gatehouse, the garden tower, the Swedish tower and much more besides.
