Love these botanical gardens. So much to see and do and the perfect day out. Well organised, with a great kids playground and stunning floral displays it's wonderful to explore. The butterfly house is a huge hit with our toddler and the rose garden and excellent on site bakery offered a lovely bit of respite. We'll definitely be back.
I remember this garden being impressive when I went in the summer three years ago. Now I returned with our daughter and I realized how fantastic this place is. Great food options, great playgrounds for kids, great views and amazing flower and plant arrangements. And on top of that, the butterfly house is our favorite part.
Whenever you are on the Mainau Island or so called the Flower Island you fell like in a big botanical garden surrounded by great energy. You have wonderful views and great spots to visit. The full price of 19€ entry fee for adults is though too high.
Beautiful place. Well worth a visit
Even though it was pouring with rain when we visited it was a beautiful park, particularly liked the butterfly house
