An extensive collection of rare and exotic plants, like orchids and tulips, give the area its tropical appearance. Restaurants serve German and Swedish specialties.

  • The visit to the flower island of Mainau was very nice, but the prices are too high! Here, you pay €19,90 per adult for a day ticket.
