Set in Lake Constance, Mainau overflows with parks and historic sites. You can visit the Baroque Castle of the Teutonic Order, designed in 1739, and home to the noble family who oversees the care of the island. The many parks and gardens include a butterfly house and a grand arboretum with more than 500 species of trees alone. An extensive collection of rare and exotic plants, like orchids and tulips, give the area its tropical appearance. Restaurants serve German and Swedish specialties. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Konstanz holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Mainau and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

The Island Mainau beautiful
This place is a dream...you can find the relax of a beautiful lake...the fragrance of resin...the colours of flowers.... don't miss Mainau
What a wonderful place?! The flowers are beautiful. The butterfly house is lovely! The sight of the lake and promenade is breathtaking
Quite expensive entrance fee and exactly the same landscape that you see when circling Constance lake. I don't understand why so many positive reviews. Don't waste your time/money.
It doesn't say on google maps, but entrance fee is 21.50 which is not worth it unless you have a whole day to explore. Many people don't know that and end up having to pay 5 EUR for the parking and wasting their time.
