Start of the 2013 flower season

'Enchanted and bewitching' is the theme for 2013 on Mainau Island on Lake Constance. And visitors are sure to be both enchanted and bewitched by the season-opening orchid show, on at the Palm House from 15 March to 5 May 2013. There is also a whole host of events for all the family highlighting the secrets and wonders of nature.

Throughout the year, and from sunrise to sunset, a huge variety of plants and flowers are on display at the Flower Island of Mainau. But it also hosts regular concerts and art exhibitions for the many visitors (around 1.2 million annually). Every year around 100 couples choose the island as the location for their wedding because of the stunning scenery.
