The flower island of Count Bernadotte: Lake Constance's Swedish king

It took a Swedish prince to transform Mainau into the floral paradise that we see today. In 1932, Count Lennart Bernadotte began to devote his passion for horticulture to this Lake Constance island. The parks and gardens are today managed by his children.

The Flower Island of Mainau in Lake Constance may only cover 45 hectares of land, but it is home to an extraordinary diversity of trees, flowers and shrubs. Its other attractions include a 13th century baroque palace, a palm house and the biggest butterfly house in Germany.
