Discover the exotic island in Lake Constance with a boat ride from Bregenz. The trip takes three and a half hours (daily throughout the entire season) or two and a half hours (on weekends, as well as daily from the end of June through the end of September). Discover gorgeous impressions along the northern shore of Lake Constance between Lindau and Meersburg. The way back offers you another opportunity to kick back and experience the unique atmosphere at one of Central Europe's largest lakes near the Alps. The boat's on-board gastronomy offers breakfast and warm meals during both the outward and the return journey!

Mainau Island - A paradise in the middle of Lake Constance

Spring, summer, autumn and winter: Mainau Island is always worth a trip. Apart from the magnificent flowers in the parks and gardens, each season offers its very own highlights - and not just outdoors. Unique attractions, especially for cool or rainy days, include, among other things, the Palm House or the Butterfly House.

The Mainau Flower Year traditionally starts in March with the Orchid Exhibition at the Palm House. But the splendour of spring bloom can also be admired outdoors. More than 100,000 tulip bulbs join together to produce a colourful sea of flowers.

From the end of May to the first frost, 12,000 rose bushes adorn the island in Lake Constance, followed by dahlias in autumn. Approximately 12,000 of the sun-loving tubers, spanning more than 250 different varieties and species, cover the island's southern slope in late summer and autumn.

Events such as the "Gräfliches Inselfest" (the Count's Island Festival) and the "Gräfliche Schlossfest" (the Count's Palace Festival), as well as exhibitions at the palace and the Palm House or open-air concerts offer great opportunities to discover the other unique facets Mainau Island has to offer. Last but not least, the island's gastronomy offers various types of culinary delights.
