The Flower Island of Mainau

The island of Mainau is off the northwest shore of the lake that covers an area where Germany, Austria and Switzerland meet in the Rhine valley.
It is home to an extraordinary diversity of trees, flowers, shrubs and butterflies, with a Baroque palace, widely regarded as a ‘must-see’ attraction on the Bodensee.
