Mainau is an island in Lake Constance (on the south shore of the Überlinger See near the city of Konstanz). It is maintained as a garden island and a model of excellent environmental practices.

The island belongs to the Lennart Bernadotte-Stiftung, an entity created by the late Lennart, Count Bernadotte af Wisborg, formerly a Prince of Sweden and Duke of Småland. It is one of the main tourist attractions of Lake Constance. Beside flowers there is a park landscape with views on the lake. There is also a greenhouse with tropical climate and thousands of butterflies.

Mainau Bay is the location of the university sailing club; their many small sailboats add to the summer scenery.

We were there in April, thus not being able to see the gardens blooming, however, they are nice even in that time of year.
