The Island of Mainau, also known as the Island of Flowers is located in the middle of Lake Constance. The almost tropical island is 6 km (4 miles) north of the town of Constance. Due to its mild climate there are orange trees and palm trees which grow year-round. The gardens and parks of Island Mainau are known all over the world for their beauty and can be visited by the public year-round. You can either take a boat ride over to the island or walk over the foot bridge. Unfortunately you cannot spend a night at the island since overnight stays are not allowed. But closeby there are many hotels, for example in the towns of Constance or Meersburg. There is also a castle situated in the center of this island.
