Do you love plants and flowers like me? One of the perfect place for you to visit in Germany is Insel Mainau. This beautiful island of Mainau (Insel means island in English word) is a paradise for me. During my first visit last August 2012, I feel in love with this island. This park and garden is truly a great place for me to visit since I really love flowers.
Mainau is a garden island in Lake Constance, known in German as Bodensee. It is one of the major tourists attraction in this area. It belong to the Lennart Bernadotte-Stiftung (English: the Lennart Bernadotte Foundation), created by Prince Lennart, formerly Prince of Sweden and Duke o Smaland.
During our visit, we had a walk around the island, seeing various plants and flowers of all kinds including exotic ones. I was truly amazed by the beauty of nature in this island. We also went inside the butterfly garden in the island. There, you can find varieties of butterflies and information on the stages of their life development.
