the early starters amongst the tulips make their way through to the light, blackbirds are singing cheerfully in the treetops and first warm rays of sunshine are blinking through the branches of the old, noble trees of the Arboretum. All of them are proclaiming: Spring has arrived on Mainau Island!
On 20th March, the Flower Year 2020 will be launched. Learn fascinating facts about the relationship between water, garden and plants under this year’s theme “Flowering Water, Floating Gardens” and get enchanted by the beauty of numerous water lilies and exotic lotus flowers amongst others.
Once more, a true feast for the eyes will also be waiting for you at the Palm House: From 20th March until 3rd May, our gardeners will take you on a South Sea journey to “Islands Full of Flowers” at the traditional Orchid Show. Next door in the Castle Church St. Marien, the Flower Show will focus on floral arrangements with blue plants under the slogan “Forget-me-not and Blue-Eyed Mary”.
Enjoy springtime on Mainau Island, we’re looking forward to your visit!

Tip for relaxing: Consciously experience the nature awakening around you with all of your senses on a spring walk through the Mainau-Park: Behold for instance the blossoms’ wealth of colour, breathe in the hyacinths’ scent and let the sun tickle your skin.
