The Lakeside Garden lies at the south-eastern tip of Mainau Island. Tall beeches, limes and other trees characterize this part of the park with its long meandering floral band. This area is half-shady and so the ideal place to present the old and very large fuchsia solitaries.
The Lakeside Garden is also the home of numerous rhododendron bushes and their accompanying plants and also camellias that obviously thrive well here.
Mainau’s first primeval redwood also stands in the Lakeside Garden. It came to the island from Kew Gardens in London in 1952.
Many years ago, Mainau gardeners created a flowerbed in the shape of Lake Constance on a slope at the edge of the Lakeside Garden. The floral picture informs visitors about the geography of the Swabian Sea.
