Summer on Mainau Island offers not only Mediterranean flair, but also a glance into the universe with the annual theme 2019 “Sun, Moon and Stars”: Among other things, you can admire on the palace meadow a large bed in the shape of a sun, equipped with plants that carry the sun in their name, such as sunflower or sun bride. In addition, there is a huge planted globe in the shore garden of the island, which offers an impressive picture directly against the backdrop of Lake Constance.
On July 7, Mainau Island becomes a music island. Since 1999, around 800 participants of music school groups and ensembles meet on the Mainau every year to perform their repertoire under the theme "Mainau Sounds". The event series "Jazz under Palm Trees" brings the Frankfurt Jazz Sisters Quartet to the stage in the Palm House on July 26: four musicians singing and playing guitar, double bass, drums and giving their very own style to known pieces as well as forgotten pearls of jazz and pop.
Enjoy summer on Mainau Island, we are looking forward to your visit!

Tip for relaxing: Especially in summer, the historic Arboretum offers a soothing cooling. Relax on one of the benches in the shade of the giant sequoia trees, which Grand Duke Friedrich I. of Baden let plant in the middle of the 19th century.
