Discover Mainau Island

Enjoy December at Mainau Island

Dear visitors,

in the midst of resting nature, there is a lot that can be discovered and experienced on the wintery Mainau Island: Be it the wintering great crested grebes in the natural reserves „Obere Güll“ and „Untere Güll“ that are surrounding the island or the feisty redbreasts and bluetits which can be observed especially well now that the trees are leafless. Other plants like the fragrant viburnum, the bear’s foot or the mahonia present their blossoming side especially at this time of the year.

Stop by at our tropical Butterfly House after a slow-paced winter walk to warm up  or sweeten your visit with a delicious cake at the Palace Café. As part of our winter exhibition „200 years KOSMOS Verlag (KOSMOS Publishing House) – An awesome experience for the whole family“, families will have the chance to borrow KOSMOS-games to be played right on-site at the exhibition on 4th and 11th December from 11 am to 4 pm.

Besides, we recommend a visit to „Christmas Garden Insel Mainau“: The roughly two kilometre long circular route guarantees a unique winter-open-air-experience taking you on a magical journey through a romantic fairytale landscape. Tickets can be booked here.

Enjoy December on Mainau Island, we look forward to your visit!
