"Sun, Moon and Stars" is the annual theme of Mainau Island in 2019 and invites you to discover the exciting relationship between the celestial bodies, humans and nature. Therefore visitors will find for example wooden sculptures of planets in the arboretum on the high plateau of the island. If you go down from here into the lakeside garden, you are in the peony garden, which shows its most beautiful splendor in May.
During the Count‘s Island Festival from May 30 to June 2, the area around the castle courtyard turns into a particular shopping paradise. Under the slogan "stroll around, shop, enjoy", national and international exhibitors offer a wide variety of trends and lifestyle for your garden at home for four days.
Enjoy May on Mainau Island, we are looking forward to your visit!

Tip for relaxing: Starting in mid-May, the Seasonal Gardens will feature award-winning student garden designs that creatively engage with the annual theme and provide a way to discover “Unknown Worlds”.
