Mainau island, lake Constance (Bodensee) near Konstanz, Germany.

As far back as 1827, Hungarian Prince Esterházy designed the present-day courtyard and planted precious exotic and domestic flowers. In 1853, Grand Duke Friedrich I of Baden acquired the island as a summer residence. He extended the tree population, created the arboretum and designed the “Italian Rose Garden”. He also introduced lemon, orange and palm trees to the Mainau.

The Isle of Mainau is run by a private limited company. The Mainau company employs 155 persons all year round and 350 persons during the flowering season from April until September.
