Mainau is an island in Lake Constance. It is maintained as a garden island and a model of excellent environmental practices. We just arrived to Constance with ferry than by car just about 5 km and we found that really exiting island.

It has a lot of exotic flowers, palm trees, giant trees, with a greenery and butterfly house and in the middle of the island the famous palace by Lennart Bernadotte.

At the coast of the island you can find a lot of ducks and swan so close that you can barelly touch them.

We spent there the whole day, this was really beatuiful and relaxing.

The period that followed cast Bonn in the shadows, as it passed from the First French Empire to the Kingdom of Prussia and to the German Empire in 1871, during the unification of Germany....
