An annual highlight that attracts many visitors from the surrounding area and further is the „Gräfliche Inselfest” (The Earl’s Island Festival) on Mainau Island, which this year (2014) will be held between the 30th of May and the 2nd of June. During these four days, the 13. Island Festival offers a diverse programme concerning plants, homes and gardens, with many national and international exhibitors presenting and selling their wares. This festival is truly a source of inspiration for everyone who loves and appreciates the colorful and ornate floral splendor and everything exclusive and stylish. In addition, the magnificent ambience that results from the backdrop of the Palace Mainau is a special treat. A trip to Mainau Island is therefore particularly worthwhile during the four days.
