1. Main­au Island

Main­au Island deser­ves undoub­ted­ly the first place on this list. Main­au is par­ti­cu­lar­ly per­fect for fami­ly outings. While you mar­vel the out­stan­ding plant and ani­mal life on the island, your child­ren are play­ing in one of the many attrac­tions. You can easi­ly spend the who­le day on this popu­lar flower island.

Next I have cited a few lines direct­ly from the web­site of Mainau:

A visit to the second lar­gest but­ter­fly house in Ger­ma­ny is cer­tain­ly one of the high­lights of a Main­au day out.

Main­au Children’s Land is a play­ground para­di­se for child­ren. “Water World” in the Main­au Children’s Land is a play area repro­duc­tion of the Lake Con­stance regi­on in the olden days. “Blumi’s Lakesi­de World” is a the­me play­ground for inqui­si­ti­ve 3 to 6 year olds. The authen­tic lakesi­de land­s­cape with drift­wood, clim­bing nets, balan­cing beams and a beaver’s lodge is a play and hide para­di­se for children.”

In the sum­mer, its sun­bat­hing area of 50 000 squa­re metres and 600 metres of shore­li­ne make it the lar­gest open air swim­ming pool by Lake Con­stance, which is a popu­lar mee­ting place for all ages.
