I am not such a great lover of flowers so though we had been to Konstanz many times earlier, had never really made that trip to the Island of Mainau. Finally my husband and I visited Mainau in May 2017 and we loved the few...More

You can travel by boat to Mainau if coming from elsewhere on the lake, or park and walk across the short causeway if coming from Konstanz.

The round trip ferry including the entrance ticket to the island was 33 Euro. I believe the island was the attraction and you only enter once.
