“This is the famous Mainau Island or Insel Mainau. It is the "Flower Island" and there is also a Butterfly conservatory. It is a main attraction around the Bodensee and highly recommended. You can get to this by driving or you can take the ferry directly to the island from Überlingen or Meersburg. It is not far either way. ”

“Both impressive and educational, with its 12,000 species, the Botanical Gardens (le Jardin Botanique) at Villers les Nancy is a real asset to the area. You can really have a good time in the fresh air and get an oxygen boost! It is as beautiful indoors as it is out. The greenhouses, both arid and tropical, can teleport you from Lorraine to Mexico or the Amazon in a matter of seconds – incredible! ”

Botanical Garden
“Etwas abseits der Stadt auf den Lahnbergen gelegen ist der neue Botanische Garten. Er ist mit den Bus Linien 2 und 7 allerdings gut erreichbar an der Haltestelle Botanischer Garten gelegen. Im Winter wie im Sommer lohnt sich der Spaziergang durch das weite Gelände nicht nur für botanisch interessierte. ”

Botanical Garden
“Although it is a small botanical garden in comparison to other cities, it is very well kept and has free lockers and space to leave jackets (and this is important because it is very hot inside the greenhouses). The highlight: the tropical greenhouse (main one) which has species of birds, frogs and tortoises from around the world. ”
