Mainau Palace

Mainau Island Palace – Germany

Mainau Island lies just off the shores of Lake Constance in Baden-W├╝rttemberg in the far south-west of Germany, close to Switzerland and Austria. The marvellous baroque palace can be seen from afar high above the treeline. Restored under Count Bernadotte, it dates back to the Teutonic Order of Knights, who owned the island for almost 500 years from the 13th century.
