The World On My Doorstep

An ever-expanding postcard blog

Mainau

on March 8, 2014

postcards3_2This spectacular card once again shows an area I did not know existed! All the way from Barbel in Germany, here you can see Mainau Island in Lake Constance in the very south of the country. The island is maintained primarily as a garden island and is renowned for being extremely eco-friendly. Unsurprisingly, it is very popular with tourists, but also has a rich history with the order of Teutonic Knights before being passed into private ownership. Beautiful!
