One day at Mainau Insel – second part


At some  point during our visit at Mainau we were asked by someone if we know where the Butterfly’s House is. We had no idea where that was and what that was, but a few moments later we found it. After seeing the pictures you will understand why this was our favorite part of the Mainau Island.

It was very hot inside and the humidity was very high. This was just perfect for the  of butterflies, but not so pleasant for the humans.We admired hundreds or thousands of butterflies and exotic plants, observed the butterfly life cycle and took many pictures.



After this wet experience,we stopped for a while in the visitor shop for some postal cards and headed towards the church and castle -The Castle of the Teutonic Order.The church was busy with a wedding, which was just beginning so we watched it from faraway.

We were really tired after seeing so many flowers so we decided to go home. The ferry was not there and we had to wait another 30 minutes for it to come. The trip back to Meersburg took longer as the one from Meersburg to the island. Once we got to the city we took a long walk on the streets filled with tourists and tried the local sweets.But more on that on a future article.
