Welcome to the gardening year 2021 at Lake Constance!

The mild climate of Lake Constance has always played into the cards of gardeners. In the landscape of the blue lake and the green shores, beautiful parks and well-tended gardens have been popping up for centuries. No wonder that in one year two garden shows directly on the lake invite visitors to enjoy gardening and have fun. In 2021, the motto is: pure garden. The lake in the four-country region is going green. The garden show in Lindau and the regional garden show in Überlingen will present new gardens and the highest level of garden art. Visit us and let yourself be enchanted by green plants.

Garden Year 2021

All around Lake Constance, the entire horticultural history of Europe is on display. From the Stone Age to Antiquity and the Middle Ages to the 19th century and on to the present day, visitors can experience it at first hand. There is hardly any distance to cover. And if they wish, they can simply travel from garden to garden by boat, bus or train.

  • Two garden shows in Überlingen and Lindau on Lake Constance
  • 16 Lake Constance gardens and partners
  • Colourful outdoor events

Garden Show Überlingen

Garden lovers can enjoy both landscaped and natural areas in Überlingen. Historical parks and gardens with partly very old trees, a large collection of cacti and impressive rock formations that create a stately scenery. Not to forget the villages with their rural character, lovingly tended farm gardens and orchards. With the first regional garden show on Lake Constance, Überlingen continues its tradition as a garden city. In 1875, the listed town garden was laid out. In the heart of the town, impressive giant trees still bear witness to this time. The perfect climate at the foot of the molasse rocks allows Mediterranean and exotic plants to grow excellently.

That’s why Überlingen is celebrating a big summer garden festival this year: the first regional garden show on Lake Constance. True to the motto: Refreshing – Boundless – Garden Kingdom, Überlingen presents itself even more attractively. No two days will be the same – Inspiring. Varied. Relaxing. For a total of 192 days, there will be plenty to see in five enclosed exhibition areas. The State Garden Show will take place in Überlingen from 30 April to 17 October.

Bavarian Garden Show Lindau

In 2021, Lindau will become a garden beach: the garden show will refine the entire city into a sensual overall experience from 20 May to 26 September 2021. Not only on the island of Lindau, but also on the mainland, you will be able to enjoy the variety of green and colourful things to do and experience. Lindau’s heart beats on the island, which not only delights with its Mediterranean buildings, but also with its unique flair. Narrow alleys – wide views: the ambience can hardly be summed up any better. This melange has always been complemented by lush greenery and colourful blossoms, and in 2021 even more will be added – on the shore and in the city centre, on a small and a large scale.

On Hintere Insel, a formerly dreary car park is being transformed into a lively neighbourhood: In addition to a flourishing citizens’ park, flats for future generations are also being built here. Sina-Kinkelin-Platz, Karlsbastion and Schützingerweg on the island are also currently being redesigned and will shine in full bloom from May 2021.
