    Here we walk along a beautiful avenue with primeval mammoth trees (Metasequoia glyptostroboides). They are not to be confused with the coastal or giant sequoia native to the American West Coast.

    The island of Mainau is suitable for a day trip for the whole family. The avenue offers shady places to pause

    Giants of prehistoric times
    It is a living fossil under which already the dinosaurs walked: Metasequoia (also Chinese redwood). It was discovered as a living specimen in China in the 1940s. Ten years later, the island of Mainau received its first specimen, with a size of about 30 cm, from the Royal Botanical Garden "Kew Gardens" in Richmond, United Kingdom. The fact that the tree in his new home on the flower island has felt right at home, is shown by the 51 metasequoias from cuttings of the mother tree.
