Visited Meersburg town and castle after a long struggle to get parking (parking in lower town near the ferry to Konstanz was laughable and impossible) but managed to get a space in the upper town- this is time limited so be careful of the clock....More

We toured the castle and amazing artifacts inside from old knight armory and weapons to furniture. The village around and shops were exceptional too.
