Actually, we first considered Lundau as a classy sightseeing point, but for our fortune made a stop in Meersburg, which has both the old and the new castle. The old castle is located very close to the Bodensee bank, so the views are breathtaking. Meersburg...More

If you like the old Konstanzer history, ancient prison holes, and soldiers and weapons from the middel-age, so is this the place to go. This is also the home of the well-known German author Annette von Droste-Hûlshoff. You should look after a guided tour around...More

The admission is € 12.80 each adult. They do have some lovely views and they tried hard to do everything good for display. But as far as I reconsider, the explanations are only written in German. But they sell a little leaflet for just €...More

It's always a pleasant surprise to stumble across an old stone castle that has been restored to the medieval times that is also worth the visit. The displays are good enough that you don't need a self-guided tour. Each time you think you are almost...More

Meersburg Castle is a great way to spend an hour or two in Meersburg. We did a self-guided tour. We bought an English information booklet for the castle which was good value at €1. There are lots of rooms to see in the castle and...More

The Burg in Meersburg gives a good idea of life in a castle. The displays are very good and include all the details of everyday life. The tour is well worth doing, if in the region. Also the views of the town and Bodensee are...More
