Well preserved middle age castle. the view from castle balcony is amazing. Tickets are a bit expensive but... save some 40 minutes to visit the interior and some 15 minutes for pictures from balcony.

When you visit Meersburg, you will not miss the beautiful castle right on top of a hill. Other then visiting the castle, you can also enjoy walking through the shops along the Lake of Constance. There many bar, cafe and souvenir shops. It is very interesting and relaxing.

We visited this with English friends of ours who had come over from Munich. It's worth taking the guided tour to the top of the tower. Even though the guide gives the commentary in German, as expected, there's lots to see, including a fearsomely deep well, and some creepy staircases. The view from the top is spectacular across Meersburg and... More

Went for a drive to Meersberg to have lunch & a look around. Did a self guide tour of the castle which it was well set up for. Just walked through at a leisurely pace, found the castle's history and age very interesting. Very well worn floorboards. Had coffee in the cafe at end of tour. Definitely worth a visit.... More

Didn't find it particularly informative, but something you do when you are visiting Meersburg. If you happen to have a sunny day you can grab a drink on the terrace with views over the lake. You can purchase a ticket at the entrance for E2 and just have a drink or eat in the coffee shop, the money is deducted... More

We were driving from the Zurich Airport to Munich and wanted a place to stop mid-trip. This turned out to be a great place. Arriving by ferry on Lake Constance, the castle is impressive and the restoration more so. From the entryway with its winch to raise the drawbridge to the Knights Hall, chapels and towers this was an interesting... More

This is a great castle overlooking the Bodensee (Lake Constance). The ticket seller asked me if I had several things that might give me a discount. I had used the BODO day ticket to get there by bus #7395, so it qualified me for 10% off. The 1 euro guide in English was excellent, giving just enough information on each... More
