Castle Meersburg is great for an afternoon of history and medieval culture. The castle is self guided with a pamphlet in multiple languages, that guides you through each numbered exhibit. The castle staff will also allow pets on the tour should you want.

Part of the visit was guided and the explanation (in German) was comprehensive, providing a good insight to the history of the castle. The view of Lake Constance from the cafe was magnificent. Overall, an excellent place to spend an idyllic afternoon.

The old castle was suggested to us as a great sight, and we are so glad we visited! It was amazing how well preserved it is, and it's so much fun to wander through all the rooms and learn the history of this beautiful old castle. Highly recommended!

You know, if you have been to a few castles in your journeys, that they are like a box of chocolates. You Never Know What You Are Gonna Get. Sometimes it is a pile of rubble, or a an historic building that has been whitewashed and buffed up as a decorators showcase. And sometimes it is so Disneyesque that it... More

We were in Meersburg for a couple of days (all of them Rainy). You buy tickets in the "gift shop" which is 100 meters away. An English room by room brochure is available. There was a Gentleman in a "period" cloke to answer any questions as you cross the "drawbridge". Each room was very well described and showed actual artifacts... More

If you'er looking for and old castle this is the one to see. I came here on one of the last days of my month long business trip. I was staying in Friedrichshafen kept skipping this castle to do other things. I ended up here when I was looking for something close and I'm very glad I didn't miss it.... More

I had avoided touring the castle earlier this year but joined some friends that were set on taking the tour. I was glad I did. It was self guided and you had to follow a map in a brochure and look for room number signs to guide you. This system could be improved. Once we figured it out and got... More

I had never been to this part of Germany and fell in love with the area while I was there. My favorite stop in the area was Meersburg and this castle. The town is quaint and the castle tour was fun. We sprung for the extra tour which, unfortunately, was only in German but it was worth it to gain... More

So much fun to see a living history! The one thing we could have skipped was the Tower tour (only $1.50 extra) because we were pressed on time and that separate tour was conducted in German only. Be sure to explore with the guided brochure.
