Great value for money.

It cost us €9.50 each and as our children are under 6 they got in free. If you and your kids don't speak German buy an English program for 1 euro. Nothing is translated into... read more

It cost us €9.50 each and as our children are under 6 they got in free. If you and your kids don't speak German buy an English program for 1 euro. Nothing is translated into English so it makes the trip much more interesting. I have no problem with this as it's Germany, we chose to come here, and I'm... More

Had a couple of hours to spend in Meersburg before catching the ferry to Konstanz so decided to go here. We parked in the pay and display car park (2 hour max) in Kirchplatz just off Kirchstrasse opposite the Tourist Information Office which is a 5 minute walk to the castle. You get tickets in the shop opposite the castle,... More

This castle is well worth the stop and plan on at least two hours- three if you add the tower tour ( which we didn't this time). Make sure you plan for a three hour visit and pay your parking meter ahead of time. They will let you go out and return if you didn't plan your time at the... More

If you're near the town of Meersburg, you have to stop into this medieval castle. There are two parts, the original tower dates back to the 7th century, but was built around. Not much of that original is left, but remaining castle that was added on to is fascinating! The 'newer' part of the castle was used as the residence.... More

A great place with such history. The armor displays and the variety of designs was striking. Though a little hard to get to without walking it was well worth the exercise! The guard at the entrance could do his own show, how funny!

We really enjoyed our visit to the castle. We were actually on our way to Fussen and stopped in Meersburg for a quick visit and lunch. The town was great and I wish that we had stayed longer. The Meersburg Castle has a interesting history and the view of the lake from the castle grounds is fantastic. Their collection of... More

One of the few attractions open just before Christmas it was just gorgeous to roam through with only a couple of other families coming through, the children loved the collection of helmets and swords and the chairs and tables they could sit at to get a real sense of what castle life would have been like. Gorgeous views form the... More
