My friend said I'd like Meersburg and he was right. It's built on quite a steep hill leading down to the Bodensee but a stroll round will take you through cobbled squares lined with brightly coloured gabled houses and quirky shops selling all manner of...More

Fascinating history here, with parts dating back possible to the year 630. Also the place where poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff (was on the 20 Mark bill) lived for last two years of her life. It's a good little hike from the dock, but worth the...More

This privately owned is castle is wonderful to visit. The day we were there, two tours were offered. One to visit the tower, the other to visit the kitchen and related rooms. The tower visit was available first. It involves a lot of stair climbing...More

This castle is not to be missed! After a disappointing tour of Neuschwanstein Castle, this one was so wonderful! There are no English tours available, so for one euro we bought a book that gave information about each of the rooms. We so appreciated being...More

This was the real thing used until the 1800s. It is very interesting to wonder thru and make sure you get the written English guide. If at all possible try to join the tour group which will go where the self guided tour does not,...More
