Walking through an original part of the castle that was built about 700AD is a great way to time-travel! This is a beautiful castle with wonderful displays. Well worth the entrance fee.

Meersburg is a lovely town. Last year when we visited we went to see the New Palace so this year we thought we should try the Old Castle. It was a fantastic visit - full of history and fascinating. In our view, it was much better than the New Palace. Following tips from other reviewers, we easily found the ticket... More

The tour of the castle is self-guided with a brochure. The information was great, but the numbering seemed a bit confusing, especially near the end. For what it was, it was over-priced.

This was the best castle we have ever toured with authentic furnishings. We used the brochure to do a self-guided tour. Loved it.

It was an interesting Castle, some real old parts and a special guided tour up in the Dagobert-tower.

We didn't go inside on this trip but have in the past. It is well worth it even if, like me, you are not a culture vulture. Beautiful views of the lake on a good day.

It is the oldest inhabited castle in Germany. Located about 400 metres above the lake. Very interesting history dating back to the 7th century. Self guided tours.

If National Trust is your standard, stop now, but for something out of the ordinary...press on. One of those places I would actually pay to leave, one nonetheless gets a pretty good idea of just how grim it must have even to be a part of this world. Nothing in English (so, why should there be other than the fact... More

Perched on the top of a hill, in the town centre. Overlooks the lake. Fab views. Unfortunately visited on a very wet rainy day in March. Little else to do in the "town" Worth a visit if you are a castle fan. In all honesty i would have given it a miss had the weather been better and had their... More

it's worth a trip - if nothing else than the great views of Lake Constance - I stood at one window for quite awhile just admiring the view - You can see Switzerland :-) - it's self guided and the displays are great - you really get a feel for how they lived - my husband is a descendant of... More
