Hidden between vines, the Fürstenhäusle lies on a hill above the old town of Meersburg. The jewel built around 1600, was for many years the creative retreat of the poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff. Even today, the Biedermeier furniture and the audio and media stations give a lively insight into their lives and social environment.
