Best location: Meersburg is without a doubt one of the most beautiful spots on Lake Constance - a region that really does not have to be stingy with its scenic attractions!
The pure romanticism here, at the transition from the Obersee to the Überlinger See, once inspired the famous poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff (1797-1848), who spent many years here.

The spirit of history, you can still feel in Meersburg in the alleys and streets of the city. And of course the magnificent buildings of bygone times bear witness to what was once here.
Today, Meersburg has a population of just over 6,000, but it has long since become a "city of millions": more than a million day trippers visit Meersburg every year, a million liters of wine are pressed here every year - the wonderful location with the lake as a "heat buffer" predestines Meersburg as a wine-growing region - and a quarter of a million guests stay overnight in Meersburg.
Staying longer is worthwhile: Meersburg cannot be appreciated in one day alone. Tourist highlights are, of course, the famous Meersburg Castle and the New Castle. More than 30 rooms in the castle, furnished true to the original, convey an authentic feeling of life in those days.
Tip: The "Dagobert Tower" can only be visited as part of a group tour. The spectacular view is well worth it!
The New Castle is known far beyond the region. Concerts and other events are often held here. The view over the lake from the magnificent castle terrace is magnificent. The lush "pleasure garden", which was already a central part of the palace grounds in the Baroque period, provides a Mediterranean flair.
It is true that most of the sights around the lake are within easy reach of Meersburg. But there is also much to discover in the medieval town center.
Or you can stay for the culinary delights: Meersburg's restaurateurs have now made an international name for themselves. There is something for every taste - from the noble restaurant to the cozy café to the rustic wine tavern.
Those who, like so many guests at the lake, are enthusiastic about zeppelin aviation should also visit the Zeppelin Museum in Meersburg, which is the perfect complement to the exhibits in Friedrichshafen in terms of content.
And those who would like to discover completely different facets would do best to come back during the fifth season: Meersburg is known as a stronghold of the Alemannic Fasnet and the humid and merry customs.
