MEERSBURG

MEERSBURG THE MEDIEVAL VILLAGE OF LAKE CONSTANCE

 

This small town, dominated by one of the oldest residential castles in Germany, is undoubtedly one of the most characteristic medieval locations of Lake Constance (Bodensee).

Meersburg is divided into two parts: the lower part and the upper part.

 

 

The lakeside promenade, in the lower town, provides boat and ferries landings, a lakeside promenade, hotels, restaurants, bars and sport activities, while the upper town on the hill, holds museums, galleries, cafes, shops and vineyards. Both parts of the city have remains of medieval walls (including two ancient gates), and you can go back and forth between the two by a staircase or a street.

 

"Walking around the village in the evening and Having a romantic dinner with the view of the lake."

 

Meersburg offers a wide choice of culture and art with its incredible number of museums, such as: the Old Castle (with year-round guided tours), the New Castle (with Baroque rooms, art exhibits, and the Dornier Aviation Museum), the Bible Gallery, a Town Museum, the Wine Museum, and even a Zeppelin Museum that complements the larger Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen.

If you get too tired after a long day in the museums, you can relax visiting the panoramic Meersburg swimming pools and thermal Spa, right in front of the lake.

Meersburg is also a pleasant hub for excursions around the Bodensee, using lake steamers and car ferries or, for the sportier ones, using one of the several Lake Constance's cycle paths.
