Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web
Though much of Burg Meersburg Castle, the oldest inhabited castle in Germany, is occupied by the descendants of Carl Mayer von Mayerfels, more than 30 decorated rooms are open to the public. Discover what the fortress would have looked like in the Middle Ages as you wander through the armory, bathhouse, kitchen, knights' hall, and dungeon. Important German poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff lived here from 1841 to 1848, and you can see her living quarters and the room where she died. The tour includes access to one of the castle's towers with views of the Lower City and surrounding area. End your visit with a cup of coffee and a sweet from the onsite cafe in a grand Baroque hall. Guided tours are available in German. Audio guides are available in English.

  • Coming out stories of the middle ages is the Castle. It was a glimpse into life at the time, a spectacular castle. Clean flowers bloom in the pretty garden, visited in early May.

  • Small but very interesting keep (or castle?). The entry price is included in the some ship tickets. Different rooms with various information on the Jeep's life.
  • Beautiful caste with spots that have a great view across the Bodensee. Option to walk by yourself or take a guided tour.
  • I was in Germany for a month and I saw everything while I was there but this castle was the best place I went. My breath was taken away. On top of it being so full of rich history, it is the only castle that I went to (I went to 7) that let you walk through the entire building. It was really great to be able to see the whole place like it was intended to be seen. I love this museum.
