Meersburg is an attractive small port on the northern shore of Lake Constance in the southwestern part of Germany.
Once a residence for the prince-bishops of Konstanz on the other side of the lake, the town centre is filled with evidence of its history.
The 'old castle' - the medieval Burg Meersburg - still towers above the surrounding houses while the 'new castle' - the Neues Schloss - sits above the steep vineyards that are a striking feature of the town.
The town is nowadays an attractive centre for exploring Lake Constance, with regular ferries across to Konstanz and the flower island of Mainau as well as to other destinations along the shoreline.
More details about the history of the town and the connection to wine production and the bishops of Konstanz is available on our Meersburg information page.
