Meersburg on Lake Contance
Meersburg on Lake Constance The particularly charming location of Meersburg, built on a steep hillside directly on the lake, attracted people centuries ago. It is said that the Merovingians already built the first castle, whose medieval complex still characterizes the cityscape from afar. Meersburg is one of the members of the German Half-timbered Road – one of the major tourist routes in Germany. The city owes its baroque silhouette to the Prince Bishops of Konstanz. They built magnificent palace complexes, and the baroque architect Balthasar Neumann, who was already famous at the time, was involved in their design.
