Meersburg, Private Guided Walking Tour

Travmonde OÜ

Step into a medieval fairytale in Meersburg, where cobbled lanes, a turreted castle, and local pinot noir create an enchanting atmosphere.


The medieval city of Meersburg is still an impressive sight today. From its cobbled lanes and half-timbered houses to its perkily turreted castle everything screams knights in shining armor and damsels in distress fantasies. And if you need a “boost” to enter this fairytale and feel like the hero of your story, try some of the local and famous pinot noir served in the local wine taverns. Meersburg and wine are inseparable, due to its hills towards the south and the mild microclimate of the lake that makes the region perfect for growing grapes. Therefore it was very sought after and needed a Fortress. This medieval castle is considered to be the oldest inhabited German fortress and also the town emblem. A local legend says that the castle was first built in the 7th century by the Merovingian king Dagobert I. In the fortress museum, we can see the entire medieval living area and the living quarters of one of Germany's best-known female poets: Annette von Droste-Hülshoff. Panoramic view of the old town and Lake Konstanz included!
