Meersburg The Essential
Meersburg is perched high above the edge of Lake Constance. The upper town is built around the Marktplatz, where the Steigstrasse, lined with half-timbered houses, originates. The imposing Old Castle was the home of the poetess Annette von Droste-Hülshoff. From the terrace of the New Castle there is a view over the lake and the Säntis mountains.
