“Full of interest and history”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

This is the 'New Castle' built in the 1700s (have a look at the 'Old Castle, and you'll understand why they moved out!). Its a beautiful building, light and airy, and well kept. Even the loos are decent!
Lots of displays, and history regarding the Prince Bishops of Germany, and their powers. Most displays have an English translation on the information panel, and the rooms have laminated boards, with information, all in English as well as German.
The terrace restaurant is good, and not overly expensive, with stunning views over the lake.
Entrance fee might be high, I can't comment, as we had purchased a 7 day 'Go Anywhere' ticket for the Lake Steamers, which also gives free entry to a lot of the local attractions.

We attended a wedding feast in the Neues Schloss Meersburg. It is a beautiful, elegant palace with beautiful grounds and a gorgeous view overlooking Lake Constance.

“Nice chateau but expensive”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

This is lovely looking building, but with not very much to offer inside. It is also expensive to enter but it's saving grace is the stunning terrace and gardens that overlook Bodensee.

The views are pretty spectacular but other than that it is pretty average.

“Very nice castle museum showing history near Lake Constance”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Be impressed by the history of Meersburg, near Lake Constance. Home of many famous names, such as Anton Mesmer (inventor of hypnotism) and many kings and bishops. Beautifully restored. Interesting for history-interested travelers

“Average”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

We visited the new palace in Meersburg. The building itself was beautiful but we found the exhibitions were not to our taste. However we enjoyed the garden and the beautiful view over the lake. The church was very beautiful especially as it was quite small.
