Decided to take a quick tour on this castle, not as big as the usual castle but has many sections to visit. One place must visit if you are near Meersburg.

We were little hesitant to go into the castle, due to the price (Can't remember off the top of my head how much) however it was totally worth it and more. The castle has so many rooms and historic areas to explore. You can choose...More

This privately owned is castle is wonderful to visit. The day we were there, two tours were offered. One to visit the tower, the other to visit the kitchen and related rooms. The tower visit was available first. It involves a lot of stair climbing...More
