Altes Schloß Meersburg
Altes Schloss or the Old Castle, is what brings the name to this city. Built more than a thousand years ago, this is a well-preserved castle. Meersburg, translated means "Castle on the Sea". The street I told about, will take you up to the town, where the castle is, in fact the castles are *because there is a new one also*.
Neues Schloss Meersburg
For New Schloss (Castle) you have to walk a few more steps up. The Schloss is very much like typical new German castles, a big building colored in lighter shade with a green garden in front. What is ultra-unique about this castle is the view! A co-traveler called this "the culmination of the day trip to Meersburg". You can spend hours sitting here, enjoying the breeze over the lake and the magnificent view. I was told that the Alpine range can be seen from this height, however bad the bad weather ditched me!
