“Culture in Meersburg
The living quarters and staterooms of the New Palace show how the Prince Bishops lived during the Baroque era. The “picture-book town” of Meersburg has always attracted artists, such as painters and writers. Visitors to historic Meersburg Castle can see the rooms where Germany’s greatest poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff once lived and worked.
Concerts at the New Palace and Open-air Music […]”
“VINEUM Bodensee – House of Wine, Culture and History”, set in the town’s newly restored cultural monument with the historic wine press from 1607 at its centre, is dedicated to the world of wine around Lake Constance. The Bible Gallery gives insight into the relationship between art and religion. For people interested in the history of airship navigation, the Zeppelin Museum displays historical collectors’ items from the time of the “flying cigars”.
Regional Wine in Meersburg
What better way to get to know a wine-growing region than by sampling its wines. The State Winery and Wine Growers’ Association hold wine-tasting sessions four times a week. […]”
Meersburg Therme is a spa situated right on the shores of Lake Constance. The large indoor pool is connected to the outdoor pool so that visitors have the opportunity to swim outside and enjoy the unforgettable views of the lake, even during winter, as the water temperature is kept at 34°C all year round. Another highlight is the spacious sauna area with a choice of saunas and steam baths.”

“Neuschwanstein Castle Is A Disney Inspiration Designed By A Mad King
By: Anna Todd
This castle is a real-life fairytale oasis.
August 01, 2019
Once upon a time (the 19th century, to be specific), in a kingdom far, far away (an alpine town in southern Germany), a ruler named "Mad" King Ludwig II designed a medieval-style château called Neuschwanstein Castle. He didn't do it for a strategic or defense purpose, though—he just did it for his own amusement. Nevertheless, it remains a real-life fairytale oasis to this day. […]”
“Fit For Two Disney Princesses
While Ludwig's story doesn't have a happy ending, his castles did inspire a man who is known for crafting happy endings: Walt Disney. Sleeping Beauty's Castle was inspired by Ludwig's Neuschwanstein, as was Cinderella's Castle. As Today I Found Out states, the Bavarian castle's "dainty turrets and romantic views," as well as its "cylindrical towers" and Romanesque style made it the perfect architectural model for both Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.”

cold evenings at the castle Hohenschwangau🏰
“These two famous castles belonging to the Wittelbachs are 1 km (½ mile) across a valley from each other, near the town of Schwangau. Bavaria's King Ludwig II (1845–86) spent many summers during his youth at Schloss Hohenschwangau (Hohenschwangau Castle). It's said that its neo-Gothic atmosphere provided the primary influences that shaped his wildly romantic Schloss Neuschwanstein (Neuschwanstein Castle), the fairy-tale castle he built after he became king. It has long been one of Germany's most recognized sights.”

The beautiful Town Hall of Wernigerode, Harz
“The popular town of Wernigerode with its historic town centre and lavishly restored and colourful half-timbered houses lies on the northern edge of the Harz Mountains. The epithet "colourful town of the Harz Mountains" was coined by the German writer Hermann Löns at the end of the 19th century. The town hall on the market square, the crooked house, the smallest house and the oldest house are just some of these features that make up Wernigerode's rich half-timbered idyll.
Also worth seeing are the remains of the town fortifications, the Krummel'sche House, the front of which is completely covered with a carved wooden façade, and of course Wernigerode Castle®, which towers majestically over the town and provides visitors with interesting information about the 800-year history of the counts and princes of Wernigerode in living rooms, some of which were originally furnished by the German aristocracy. The castle gardens (terrace garden and pleasure garden) are part of the 'Garden Dreams', a state project. A circular walk offers a wonderful opportunity to combine a visit to the castle, terrace garden and pleasure garden with a hike with a great view. […]”
