MEERSBURG NEW PALACE

The panoramic setting of the New Palace in Meersburg is unique: The view from the terrace of the palace across Lake Constance is overwhelming. This was the residence of the Prince-Bishops of Constance in the 18th century, who had moved their royal seat to Meersburg after the Reformation. The interior of the palace impressively demonstrates the power of the baroque Prince-Bishops. Ascending the magnificent staircase, you come to the Bel Étage with its staterooms and private accommodation for the Prince-Bishop. The history of the palace is presented in a newly designed museum.

This spot, touching because of the royal love story and compelling because of the panoramic view of the vineyards and today’s metropolis, has long since become one of the most popular tourist destinations.
