Castle Meersburg on Bodensee

A highlight of our trip was to the  Meersburg Castle.  We took a ferry across the Bodensee (largest lake in Europe) and arrived in Meersburg.  We toured the castle which was built in 635 AD!  Amazing! There were many twists and turns, it was cold, and without the lighting that was added years later, it would have been VERY dark!

These pictures show the entrance to the castle, the knights room to keep watch, the kitchen, and of course the room filled with armor and swords of the time period.

It was so interesting to actually be in a building that was created almost 1500 years ago.  The kids loved it…they especially loved the well in the middle of the castle…the picture of that came out too dark for this blog:)
