Langenargen Montfort Castle

Langenargen Montfort Castle


Moorish castle with distant view

The poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff is said to have been fascinated by Montfort Castle in Langenargen. Idyllically situated on a small peninsula in Lake Constance, the historic building is used today as a tourist destination and event venue. The castle was built in 1866 in the Moorish style by Wilhelm I of Württemberg and his son Karl I and is today considered the landmark of the small Lake Constance town of Langenargen. Both the foyer, whose decoration is reminiscent of an oriental fairy tale, and the view from the tower are impressive. This is open from March to October and offers a breathtaking view of the town center, Lake Constance and the Swiss Alps.
