In the middle of the 13th century, Meersburg at that time consisted only of the upper town and the town wall built in 1260. Today’s lower town was then gradually added. At the upper end of the old town is the Obertor (Upper Gate) and behind it most of Meersburg’s historic buildings as well as a square with numerous restaurants, wine taverns and hotels. The upper town is a popular destination for tourists, as it is here that the most interesting sights of the Lake Constance town can be admired: Meersburg Castle, the oldest inhabited castle in Germany, and the New Castle. Here it is worth visiting the Dagoberts Tower with its unique view and exciting information about the witch hunt.
