Meersburg Winemakers Festival

Since 1974 wine friends from near and far meet in September to savour Lake Constance wine and Meersburg’s bakery, butchery and fishery specialities on the Castle square. Here you will have the unique opportunity to taste the wine of various vineyards of the Lake Constance region and thus get an overview of local wine growing. Besides Meersburg vineyards, winegrowers from Hagnau, Konstanz and Bermatingen are represented at the wine show on three days, from Friday to Sunday. Delights reaching from the cheese platter to Lake Constance fish are served with the wine.

The musical programme is also worth a visit. Brass music bands perform general music on two stages for the entertainment of the wine festival visitors. A varied programme is offered from Friday to Sunday. The traditional inauguration of the Wine Festival on Friday from 17.00, accompanied by a performance of Meersburg Boy’s Brass Band, the Fanfare Brass and the Municipal Band, as well as the traditional wine festival morning pint on Sunday morning with Meersburg Boy’s Brass Band, are an integral part of the festival. The youngest visitors of the wine festival are not forgotten about. On Sunday a diversified programme with child care is provided for children.

The Meersburg vineyards at the northern banks of Lake Constance are famous within Germany. The rosée "Weissherbst" wine is a speciality of the region.



Meersburg is a town in Baden-Württemberg in the southwest of Germany. It is on Lake Constance.

It is known for its medieval city. The lower town ("Unterstadt") and upper town ("Oberstadt") are reserved for pedestrians only, and connected by two stairways and a steep street ("Steigstrasse").

The name of the town means "Castle on the Sea", referring to a castle which, according to a tradition from 1548, was built here in 630 by the Merovingian king Dagobert I.

The commune obtained the status of free city in 1299, though nominally still under the Bishop of Constance. In 1803 it was annexed to the Land of Baden.

The town is home to two castles, the Old Castle and the New Castle. The Old Castle, built by Merovingian King Dagobert I in the seventh century, is one of the oldest surviving castles in Germany. It is in private ownership. German poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff lived there for eight years and purchased the Prince's House. The New Castle was built in the eighteenth century. Originally the residence of the bishop of Constance, it was used for various purposes after the Secularization of 1803. It is now a museum. There is also an expanse of half-timbered houses, and two medieval town gates, which are the remains of the fortification.

Meersburg is the northern terminus of a car ferry service to Constance. On the opposite side Meersburg is connected to the region by the B 31, a major road that leads from Breisach (on the French border) to Lindau (on the Austrian border), largely bypassing all parts of Meersburg. To exit to Meersburg and to get to the car ferry, one takes B 33 to Meersburg and Constance.

Meersburg is also reachable by pleasure boat services from Lake Constance to Überlingen (to the west), to Lindau, Bregenz (to the east) and to Constance opposite.
