If you walk through the town gate and along Unterstadtstrasse or the lake promenade, you'll come to the harbour area and one of the first things to catch your eye will be the tall metal structure at the end of the breakwater. As you get...More

Unique statue that is not out of the way if you are walking along the lake, I do not get all of the parts of it and that makes up part of the fun

This is a very unique monument. Not sure what to think about it. No explanation. Beautiful scene around it. The lake and the Swiss alps are both stunning.

This is a really cool statue by the same artist that did many of the best works in Constance. It's right there on the Boardwalk, by the boat docks. There is no reason to go to Meersburg to see this, but if you are there,...More
