Meersburg New Palace

From 1750 until its resolution in 1803 the Meersburg New Palace was the residence of the prince-bishops of Constance. Even today the Palace still looks very impressive with its monuments based on drafts by Balthasar Neumann. The palaces' garden terrace offers an unrivaled panorama view, which allows you to get a glimpse of the Swiss shores of Lake Constance.

Additionally, the prince-bishops rooms shine in their full splendor. The museum shows not only the rooms but also tools for hunting and musical instruments, the "Prince-Bishops Naturalienkabinett" (a cabinet of curiosities), and explains the prince-bishop of Constance's dominion.
