Germany: Meersburg

Meersburg is a town of Baden-Württemberg in the southwest of Germany at Lake Constance. About 5,600 people are living there. It is famous for its charming 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"). One of Germany's most celebrated poets, Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, lived her final years at Meersburg Castle, from 1841–1848. On the back of the card, you see a special postmark of famous Meersburg Castle.
