A jewel of baroque architecture
The New Palace in Meersburg towers majestically above picturesque vineyards and the impressive blue waters of Lake Constance. This original baroque residence is still as beautiful now as when it was built in 1710. Its stately architecture and furnishings are impressive, with arched gables and rich ornaments outside and fantastic stucco and glorious frescoes inside.
A special highlight
The exhibition on the principal floor shows how the prince-bishops of Constance lived in their Meersburg residence with its magnificent state apartment and private rooms. As well as diverse topics such as hunting, music at court and the natural history collections for which the prince-bishops were famous at the time, the museum deals with the town’s later development to the present day. Visitors can explore the palace with an audio guide, on a guided tour or by themselves. Special audio guides for children will also get smaller guests interested in the highlights of the New Palace.
Programme of events
A varied and sophisticated programme of events is organised with outstanding concerts of classical music. Temporary exhibitions in the museum also offer new, exciting insights into the New Palace. Guided tours on various themes such as wine or life in the court of the prince-bishops allow visitors to delve into the palace’s 300-year history.
Café with panorama terrace
The café in the New Palace serves coffee and cakes as well as a small selection of exquisite dishes. End your visit on the terrace with a cup of coffee and enjoy the breathtaking views of Lake Constance as far as the peaks of the Alps!
Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 2 pm.
