Landmark of the city

The famous landmark of the town is the castle of the Counts of Zimmern. Meßkirch Castle in its present form was built between 1557 and 1563 on behalf of Count Froben Christoph von Zimmern, the author of the famous Zimmerische Chronik. It is regarded as the earliest four-winged complex of the Renaissance north of the Alps. The highlight of the castle is the 31-metre-long banqueting hall with its coffered ceiling dating from 1563, one of the oldest in Germany. With its extraordinary ambience, Schloss Meßkirch offers an ideal setting for events of all kinds: from classical concerts in the ballroom to rock-pop concerts in the castle courtyard to cabaret events in the castle cellar, there is something for every taste. The various rooms can also be rented for private festivities, conferences and seminars.

Diverse museums

In the Meßkirch museums, visitors can admire and experience art, history and automobiles up close. Integrated into the cultural and museum centre Schloss Meßkirch, the Kreisgalerie Schloss Meßkirch is spread over two floors. The permanent exhibition on the ground floor contains selected works from the art collection of the district of Sigmaringen. Four temporary exhibitions per year aim to contribute to the knowledge of Upper Swabian art history as well as to communicate the current art development in the region to the public.

Since 1999, the Oldtimerfreunde Meßkirch und Umgebung e.V. have built up a museum for their motorized treasures in the former remise. Different automobiles from the time between 1923 and the 1960s are exhibited.
