Modern adventure house
The vineum Bodensee is a modern experience house for wine in a historical monument and has an absolutely unique selling point. It appeals to all the senses at the various stations in the 600 square metre tour and invites you to join in and try out.
In the former historical Holy Spirit Hospital in Meersburg stands one of the oldest, largest and still fully functional wine presses in Europe. Around this Weintorkel from 1607, the vineum Bodensee has become a wine museum of the most modern type. The House of Wine, Culture and History is unique in Germany with its innovative concept.
That's why a visit to the vineum is particularly worthwhile
Fragrance amphorae invite you to sniff out typical Lake Constance wine aromas. At the in-house wine dispenser of the vinemathek, you can taste various Lake Constance wines and choose your own favourite from 16 possibilities.
Theme rooms bring wine to life in its various forms as a remedy, pleasure, intoxicating and lifestyle remedy. Rituals around the drinking of wine, the elaborate wine production of the past, the historical ownership as well as the complex tax system are illustrated in an entertaining and instructive way.
Which country has the highest wine consumption? Which grape varieties are cultivated most frequently worldwide? 101 wine bottles from all over the world represent their nation & exciting stories complete the exhibition.
The spectacular world of wine design surprises with unusual packaging, bottles and closures. Who knows that Undercover Pinot Noir is available in milk bottles? Today, wine labels are extraordinary messengers of curious messages.
Events and programme
There are public or bookable private guided tours and an exciting cultural programme on offer: alone, as a couple, with the family, on your own or with an expert guide.
The event series "kultur unterm Dach des vineum Bodensee" enriches the cultural offer of the city of Meersburg. A platform for comedians who still have little media presence - but a lot of personal presence.
The focus on regional artists is on the musical series "torkel trifft...," which offers a colourful mix of music in the vineum's Torkel room.
Nice to know: The lake wine book vineum Bodensee
The publication on the museum: Thomas Knubben, Christine Krämer and Andreas Schmauder have published an informative and entertaining volume entitled "Seewein" ("Lake Wine") on the basic scientific work on which the concept of the exhibition at vineum Bodensee is based.
The reading of "Seewein" opens up surprising and new perspectives on the cultural heritage of wine on Lake Constance. In the articles, the 11 authors outline the exciting and varied world of "Seewein" and thus provide the perfect complement to a visit to the vineum.
