Burg Meersburg

The Meersburg castle ("Burg") overlooks the lower part of this very picturesque and touristy medieval town. According to an old legend, it was built in the 7th century by the Merovingian king Dagobert I, but it probably dates back to the 12th century. It is guarded by a guy disguised as a knight (who takes off his armour if it's hot...), and you have to pay to enter.
