Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer this view with daily life scene, in one of the main streets of the beautiful village of Meersburg, I hope you like, then some letters about the city.

Meersburg is a town in Germany, located on the shores of Lake Constance, in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, a city of considerable tourist weight, being one of the most visited points of this great lake.

It has a marked medieval character, like many of the cities in that area, and it is a beautiful and tourist city that is located on the lake. This makes its view of all this, with the Swiss shore in front, the Alps behind it, and the city of Constance (Konstanz, in German) on the nearest side, worth a visit alone.

Any visitor will discover immediately that another of the economic protagonists of the city is the production of wine, since their vineyards neatly and respectfully fill the slopes and their cellars, taverns and wine warehouses remind us constantly by means of German words related to it: Wein (wine), Keller (winery), Winzer (wine grower), etc.

From the city you can take a ferry across the lake to Switzerland or to the city of Constance (this works constantly, as a bridge between the two cities), or can be accessed by train or road to Bavaria or, just beyond , up to Bregenz, already in Austria. This is the third country that shares land in this great lake fed by the Rhine, which provides direct water from the Alps. Another ferry links the municipality directly with the island of Mainau.

The population is named for the first time in the year of 988 with the name of Merdesburch. Between the years of 1210 and 1803 it belonged to the Bishopric of Constance.
Towards year 1300 the villa received the privilege to celebrate a weekly market, happening to be used and to develop for it the inferior zone of the city, until then occupied practically only by fishermen.
