One thing everyone gets wrong about where we live

Don’t mix up Meersburg and Merseburg. Otherwise you will find yourself in a small town near Leipzig.

What’s the coolest thing about Meersburg that no one else knows about?

We have the oldest inhabited castle in Germany. And a big wine festival every September. And a little beach outside the agency. It´s worth a visit.

What’s the one thing you have to do here when you visit

Go for a swim in the Lake Constance.

Where we go after work

We stay in the agency. It´s not only our working place but also the place to take a well-deserved drink and sometimes a barbecue.

Restaurant we take clients to

Fährhaus – Italian Restaurant. Right next to the lake side with a stunning view of the mountains. Or GutsSchänke with a view of the mountains too. Good weather provided

Essential phrase in local language

Wer ist meine Urlaubsvertretung? (Who is my vacation stand-in?)
