It is the oldest inhabited castle in Germany. The central tower was first built during the 7th century, though the original structure is no longer visible. Burg Meersburg is known as the old castle, in the reference to the neighboring 18th century New Castle.
Today portions of the castle are open visitors on self-guided tours. The remainder of the castle is occupied by his descendants. - in: wikipedia
