Fotoeins Friday: Meersburg on Lake Constance

With vineyards on gentle slopes and grand castle and fortress structures over the shores of Lake Constance, Meersburg appears to materialize out of the autumn fog as the 30-minute ferry from Konstanz arrives in the early morning hour. The sun rises higher in the sky and the fog eventually dissipates in the warmth. That’s when the town really gets to show off: boats of all sizes on the lake, cars pouring off multiple ferries, people on streets outside with ice cream and in cafes and bars flowing with coffee, beer, and wine.

Meersburg is also listed on the Deutsche Fachwerkstrasse (German Half-Timber Framework Road). I made the photo above on 23 September 2017 with the Canon 6D, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/800-sec, f/16, ISO1000, and 58mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at as

    In Summer Meersburg is overcrowded, but in Spring and Autumn it is really nice. I could also tell where the local stork of Meersburg to be found, but this is now too late.

      Hi! I was fortunate to have visited during autumnal equinox, and with great weather, there were lots of people out and about around the Bodensee. That’s why I decided to take one of the first ferries from Konstanz to Unteruhldingen via Meersburg, so I had a stop at the latter to change boats. Although the lake area was still grey, foggy, and cool, the town was just waking up for both resident and visitor. Later that afternoon on the return ferry to Konstanz, conditions were ideal for this photo, and naturally, there were more people out and about under the sun. Thanks for your comment!
