"The magnificent ruins of Montfort
resting on a mull -,
the most beautiful that I ever set my eyes upon."
This is how Annette von Droste-Hülshoff described the ruins of Montfort in her letters. The ruins of Montfort, however, were torn down in 1861 to make way for a "fairy-tale castle".
Today's Montfort Castle, which was built in the Moorish-style in 1866, is the magnificent landmark of Langenargen. Located on a promontory, almost a peninsula, jutting boldly into the lake, it is now a place to dream, celebrate, eat, drink and enjoy.
