Special Meckenbeuren Travel Tips by Bettina Kraft
Why I like Meckenbeuren: With a population of approximately 13,000, Meckenbeuren is the largest town in this part of Baden-Wuerttemberg. Meckenbeuren is located near Lake Constance and is a popular tourist destination due to its close proximity to both the lake and hiking trails. Outdoors enthusiasts frequently make use of a variety of Nordic hiking trails (4.5, 7, and 12 km in length) located near the town. Recently restored, the Humpischloss Castle Museum in Brochenzell is an interesting site to visit. Besides a restaurant, the museum offers exhibits that focus on the trade and manufacturing activities that took place in this region during the previous centuries. Families with children should definitely consider spending a day at the Ravensburger Spieleland amusement park in Meckenbeuren-Liebenau. This park is based on the toys, puzzles, and games produced by the famous Ravensburger toy company. Even if you do not have a car at your disposal, you can easily reach Spieleland by catching a shuttle bus directly to the park from the Meckenbeuren train station. Meckenbeuren is also a popular site for those interested in taking the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. One of the numerous routes to Santiago runs directly through Meckenbeuren. Although you may simply want to while your time away in this bucolic town, you can easily take a day trip to either Ravensburg (6 miles away) or to Friedrichshafen (5 miles away), home of the famous Zeppelin Museum.

Verified & Approved - Quality Meckenbeuren Vacation Rentals you can Trust!
There is unfortunately a lot of scam and fraud on the Internet today and we read sad stories about families who booked a cheap apartment on a rental site only to find out later when they arrived that this apartment did not even exist! Therefore when you see our LLAG quality seal next to an apartment listing that means that we have verified and approved this particular apartment and you can be assured that this is a good choice when booking this one.
Of course, given our large selection of vacation rentals in Germany, Austria and Switzerland we cannot personally inspect every one of them. However, here is what we do to to ensure overall high quality and minimze the risk of fraud:
First, we are very selective and don't accept apartments of poor quality based on submitted description and photos.
We verify the owner's address, require a web site, and a valid phone number. With many of our property owners we talk with them over the phone on a daily basis and we have built up with them a strong business relationship over the years.
If we experience communication issues with a property owner, e.g. they respond too slowly to inquiries or customer requests, we investigate and possibly cancel our business relationship with that owner. Reason is if we are not able to successfully communicate with an owner, how can we expect that it should work out with a potential tenant?
We have a very high customer satisfaction rate (please read our customer testimonials.) However, if a customer reports issues we also immediately investigate. In case of incidents where we believe the quality and overall service of an apartment is no longer up to our standards we also remove that one from our site quickly.
Those quality measures helped us in the past to successfully protect our customers when booking a rental through us. Look for the LLAG quality seal that indicates that we have approved and verified that apartment.
