More about the History of Wasserburg am Bodensee
Wasserburg (literally: a castle in the water) was originally founded in 784, at which time it lay on an island. It was part of the lands of the monastery of St Gallen. In 1384 it came within the power of the Counts of Montfort, who sold it in 1592 to the Fuggers. In 1720 the island became a peninsula when it was linked to the mainland by a causeway, some of whose sandstone columns still remain.
In 1755, the Fuggers gave up sovereignty over Wasserburg (Wasserburg vacation rentals | Wasserburg travel guide) to the Habsburgs in settlement of some debts, so the town then formed part of Austria, under the governance of Tettnang (Tettnang vacation rentals | Tettnang travel guide). In 1806 Napoleon Bonaparte transferred its sovereignty to the kingdom of Bavaria.
A steamship pier was built in 1872, the first railway station in 1899, and electric lighting was introduced in 1911/12.
