JND: A few centuries later the very famous poetess, Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, lived in the castle. She died here too. Her sister, Jenny, married the first private owner of the castle, Baron von Laßberg. During her several stays here, Annette was very happy, because she could for once live a free life and let her creativity flow. Thus, she wrote many poems in the castle. One could say that she found her muse in the castle and enjoyed her time very much. So could our white lady who comes out by night be actually her? To be honest, we have never met a ghost in the castle. But who knows what's going on when we are asleep? Maybe Dagobert, the Merovingian king who built the first Meersburg tower, and Annette meet each other at night?
