"weekend in Michelstadt" Michelstadt by brendareed
Michelstadt Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 63 photos
Located in the heart of the Odenwald, Michelstadt is a wonderful little village full of half-timbered buildings. The town dates back to Roman times when nearby Roman settlements guarded the limes.
In the middle of town is the unique Rathaus (Town Hall) – the day we were there a wedding was taking place so we were not able to go into the building, but it did not detract from the fascinating architectural views of the outside. Later on we were treated to a horse-drawn carriage waiting for the bride and groom.
We passed through the Thieves Tower with its dry moat and checked out the Odenwald Museum and Toy Museum – both very interesting.
We wandered around the town and then headed over near the train station to check out the Schloss and Basilica.
On our way home, we ate in a nearby town named Mossautal at the Schmucker’s Brewery (hubby being a fan of the beer).
Michelstadt made a pleasant day trip and we have been back more than once. There is lots of hiking in the Odenwald and Michelstadt is a good place to stop for a meal or lunch after hiking.
- Pros:quaint peaceful town in the Odenwald
- In a nutshell:We will be back!
We had lunch down the road at Schmucker’s Brewery in Mossautal. The restaurant is rather popular and I highly suggest... more travel advice
Our tour book mentioned a lovely old watermill leading to this 13th century castle located near the train station.... more travel advice
