WHAT A GEM OF A TOWN!
Miltenberg is a picturesque medieval little town, by the Odenwald forest and the river Main.
The area was settled in the 2nd Century AD by the Romans as part of their great defensive wall called the Limes.
This well preserved Town felt like time had stood still!
The oldest inn in Germany and its picture perfect old market square surrounded by some magnificent Franconian style half-timber framed houses, is just a small taste of what else there was to see.
It is a Town where you MUST WALK.
The Fortress called Mildenburg was built in the 13th century and used by the Prince Electors and Archbishops of Mainz for collecting taxes and as a frontier garrison and military outpost towards the borders and Principality of Würzburg.
Wine production was important in the 14th century, and this brought much wealth to Miltenberg.
Wine was exported to Nuremberg and Frankfurt.
Today, Miltenberg still produces first class wine which visitors can taste in the old wine cellars.
