"St. John, beautiful stained glass windows" Miltenberg Off The Beaten Path Tip by Trekki
Miltenberg Off The Beaten Path: 2 reviews and 6 photos
From the outside, this church does not look very interesting, but it has beautiful stained glass windows inside. They are modern ones but still very nice to look at. The church is a protestant one and was built end of 19th century, in the typical Miltenberg sandstone.
What is maybe even more interesting is that parts of the city wall are here and it is rewarding to start walking the backstreets from here. The Jewish cemetery is around the corner and from here there are also quite nice views over Miltenberg and the other side of Main River. The church is located at the hill slope.
Rather easy to find: from the tourist office, walk south (= uphill) and it comes directly into view. It is open during the daytime. The door is at the southern end, so walk up the stairs and then half way around the church.
