The city of Ochsenfurt am Main is not only worth a visit for the wine. The city describes itself as the “City of Towers”. This is because the city wall of Ochsenfurt is almost completely preserved. City gates and towers still watch over the city and give it a medieval flair. The New Town Hall from the 15th century and the magnificent half-timbered houses in the city center also contribute to this. With its two breweries, the city is not only popular with wine lovers.

Wurzburg on the Main
Although Würzburg is a larger city, wine plays an important role there. This goes back to the time of the archbishops. These grew wine on their estates along the Main. But the hospitals of the city also made a name for themselves with their wines. In the citizen hospital, you can enjoy wine in the courtyard of the historic building as it has done for centuries. The Juliusspital also owns a vineyard today. This is now making a splash as a VDP winery with its excellent wines.

Miltenberg for a wine weekend
For the last wine town on the Main on our wine weekend in the Franconian wine country, we first leave the river banks and drive to Miltenberg on the Main in Churfranken, Miltenberg is especially interesting for wine lovers, because here - in contrast to the previously mentioned wine places - more red wine is grown. The region owes this to the loam and clay-rich Buntsandsteinböden and the situation in the basin between the Odenwald and the Spessart. This kettle layer ensures a particularly mild climate. Therefore, Burgundy wines grow under perfect conditions on the main slopes around Miltenberg. Of course, Miltenberg also celebrates the wine.
