Florian from Photo Travelers asks in our blog parade about our top attraction Germany. Until last year I would have wavered between the Alps and the Baltic Sea. We really like these regions of Germany. Since this year, however, the choice has been easy for me. Our favorite travel destination in Germany is now neither in the extreme north or south, but in the middle of the country. The Main has particularly impressed us. Here's what we like so much about it:

Our top attraction Germany: the Franconian wine country

We already knew the Main and its surroundings from earlier short trips. This year, however, we took ten days to explore the region between Schweinfurt, Würzburg and Karlstadt in detail to look at. On a second journey we continued along the Main to the region around Miltenberg. That was worth it! We spent a lot of time and were able to look more closely at the small towns along the Main. Lovers of pleasure Regions, as we are, the Franconian wine country offers not only excellent wines and delicious food, but also numerous ways to enjoy it.

Places with beautiful framework

We like places that have grown historically, whose city centers contain many old buildings where you can still see how the people once lived there. In places like Wipfeld, Marktbreit or Ochsenfurt, which lie directly on the Main, it becomes clear, which important role the Main played for the development of the localities. In Miltenberg The well-preserved half-timbered buildings testify to how the warehousing rights helped the place to prosper.

If you like wine, you feel well in the Franconian wine country. Especially along the Mainschleife the vineyards rise steeply and offer ideal growing conditions. The sun ensures that the best wines mature here. If you take your time, you can see how difficult it is to cultivate wine in these locations on a tour through the vineyards. The more you appreciate the products of the winemakers in this region.

Würzburg - the magnificent

A tour through the Franconian wine country is only complete when a visit to Würzburg is on the plan. The city makes this region for us the top attraction Germany. With its impressive Baroque and Rococo buildings as well as the parks and their beautiful location right on the Main. The prosperity of the archbishops is evident everywhere in the city and its surroundings. The Rococo garden in Veitshöchheim Just like the Marien fort over the city of Würzburg and the Residenz in its center.

And what is your top attraction Germany? We are looking forward to your answer in the comments.

    When I read the headline, I could not even imagine what should be so great on the Main. But the pictures and the description have aroused my curiosity. I think there are a lot of great places in Germany that you just have not heard anything about.

      Hello Thomas,

      For me, Germany was always "the country you already know anyway." Until we came to new regions of Germany through travel blogging. Then we realized how diverse our country is and what beautiful corners there are. We knew the Main up until our trips in April and May, especially from crossing the motorway bridge on the way to Frankfurt to the airport. That’s it. So we were all the more surprised on our trip along the river from the pretty little half-timbered villages and the great views from the heights of the vineyards to the river. It is worth exploring this area in more detail.

      Best regards,
      Monika
