Located on the River Main, Miltenberg is notable for the many beautifully preserved half-timbered houses and it is a pleasure to stroll through the Frenconian town with savoring abundance of historic ornaments. To cite a few spots, the Hauptstrasse or the main street, about a...More

There is not much you can say about the castle itself as entry was not available when we visited, however the views over Mitenberg and the Main River made the steep climb worth it. We found it more interesting accessing the castle by going up...More

The path is a little steep but it's all worth it! It gives you the full view of the beautiful town of Miltenburg, with the Main River and its boats, the church towers and the beautiful bavarian buildings. Perfect for photos or just enjoying the...More

We hiked up the stairs, steep but not too hard. Wear proper footwear as some areas are uneven. The view of the River, greater town area was worthwhile. What was even better was the nice forest trails up behind the castle that lead to higher...More

It is a nice uphill walk from the market square of Miltenberg. The views of river and town are spectacular and the castle itself is an interesting visit.
