The region of the Main-Spessart characterises through its variety. The proximity to Würzburg with all its cultural sights and the scenic fishing towns along the river „Main” are expecting you:

  • Residenz Würzburg
  • Fortress Marienberg in Würzburg
  • Chapel Würzburg
  • Veitshöchheim with Rococo garden
  • Moated caste of Mespelbrunn
  • Caste Johannisburg in Aschaffenburg

Additionally the region of the Main-Spessart characterises through the wide Forrest areas and the well-preserved medieval buildings. You can follow the steps of the famous Spessart bandits, and go through the myth-enshrouded woods and meadows, hike over hills and valleys. For those who are interested in visiting castles and museums, you will definitely enjoy it here.

Spessart is plain nature!

The town of the Main-Spessart-region have succeeded in preserving the medieval centres. You can stroll around in the town centres, go shopping or sit in a street cafe. Do not miss out on taking a look at the medieval castle of Mespelbrunn which is surrounded by moat, also romantically called fairy-tale castle.

Another appealing feature is the valley of Hafenlohr near Rothenbuch. It is an old cultural landscape, which is well-suited for bicycle and motorbike riders who want to enjoy a cosy tour with great scenery. Tight and curvy roads drag through the protected valley, whose wet meadows do not allow trespassing.
