Today’s stop was Miltenberg, a town of less than 10,000 people located on the Main River (pronounced “Mine”). It’s a very picturesque town, with many half timber houses that date back to the 16th century.
The building on the right is the Hotel Zum Reisen, one of the oldest continually operating hotels in the world.

The Central Market
Looking down on the bridge from the Mildenburg Castle
The bridge was destroyed by a German bomb near the end of WWII, only the gatehouse and pillars survived.
This church was located just outside the city wall. Only Catholic churches were allowed to be built inside.
The houses all have a marking to indicate the profession of the original owner. This entrance way indicates that this was a baker’s home (yes, that’s a pretzel)
