Exploring Miltenberg

The town center is the utterly charming Marktplatz, where half-timbered houses climb hilly lanes above a fountain and flowerbeds. Atop this assemblage rises Schloss Miltenberg; you might have to settle for an exterior view of this white-walled, steep-roofed stronghold, as it’s often shuttered; if the gates are open, cross the courtyard and climb the watchtower for a sweeping view over the town into the surrounding forest. It’s open only May to October Tuesday to Friday 2 to 5:30pm, Saturday and Sunday 1 to 5:30pm. Admission is 3€ adults and 2€ for children 11 and under.
