The major district town of Wertheim

- culturally -



With its medieval alleyways, half-timbered houses, small squares and the imposing castle ruins from the 12th century, the former "Residenz" town of the counts of Wertheim at the point where the Tauber flows into the Main has a very special atmosphere.


Wertheim is one of only a few towns to maintain the character of a small old Franconian town. This is where the traditional and modern come together and cultural diversity, idyllic landscapes, the openness of the locals and the uniqueness of the sights attract countless visitors every year.


The "Grafschaftsmuseum" and Baden-Württemberg's only glass museum, numerous art and building monuments, such as the collegiate church, Angels' Fountain and the "Schlösschen im Hofgarten" await your visit. The late Gothic St. Kilian's Chapel is seen as one of the finest Gothic chapels in Germany. The view from the castle over the branches of the Spessart and Odenwald and the confluence of the Main and Tauber is breathtaking.


In addition to museums and numerous historical sights, cultural life in Wertheim is enduringly defined not least and to a great extent and with great commitment by the numerous cultural associations, by the organisation and support of concerts, exhibitions and much more.


A visit to the Cistercian monastery in Bronnbach is definitely worth a visit. The monastery combines the Gothic and Romanesque building styles and with its church, cloister, Joseph and Bernhard Halls is a "must" as you travel through our region.
