Miltenberg-Wertheim Cruise

25 June

Miltenberg is a picturesque village on the Main (pronounced “mine”) River, which creates a realistic feeling of Bavarian life in medieval times owing to the Old Town being lined with well-preserved half-timbered buildings. This was a late sleep-in day, as it is a long journey from Rudesheim.
