Quality-certified trails and regional tours
Explore the charming Tauber valley and the neighbouring Main valley between Rothenburg ob der Tauber and Freudenberg am Main – and discover traces of the past.
The five stages of the Tauber Valley Panorama Trail take you through a delightful landscape, shaped by the course of the Tauber river, and along romantic pathways revealing traces of a bygone era. Your journey begins in the medieval town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber then continues through the Valley of Mills and along impressive stone walls to Creglingen. In Weikersheim you can visit the Renaissance palace. Climbing through the sloping vineyards the path then reaches the spa town of Bad Mergentheim with its historical market square. Past wayside shrines and through rows of vines, the panorama trail carries on towards Tauberbischofsheim via Königshofen and Lauda. On this stretch you can enjoy well-earned views overlooking the Tauber Valley and Beckstein. Once in Tauberbischofsheim, the Kurmainz Castle with its Tauber-Franconian Country Museum and the Türmersturm watchtower are worth a visit.
Glorious views await you en route to Gamburg Castle through the Apfelberg nature conservation area. Via Bronnbach Abbey and the winemaking village of Reichholzheim, the trail then reaches Wertheim, home to one of the largest stone castles in southern Germany. Offering fantastic views of the Main valley, the trail continues through the romantic Wildbach valley and climbs through Freudenberg wood to Freudenburg Castle. Another 440 steps and you’ve reached the trail’s end point in Freudenberg am Main.
Tip: Bronnbach Abbey
Built in 1153 this former Cistercian abbey is today used as a cultural centre for a variety of events. Don‘t miss the baroque alters and choir stalls, the abbey gardens and the orangery, featuring the largest outdoor fresco north of the Alps.
