Tauber Valley Wine Route – half-timbered houses, fine wine and open space
The 204-kilometre Tauber Valley Wine Route takes visitors to the wine-growing areas of Baden, Württemberg and Franconia. This is a part of Germany made all the more beautiful by the Tauber and Main Rivers flowing through it.
The Charming Tauber Valley holiday destination, which encompasses the Tauber Valley Wine Route, covers the area between Rothenburg ob der Tauber in the south and the River Main plus the towns of Wertheim and Freudenberg in the north. Visitors can marvel at the stunning cultural landscape, featuring pristine nature and must-see towns and cities, half-timbered houses and romantic little alleys. Spectacular panoramic views of the Main or Tauber Valley and the neighbouring regions can be enjoyed from the many vineyard slopes.
Alongside the remarkable flora and fauna, red sandstone and grey shell limestone define the scenery. Relaxed wine festivals, wine-tasting sessions and wine taverns provide fantastic opportunities to try some of the local specialities all year round. And seven castles, twelve palaces and four abbeys are open to the public too. Many people don't realise that the Tauber Valley Wine Route is home to lots of fascinating themed paths revolving around all things wine.
