First mentioned in documents from 1237, the town looks back on a colourful past. Wine growing and trade, shipping, fishing, wood and stone industry were the most important motors for economic growth. Today you can recognize the former importance of Miltenberg by the magnificent half-timbered buildings, for example at the old market place – known better as “Schnatterloch” – or by the “Gasthaus zum Riesen”, the oldest lodging for dukes in Germany. The Schwarzviertel (black quarter), the oldest part of the town, huddles between Main and Greinberg. A perfect background for scary stories and legends, which you can listen to on a guided tour.
