DREI AM MAIN

The city of Miltenberg and the towns of Bürgstadt and Kleinheubach founded the Tourism Association Miltenberg Bürgstadt Kleinheubach as of 1st January 2003. The objective was to be stronger together and to offer our guests better and more extensive information.

As of 1st January 2019 the awkward name was changed to DREI AM MAIN. The logo of DREI AM MAIN depicts the hills of the Odenwald and Spessart forests with the Main river between them.

The team of the tourism information will be happy to assist you with queries and requests regarding bicycle and hiking tours, tips for outings and many other issues. We are from here and  always have one special recommendation or the other – customized for each visitor!

Of course we also welcome suggestions for improvement or ideas enabling us to  continuously improve our service. Bike and hiking maps, souvenirs as well as books and CDs relating to Miltenberg, Bürgstadt and Kleinheubach are on sale. We also have a variety of free brochures at your disposal.

We also hold information on events in our member towns and sell tickets for events arranged by the cultural department STADTKULTUR Miltenberg.

We look forward to seeing you.

Miltenberg, Bürgstadt and Kleinheubach are all located next to the Main River, in the midst of two larger regions, the so-called Spessart and Odenwald. There is easy access from all directions:

  • Via autobahn A3 from Würzburg take exit “Wertheim” and simply follow the signs towards Miltenberg
  • Via autobahn A81 take exit “Osterburken, Ahorn” or “Tauberbischhofsheim” and follow the road towards Hardheim along the river Erf valley until you reach Miltenberg
  • Via autobahn A3 from Frankfurt take exit “Aschaffenburg-West” and follow the federal highway B469
  • Via autobahns A5 or A67 there are two options:
    • Either take exit “Bensheim”, (from autobahn A67 take exit “Lorsch”) and follow the scenic road “Nibelungenstraße” (B47) until you reach Amorbach where you turn on B469 to Miltenberg;
    • Or you change autobahns from A5 (or A67) to Motorway A3 heading for Würzburg until you reach the exit “Aschaffenburg – West”. There you take B469 which goes straight to Miltenberg
  • Via the autobahn A45 take exit “Stockstadt” and follow the federal highway B469.
  •  

You can reach Miltenberg or Kleinheubach from Aschaffenburg by train within half an hour. Bürgstadt does not have a railway station of its own, therefore it is recommended to take a local bus or taxi to reach your destination in Bürgstadt. You can find the schedules here: www.bahn.com/en, as well as here: www.bahn.de/westfrankenbahn.

All our towns can be easily reached by local busses. Busses run regularly between 8 am and 7 pm. Fares are reasonable and busses are a good alternative to going by car. Treat yourself to being chauffeured! It is important though to check schedules and services beforehand as some busses are “on demand” and you need to register by telephone to make sure the bus service is running.

Barrier-Free

Nice to have you here!

The centre of Miltenberg mainly represents the architecture and the plannings of the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Era. Unfortunately the cobblestones are more suitable for carts than for wheelchairs. When the houses were built, people considered the narrow valley and the frequent floods, which made it sensible to use stairs. But nevertheless, people with physical disabilities can still enjoy their stay here, even if they may need some help here and there.

We know that disabilities and the resulting impairments are equally diverse and personal as the people affected. Unfortunately, a page like this can never cater for such a variety. The focus is thus on visual impairments and walking disabilities.

Further tips and assistance can be found on the website of our colleagues at the Geo-Nature Park Bergstraße-Odenwald.

By train: The railway station in Miltenberg has lifts for people with walking impairments. 

Some of the scheduled buses are wheelchair accessible. The stops will be called out on request.
If you have any questions please feel free to call the bus companies Ehrlich (+49(0)9371-6005) or Hauck (+49(0)6022-7051) on the phone.

The tourist information, where we are, unfortunately has only limited accessibility for wheelchairs. During the town hall’s opening hours you can enter the building through the rear entrance, go out through the main entrance where you will find us in the porch. If you have a mobile phone you are welcome to give us a brief call, if possible we will come outside or open the rear entrance for you, if the town hall is not open.

There are the following banks in Miltenberg:

  • Raiffeisen-Volksbank: The head office in the north part of town (opposite the station) and the branch in the Luitpoldstraße are wheelchair accessible.
  • Sparkasse: The head office in the Mainstraße is wheechair accessible if you use the entrance in the yard (the yard is accessible via Ankergasse or Hauptstraße).
  • The branch office of the Deutsche Post (Postbank) is in the Brückenstraße, near the railway station and it is wheelchair accessible as there are no steps.

 

Banks in Bürgstadt:

  • Sparkasse: The branch in the Hauptstraße 1 is opposite the Churfrankenvinothek and has no steps, making it wheelchair accessible.

A representation of the association VdK Bayern, a member of the European Disability Forum, is in the yard behind the head office of the Sparkasse in Miltenberg.

All public toilets have one wheelchair accessible stall. Except for the one at the parking deck “Altstadt” they are all open every day from 6 am to 10 pm. The toilet at the parking deck is always open; a special key (“Euro key”) is required for the accessible stall.

In addition there is a wheelchair accessible toilet in the town hall, which is avilable during the opening hours of the town hall (the rear entrance in the Untere Walldürner Straße is accessible).

Only the Restaurant and Hotel Landhaus Adler in Bürgstadt is both wheelchair accessible and with a certificate of the association VdK (member of the European Disability Forum).

Entrances and toilets that can be reached with a lift or are at ground-level can be found in the Café Hench (in Miltenberg) and in the Gasthaus Centgraf in Bürgstadt. In the Kalt-Loch Bräustüble both the entrance and the ladies’ room are accessible without any stairs, the men’s room has only one step.

In all restaurants the service staff will be equally happy to help, like for example by reading the menus for you if your vision is limited.

Most of our guided tours are also suitable for wheelchair users. The cobblestones may be bumpy and taxing but not a real obstacle. There are no stairs or steps. If you are visually impaired the pleasure may be limited, as there is a lot to see. If you are hearing impaired, you can book a sign language interpreter. 

The boat tours on the Main river are also suitable for wheelchair users. Although the valley of the river Main is absolutely worth seeing, the boat tours also appeal to all other senses.

The indoor and outdoor swimming pools in Miltenberg and Bürgstadt are also wheelchair accessible. If you are visually impaired you may perhaps need some assistance for the orientation in the area of the changing rooms, lockers and showers.

The area of the Michaelismesse (“Saint Michael’s Fair”) is wheelchair accessible (including exhibition tent and beer tent). Only some individual stands can perhaps cause some difficulties.

For the of the old part of the town with the pedestrian area and the shops the same information applies as to the guided tours: The cobblestones may cause some inconvenience but are no real obstacle. Most shops have one or two steps for which you may need some assistance. However, the entrances and the interior of some shops may be a bit narrow for wheelchairs or walking frames. Usually the sales persons will come outside and help whenever they notice a wheelchair user in front of the shop looking like he or she would like to buy something.

All traffic lights have dropped kerbs. 

The palace garden in Kleinheubach is accessible and even, so this English-style park is quite inviting if you want a leisurely stroll. 

Hiking:
Along the Main river and its tributaries Erf and Mud you will go on tarmacked combined bike and foot paths without any rises, falls or obstacles.

In the forests of the nature park Odenwald and Spessart the foot paths are mainly gravelled or in their natural state, uneven and sometimes narrow. In addition there are rises and falls, some of which can be quite steep. However, the gravelled paths can be used by sporty wheelchair users.

Unfortunately there are no tactile or audible way markings, but if you can find your way using other features, or if you are accompanied by someone who can see well, you will be able to enjoy a multitude of sounds and smells and forget about all troubles.

If you want to go on a small trip to the surroundings, you will find some additional information on the websites of our colleagues of Spessart-Mainland (page is in German only) and of the Geo-Nature Park Odenwald.

Museums:
Unfortunately the Museum Stadt Miltenberg is not wheelchair accessible because there are many stairs inside, leading to the various levels. If you are visually impaired and understand German you may enjoy a number of interesting acoustic images. An audio-guide is also available in English and a few exhibits can be touched.

The opposite applies to the Museum Burg Miltenberg: It is accessible for people using wheelchairs or walking frames, there is a lift leading to all levels. On the other hand the exhibits are paintings, drawings and sculptures which require eyesight.

In the Museum Bürgstadt there are a ramp and and a lift.

If you are interested in an event in the Old Town Hall of Miltenberg, you can reach the hall in the ground floor without having to climb any stairs. If the event takes place in the “Bürgersaal” on the upper level, you can call the STADTKULTUR (cultural office – Tel. +49(0)9371-404156) during their office hours in the week before the event to ensure you can enter through the ground floor. There is a lift going from the ground floor to the first floor (and to the mezzanine floor in between with the toilets). If you are visually impaired, you may need someone to help you find your way.

The cinema „Schlosstheater“ is not wheelchair accessible, you need to go upstairs. If you are visually or hearing impaired, you can easily get inside, however, the films are only shown without subheadings for the hearing impaired or audible descriptions for the visually impaired. And they are usually in a synchronised, German version.

The Churfrankenvinothek in Bürgstadt is wheelchair accessible. If you are visually impaired the staff will be happy to assist you.

St. Martin’s Chapel in Bürgstadt can be entered by wheelchair users who have someone to help them get over one single step. The impressive murals, however, are worth seeing.

The ruin of the Centgrafenkapelle (Hundred Man’s Chapel) in Bürgstadt is in the forest but can be reached by sporty wheelchair users.

In the monastery Kloster Engelberg in Großheubach the inn, church and meditation garden are wheelchair accessible (a stairlift leads up to the inn).
