Sylvia Ackermann’s Claviersalon Miltenberg e.V. has become an important part of the Miltenberg music scene.
The Claviersalon Miltenberg contains an important collection of valuable historic keyboard instruments, including a unique stock of early fortepianos.
In addition to various concerts, the Claviersalon Miltenberg also offers a number of educational classes. In small groups, you can work with musicians, musicologists, and conservators in a relaxed atmosphere.

– Jakobusmusik –
The “Kultursommer” (“summer of culture”) takes place in the yard of the Mildenburg castle from late July to the first Sunday in August.
Numerous different concerts from chamber music to rock, from brass music to song writers, but also literary readings and a poetry slam cater for all tastes. There is always something for everyone.
The amazing backdrop of the castle yard thrills artists and audience alike.
In rainy weather some of the events take place in the “Old Town Hall”.
The performances in our local “Liqueur Theater”, the annual guest performance of the theatre company “theaterachse Salzburg” in the inner ward of the Mildenburg castle as well as a number of irregular performances attract and intrigue an enthusiastic audience from near and far.
All performances and the movies in the cinema are in German only. For further information please see our German pages.
Miltenberg does not only stand out with its medieval old town showing half-timbered houses, romantic alleys, and hidden corners.
With its lively urban culture, it also provides a quite spirited, vibrant “young” middle age ambiance.
For a long time, the Mildenburg castle could only be admired from the outside. After some considerable renovations, the inside now hosts an additional municipal museum. Modern and contemporary art engage into a dynamic dialogue with historic, orthodox icons. Just like the rooms of the castle offer an extensive view far across the country, the pieces of art invite you to take a view across the limitations of life and the world. The artists’ spiritual incentive to cross these limitations inspire the visitors to broaden their own views and grasp the unique dimension of the museum.
The collection of Romanian reverse glass icons (donated by Dr. Joachim and Marianne Nentwig) is unparalleled throughout Germany. The artworks of modern and contemporary art (i.a. a collection by Dr. Jürgen Lenssen) comprise well-known artists such as Barlach, Beuys, Fräger, Lange, Lehnen, Morgner, Pechstein, Polke, Stötzer, Stoltz and Willikens.
Information on the history of the Mildenburg and a 360° panoramic view are available on the website of the Burglandschaft Spessart and Odenwald.

The Gallery owner Cornelia König-Becker is convinced that even away from agglomerations and metropolitan areas, art can set a fresh accent.
An active exchange and a network with friendly mutual contact has been established in cooperation with towns and schools, the district administration, associations and art initiatives and especially through her exhibitions in the gallery in Amorbach.
The gallery-concept in a nutshell:
Cornelia König-Becker loves art of all kinds of different eras and genres – the world of art is so abundant.
Exhibitions in the “Galerie am Tor” (“Gallery at the Gate”) display contemporary art and art referring to the issues of our time or traditional subjects of art history.
The gallery combines works of local artists with those of national and international renown. Theme-based or group exhibitions in the “Gallery at the Gate” always show the variety of art, recount the diversity of life.
The exhibitions are usually accompanied by music events, concerts, presentations, lectures, convivial or informative get-togethers which are intended to create a culturally inspiring and entertaining venue.
Fri – Sun 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm and by appointment

Armin Neuberger sketches buildings and streets in the Miltenberg region with great enthusiasm.
Outside, often huddled to a wall or the side of a house, he seems to blend in with his surroundings entering a world far away from the daily grind and then sketches. He says that sketching in day-to-day life decelerates. You forget the time, perceive your surroundings intensely, and might have unforgettable encounters. You could say that Urban Sketching is sustainable, because you remember all these details when looking at your sketch. It is a wonderful feeling, he says, and it would make him happy if many people felt inspired.
You can find his sketches on Facebook at www.facebook.com/imservan where he also publishes a short-term drawing schedule. He appreciates everyone joining him spontaneously. Just come by and take part.
If you don’t have a Facebook account, you can also find him on www.instagram.com/imservan
Are you a group of 3 – 5 people and want to learn the basics of sketching? Feel free to send your request to email@example.com
