River Crusie – Miltenberg an Schloss Lowenstein

by in Gremany

Miltenberg

The River Princess docked in Miltenberg. A small town on the Main river. With a local castle, as appears to be customary in south western Germany:

Scholss Lowenstein and wine tasting

Family Lowenstein was once a once princely family (Furst zu Lowenstein–Wertheim-Freudenberg). The family¬† Lowenstein now holds some titles (with I suspect, much wealth) and run an excellent (and we hope, a very successful) winery.

They also have a very nice “country house” juts like this one (apologies for lens distortion):

More Main River

After the tour of the family chapel and wine tasting, we did more cruising up the Main river, towards Bamberg and Nuremburg. With a castle (of course) along the way:
