Schweinfurt, Main

Schweinfurt, Germany

Nobody can blame you for falling in love with Schweinfurt at first sight. The attractive houses of this picturesque German town situated on the River Main offer enough photo opportunities to make you want to stay here for the rest of your life. Pastel coloured facades offer a multicoloured experience every time you step onto the pavement.

But culture vultures will be pleased to learn that there's more to do here than simply exercise your legs. The Kunsthalle Schweinfurt gallery offers a fascinating look into the local art scene, with permanent exhibitions including a fascinating one on nature and imagery. 

That's the art critics satisfied but what about the historians? Well, the equally formidable Museum Georg Schafer has it sorted, with an invigorating programme that will keep anyone entertained.

Finally, we hate to go back to the walking again, but there are a number of gorgeous parks including the Fichtelgarten and the Motherwellpark which are well worth checking out. Don't neglect the opportunity to explore Chateaudunpark.
