Wertheim is a south-western German town that is often described as having a special Franconian atmosphere. Half-timbered houses, imposing castle ruins and a network of medieval alleyways make this a destination where traditional and contemporary culture combine.
 
Tourists exploring the town will no doubt want to see one of its star attractions - Wertheim Castle. Visitors who want to learn more about its rich and varied history frequently tour the 12th-century fortress, during which time they can enjoy unparalleled panoramic views of its surroundings.
 
Another popular choice is the Glass Museum - the only attraction of its kind in the state of Baden-Wurttemberg. The museum showcases various exhibits from ancient times right through to today's culture.
 
Glass-blowing demonstrations and the Christmas exhibition are particular highlights for travellers.
 
If you prefer to explore the great outdoors, Wertheim has various nature hikes and cycle paths that will get the adrenaline flowing. There are numerous packages to choose from, including a wine trail on bike.
 
No doubt you'll also want to test the local Wertheim cuisine, which is extremely eclectic due to outside influences. Don't be surprised to see paella, spaghettis and noodles among traditional German dishes.
