We stopped in this lovely riverside town on our way from Miltenberg am Main to Ulm. This town has “medieval” written all over it. The town derived its fortune from trade and from the mining of salt. It has been a place of residence for human beings since around 4000 BC but the modern-day history of the town really begins in the 12th century when the large church of St. Michael is consecrated. The town is made up of a wealth of half-timbered and stone houses and public buildings. We had a walk around, took in the highlights, then had lunch at a brewery restaurant on the other side of the Kocher River from the Altstadt.
