    The Catholic pilgrimage church "Maria in the vineyard" is located above the Franconian wine village Volkach on the Mainschleife in the Lower Franconian district of Kitzingen. The late Gothic church is located in the middle of the vineyards of the main Franconian wine-growing region on the Volkacher Kirchberg. It still houses an important work of art by the carver Tilman Riemenschneider.

    The pilgrimage church of St. Maria im Weingarten is located - surrounded by vineyards - above Volkach. The church was built in its present form in the second half of the 15th century. Originally planned was a three-nave construction, which was carried out only in a single ship. The church was especially well-known by Tilman Riemenschneider's rosary Madonna from 1521-24 (picture: 6). However, to what extent it comes from Riemenschneider itself or 'only' comes from his workshop, is still unclear.
    The depiction of St. Anna with her daughter Maria and the baby Jesus ("Anna Selbdritt") (picture: 5) was created around 1520 based on a template from Riemenschneider's workshop. The center of the church as a place of pilgrimage is the Pietà - here a late Gothic wooden sculpture showing Mary and her dead son (picture: 7).

    Volkach offers a great old town with many half-timbered houses, a very beautiful market square and, if there is no Corona, there are also many beautiful cafes, restaurants and cozy seating. Anyone who has been to Volkach will come back

    if you are a little lucky and the exit door is open, you can take a look inside the church and at the Riemenschneider Rosary Madonna

    Believers have been visiting this place of pilgrimage since the late 14th century. The main goal of the pilgrims is a hand-carved Pietà from around 1370.
