      On to the last stage in the rain. The first stop is Kitzingen with a well-preserved medieval old town. With its unmistakable, multi-towered silhouette, the market square forms a closed monument ensemble of commercial and town houses. The old Main Bridge, first mentioned in 1300, is a multi-arched, medieval stone bridge. At the eastern bridgehead is the cross chapel by Balthasar Neumann.
      We continue to the half-timbered Dettelbach. The late Gothic town hall and the ensemble around the small market square below the town church are particularly worth seeing. Below the town church, a pillory with a base and iron bracket and the inscription “for bös Leut” can be seen. The Maria im Sand pilgrimage church is also worth seeing.
      On the way through the vineyards back to Volkach we visit high places
      Via Volkach the viewing platform Terroir f, where the vines of the great Escherndorfer Lump site thrive. Here you will be informed about the topic of climate and climate change. After all, the Escherndorfer Lump is one of the hottest locations in Franconia.

      In thick fog and 8 degrees, we first start to Veitshöchheim Castle, a former summer residence of the prince-bishops of Würzburg, and later the kings of Bavaria. The palace complex is known for the surrounding rococo garden.
      Würzburg is the seat of the government of Lower Franconia and the Würzburg district office and an important school and university location.
      The Marienberg Fortress (also called Marienfeste) was expanded in the Gothic period and then in the Renaissance and is the most famous landmark of the city.
      The Würzburg Residence was classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981. It was built in the Baroque style between 1720 and 1744.
      The destination for today is Sulzfeld in Lower Franconia. The place is located in the southern Maindreieck between Kitzingen and Ochsenfurt and has an almost completely preserved medieval fortification with 21 towers. Sulzfeld is also considered the birthplace of the Meterbratwurst, a variant of the Franconian bratwurst. In a local inn, the consumption record is over six meters. The landlord assures: "Whoever breaks this record has all consumption costs free".

      The Snow White town of Lohr is located on the eastern slope of the Spessart at a bend in the Main, which swings to the south here. This is where the Mainviereck begins (southern part of the Spessart). Lohr offers an architecturally closed ensemble of half-timbered houses in the Franconian style. The largest connected timber-framed building is the Gasthof Krone, first mentioned in 1567. The Lohrer Castle is also worth seeing.
      It continues in the direction of Gemünden. In Gemünden the Sinn flows into the Franconian Saale and this then into the Main. For this reason, Gemünden am Main is also known as the “three-river city” or “Franconian three-river city”. In Gemünden, the Main changes its direction from northwest to west in order to pass from the Main triangle, which ends at Gemünden, to the Mainviereck near Lohr am Main. The ruins of the Scherenburg, also called Scherenberg Castle, protrude on a rock above the town center of Gemünden. We spend the night in Erlabrunn am Main. The Maria Hilf pilgrimage chapel, built in 1876, is located on the Volkenberg, which offers a view of the town and the Main Valley.

      From Beckstein we start climbing towards Lauda through the vineyards and the sun can be seen. The last few kilometers on the flat bike path to Wertheim lead to Tauberbischofsheim. The castle and numerous Renaissance houses are in the old town. The Tauberbischofsheimer Rathaus is one of the few in southern Germany that was built in a neo-Gothic style. The last stage on the Tauber bike path ends after a picturesque forest and meadow landscape in Wertheim, where the Tauber flows into the Main. On the way we make a detour to the Bronnbach monastery with orangery and the herb garden. From Wertheim we then follow the Main cycle path. The 527 km long Main is the only river in Europe that flows in all four directions.
      Wertheim is the northernmost city of Baden-Württemberg and is located in the northwest of the Main-Tauber district at the confluence of the Tauber and the Main, at the foothills of the Odenwald and the Spessart on the other side of the Main. Wertheim Castle, the town's landmark, was partially destroyed by a powder explosion in 1619 and in the Thirty Years War in 1634, and was never rebuilt.
      The destination of the stage is the wine town of Homburg am Main with the castle on a tuff rock.

      Today we head towards Tauber in gray autumn weather. Against violently windy, but luckily no rain. For the first time we drive through many small villages and come about halfway to Uffenheim. The next town, Aub, has a beautiful market square. You can take a break here. Up to here an unspectacular stage. Unfortunately there is a lot of road without a bike path and few sights.
      It's going to be nice behind Aub. Here we ride the beautiful Gaubahn cycle path to Biberehren. Here
      we come across the Taubertal cycle path, which is 101 kilometers long and connects Rothenburg ob der Tauber with Wertheim in Tauberfranken.
      Today's destination is Röttingen with half-timbered houses around the market square and in the entire old town and the baroque town hall (around 1750) and Brattenstein Castle. The place is also known as the city of sundials because of the 2.5 km long sundial circular path with 25 sundial objects. The place seems a bit deserted.

      We start in Volkach when the weather is very cloudy and first follow the cycle path on the Main Canal and then on the Main. Wonderful paths over side streets and bike paths. The 25 km / h wind speed gives us trouble despite ebikes. We leave the Schwanberg in the Steigerwald and steer towards our destination Iphofen. The place has a picturesque, completely preserved medieval and baroque old town has a complete city wall with four city towers.
