Sightseeing around Franziskushöhe

Boat trip with Maintalbummler
A contemplative trip along the river Main from Lohr to Marktheidenfeld and Gemünden gives you time to relax. In both pretty little towns there is enough time to explore – and if you miss the boat, there’s a public bus as well. Please ask for the schedule, it changes regularly.

Maria Buchen
The history of the place of pilgrimage Maria Buchen goes back to 1395. The first chapel was founded 1434. There were many changes over the centuries to the romantic little church and the monastery, but it is an active place with monks living and praying even in our time.
