Some like to start their exploration of any German town by first visiting its museum(s) to get a feel for the history of the local culture. In Flörsheim am Main, that means visiting the Heimatmuseum.
This museum contains a gallery of paintings from the 18th century (with the majority of the work coming from local Flörsheim painters). There is also a large collection of pottery from the late 18th century and early 19th century, all from the local countryside. Admission is free to the Heritage Museum on the first Sunday of the month between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.
The next museum stop on the list would be the Main Tower, which was built around the middle of the 16th century and is the oldest building still standing in Flörsheim. It was an early fort used for the protection of the Main river and to help control shipping traffic.
Once the history of the area sinks in after visiting the local museums, it’s time to bask in the natural present beauty of the town. Stroll along the Wicker Wine Trail and pass the Mountain King Wilhelm and the Nonnberg and take part in some of their wine tastings while enjoying the beautiful scenery. On the way back down the trail, you’ll pass through vineyards and old village churches, including St Ann’s Chapel near the Meadow Mill.
After traveling down the Wicker Wine Trail, you might want to visit the Rhine-Main Regional Park for a bit more exploring.
Speaking of wine, the Wicker Wine Trail isn’t the only place in Flörsheim with wine tasting. There are many wine-shops in the city and any of the winemakers will be happy to share their insights and help you find the perfect wine for any occasion.
Don’t forget to ask around while you are there to find out where the nearest wine-tasting event is.
