Hainburg is a compact little town that pretty much takes for granted its natural beauty and pastoral lifestyle. By no means can it be labeled a big city, but it does not lack for comforts if that’s what’s preying on your mind.
There it lies on the banks of the Main and gets on with the matter of living in its own placid little world. By the way, in 1977 it was merged with the neighboring Klein-Krotzenburg considerably enlarging its borders.
Hainburg is where you’ll find the preserved remains of an old Roman settlement. That should tell you plenty of its antiquity. In fact, the little town has had quite a turbulent past mainly due to infighting among overlords and the Thirty Years’ War.
These days it’s just another small town well connected to big cities like Frankfurt and Seligenstadt.
Hainburg’s prime specimen of medieval architecture would be the old Catholic Church of St. Nikolaus and the elegant Liebfrauen Chapel. The Liebfrauenheide deep in the Hainburg woods is also worth exploring.
The little grotto of Holy Mary of the Simeon-Stift is another delightful venue. There’s also the local library and the community center which gives you a good idea of what’s going on at the moment.
