Maintal’s name translates to “main valley”, already describing the desirable setting of the town with its multiple districts or villages stacked together (one of which bears my last name as its name!).
The river Main runs along the town and provides a wonderful place to enjoy a scenic stroll.
The array of mountains that frame Maintal add to the enchanting character of the little spot. The combination of a river and valley make it a charming town for you to relax and recuperate from the stress of normal daily life.
When you are in downtown be sure to stop in to some of the numerous little shops that decorate the prosperous little town. After a little retail therapy be sure to sample a delicious meal at the restaurant Al Boschetto. If you are a fan of wine, grab a glass of Maintal’s infamous apple wine at a cafe or restaurant and enjoy the new and unique flavors it offers.
The little parks that occupy parts of the town are the perfect place for a nice afternoon rest, weather permitting, as you get lost in the peacefulness of little city life.
To add a bit of speed and adventure into your vacation head to the Indoor-Kart 2000. About 5 miles out of town this indoor go-cart racing rink has about 500 meters of track for you to race around. Though a little more on the expensive side with the going rate at about 18 euros for 10 minutes, the rush of the racing cars is well worth it.
Meadows of fruit are another element that add to the picturesque landscape created by the valley, river, and surrounding mountains. The relaxed atmosphere lures you into the proper state of ease when on vacation. The unique cultural points and nearby options for fun and excitement make the town a delightful stop while making your way through Germany.
All in all, Maintal is a charming little town in a beautiful natural setting. I enjoyed my time there a lot (I lived there for a while.)
