Mühlheim am Main is just what you need when you’re bored with the fluorescent fun of the metros and yearn for something more soul satisfying.
Find this delightful little village on the banks of the River Main and you’ll never want to leave in a hurry. Packed to the rafters with local cultural events, great food and wine, and warm hospitality why would you want to go elsewhere?
Mühlheim am Main has its share of historic constructions that compel visits in the form of the old water tower that you’ll find on your way to the railway station. Made of basalt and bathed in a bygone era, this is just what you need to take you back a few paces and slow you down.
Another historic delight would be the last mill still standing in a picture perfect locale and in perfect condition. You can’t but admire the ingenuity evident in the medieval life style that lived so close to nature and reaped the benefits. (Mills (= Mühlen) were the name-giver for this town — there were ten of them, initially.)
The spires of the St. Markus Church will draw you to what can only be described as an awesome piece of architecture that you simply have to visit. The surprisingly modern interiors are quite a treat.
Well, you can come back to the future with a visit to the Rolls-Royce Museum that exhibits these beautiful machines in style. This is a private collection, so you’ll do well to get an appointment to see these beauties. Another destination would be the local museum housed in a delightful old gabled building.
As far as local culture in Mühlheim is concerned, you can’t go wrong with cabaret with the lovely Gerda on stage. There’s more in the form of theater, music performances, and orchestra that will make for quite an entertaining evening’s worth of fun.
Mühlheim am Main is certainly quite a destination where natural beauty is concerned. Make the most of it whether it’s boating, fishing, walking, hiking, or biking is what does it for you. This old mill town will certainly do its bit to set you back on your feet and invigorate your senses.
