Main Street Vinotheque Tour of Volkach

Accompany your English-speaking local guide Martha Gehring on a stroll along the newly-styled Main Street of the small Franconian town of Volkach.
Our "Vinotheque Tour"evokes the Mediterranean flair of the Old Town. We stop at three very different wine showrooms to experience how each winemaker interprets their philosophy of Wine and Design - historic, innovative, traditional or vintage. Naturally people will hear a lot about how the wine is created. We'll chat together, comparing notes about our impressions, and when we go to the cellars, we can experience the development of "our" wine "from vine to glass". Martha presents each wine in an informative and amusing manner.

The Vogelsburg Tour

Make the most of your time at the Vogelsburg to find out more about this unique, historic location! A qualified local English-speaking guide will take you on a short tour to explore the former castle and monastery with its surroundings.
During your stroll you will discover interesting and noteworthy aspects of the over 1100 years' history of the Vogelsburg as a fortress, monastery and destination for visitors. Its centuries-old spiritual tradition can be best experienced in the Vogelsburg's own church, the recently redesigned chapel "Maria Schutz"("Our Lady of Mercy").
From our vantage points the Balcony of the Main Loop and the vineyard "Vogelsburger Pforte" beneath the former monastery walls (not accessible to the general public), you can enjoy the breathtaking view across the Main river valley, taking in some of the most famous wine-growing villages in Franconia. Your Tour Guide will show you the river meander which forms the Loop of the Main, explaining why for many centuries high-quality wines have been made from the grapes grown here on the steep slopes under favourable climatic conditions.
To accompany the tour, we can offer you a glass of local sparkling wine or a selection of three wines from our wine estate, the Juliusspital in Würzburg.
