Friday, August 21, Wertheim, Germany

Wertheim, first recorded history in 1129, is a lovely small town at the confluence of the Main and Tauber Rivers. It was not bombed in WWII and has a lovely old city, with a Lutheran Church and a Catholic Church.

The leaning tower of Wertheim.

What else? The blue house!


Lots of “timbered houses in this part of Germany.


The Lutheran Church, back and front.

An impressive castle ruins is just above the city, with a restaurant at the castle base and steep stairways offering access to the top of the tower.

Karen climbed to the top!

See the flag? That's the top!

The reward? A wonderful view of the rivers and the town, and our boat at the town dock.

An added handicap: all the stuff hanging around her neck!
