Dettelbach - General
It is situated in the Main valley, very close to the river. Dettelbach presents itself with its medieval town-wall that is still in very good condition with its two large sally gates and many small towers surrounding the historic town centre.
The narrow streets and old half-timbered houses invite visitors for a walk through the Middle-Ages.

"Wall and Tower"
If you look closely, running parallel to the street on the left side is part of the medieval wall and a tower. There is also the Dettelbacher sculpture way assembled in 2005 celebrating the 500-year existence of the pilgrimage to the church “Maria in the sand” (I did not visit this church so I have no idea if it still exists).
"On top of the Ritterburg"
This catholic church was built originally in 1444. An east choir loft was built in 1489. The "round tower" was built during the 1600s and the west choir loft between 1768-1774.
Moscow - Dettelbach
Up the Main valley is a small town Dettelbach. It can also be reached direct from Würzburg. The old-world little town is still surrounded by its XVth century walls, with 36 towers and two gates. There is the Handsome Late Gothic Town Hall (1492-1512) and beautiful Franciscaner Chirch. Franziscaner Church is near Franziscaner Hotel where we stayed.
We stayed there a day and a night on our way to Wurzburg. We enjoyed our staying and advise this Franconian town as a good sightseeing near Wurzburg.
