My fathers birthplace, Dettelbach, This medieval town was first mentioned in 741 a.D. I spend my summers there with uncles and aunts, where I stayed in my grandfathers home built in 1560. I still hold a special connection with this historic town
Just as medieval are the narrow cobble stone streets and half-timbered houses. Particularly worth seeing is the late Gothic town hall, and the ensemble around the small marketplace below the town church. According to a legend, the architect is said to have planned the town hall, so that three people can enter the town hall simultaneously without being seen (outside staircase, passage, from the west side). Below the town church, a pillory with pedestal and iron bar and the inscription “For bad People” can still be seen.
I highly recommend getting the new Rick Steves “Germany” Books. They can be purchased right here
I have been living half of my life in Germany, then US, and traveling since then. My passion is cooking, painting and glass mosaic art. I try to re-create recipes I grew up with or tasted while traveling in Europe.
