in the neighborhood
Rothenburg ob der Tauber is about 94 km from Neumühle.
Rothenburg’s medieval old town is famous for its sights, monuments and cultural assets. It shows hardly any structural modernization and therefore still looks very authentic and original. The city fortifications surrounding the old town are accessible. From here you have a beautiful view of the unspoilt river valley of the Tauber, whose originality is also sought to be preserved.
Rothenburg is rightly proud of its important museums, for example the crime museum, the Reichsstadtmuseum, the craftsman’s house and – world-famous – the Käthe Wohlfahrt Christmas Museum, which is open all year round.
The Kreuzberg is approx. 59 km away from the Neumühle.
As a place of pilgrimage, Kreuzberg has a centuries-old tradition that earned it the nickname “Holy Mountain of the Franks”. It was not until 1677 that the establishment of the Franciscan monastery began. According to the legend, it was actually supposed to be built in a completely different place, but the stones that were brought to the intended place day after day inexplicably disappeared overnight and found themselves on the Kreuzberg. So the monastery was finally built there and completed in 1692. The monastery has had its own brewery since 1731. The Kreuzberg beer is famous – after all, the Fathers already knew back then what was good for body and soul. A stop at the Klosterschänke is therefore definitely recommended on a trip to the Kreuzberg.
It is approx. 68 km to the Wasserkuppe.
The Wasserkuppe in the Rhön is nicknamed the „cradle of gliding“ and is the Mecca of gliding enthusiasts. The modern air sports center and the flight center invite you to participate, for example as a copilot on board a glider pilot.
Not that high, but at least up to the treetops, it goes in the climbing forest. Visitors who prefer solid ground under their feet can expect a summer toboggan run and a 360-degree viewing platform at a height of 950 m.
Surrounded by the natural and cultural landscape of the Hessian Rhön, the historically significant Wasserkuppe also invites you to explore it on hiking and circular trails or on bike and mountain bike tours. A diverse range of restaurants ensures tasty refreshments in between.
The distance to Homburg is 18.1 km.
The Homburg is the second largest and one of the most powerful castle ruins in Germany, it dates from the beginning of the 11th century.
Incidentally, the castle was never conquered over the centuries and even survived the Peasants‘ War of 1525 unscathed. However, in 1680 a devastating fire ravaged the manor house, after which the buildings began to gradually deteriorate. However, wind and weather could not completely conquer the mighty walls. The residential buildings of the main castle have been particularly well preserved, whereas today there is little left in the outer castle apart from the remains of the chapel built in 1342. The outer walls, including the gate and defense towers, have nevertheless been preserved in good condition.
You can explore the castle on your own or take a guided tour.
After your sightseeing tour, we recommend stopping off in an original wine tavern high above the Gössenheim vineyards. Round off your excursion with a good bottle and Franconian delicacies.
