25 Aug -Wertheim & Miltenberg, Germany

25-Aug – After arriving in Wertheim, Germany, via the Main River (a tributary to the Rhine River) we stopped for a morning walking tour and shopping on our own. Wertheim is the most northerly town in the state of Baden-Württemberg. It is situated at the confluence of the Tauber and Main rivers. Most people have heard of the leaning tower of Pisa, but your probably have not heard of the leaning tower of Wertheim (Spitzer Turn [Pointed Tower]). The tower’s noticeable lean is due to 800 years of flooding rather than any architectural defect – a hazard of the town’s susceptible location on the banks of the Main and Tauber Rivers. Markers on the tower itself and other old buildings in Wertheim show just how high the water has reached over the centuries. Built in the 13th century as a lookout tower, the Pointed Tower also served as a prison for drunkards and quarrelsome wenches. If two women were deemed to be shrews due to their fighting and bickering with each other, they were locked in the tower for up to six weeks. Since the only entrance to the tower was located 30’ off the ground, the women had to climb a ladder and then be lowered to the bottom of the tower with ropes. We were then off to Miltenberg for a short stop.
