Description

Mainhölle and BildermeerMainhölle (actually "Mainhelle") are the names of the quarries above Bürgstadt.

The Buntsandstein is the basis for the prosperity of the Bürgstädter wine and the prosperity associated with it, which also made the emergence of the "Bildermeer" in the Martinskapelle possible.DirectionsFrom the "Stutz" hiking car park above Bürgstadt, the Kulturpfad leads over two loops through the Bürgstädter cultural landscape.on the shorter walk (approx.

3 km), one is led from the town hall to the Martinskapelle, which invites one to intensively observe.

Unique is the interior painting of the Martinskapelle with its 40 medallions, which show the history of salvation.

Together with older representations in the altar area they are a jewel of the church architecture of the Renaissance.

both longer distance of approx.

10 km, which follows now, one circles the Wannenberg.

Walking north you will find the Stutzkapelle.

The marked path then leads the hiker to the quarries, where long sandstone columns, so-called haystones, were broken, and to an archaeological, reconstructed gate of a ring wall from the Urnfield Age (1200-700 BC).

On the way back, one passes the Centgrafen Chapel, which was not completed as a result of the 30-year war, before reaching the hikers' car park again through the Bürgstädter vineyards.
