About the city
Erlenbach is the most populous town in the Lower Franconian district of Miltenberg, with over 10,000 inhabitants. It is ideal for lovers of various sports, high-quality delicate wine and educational culture. Panoramic landscapes with cosy streets can be seen from any corner of the city and provide quietness from the local hustle and bustle.
According to legend, as early as 1183, the city saved Emperor Frederick Barbarossa and was under his protection. This affected the trade and tourism development of the city. Continuing a long tradition, the synthetic fibre factory Vereinigte Glanzstoff-Fabriken AG was a magnet for foreign workers. The extensive capacity of the factory decreased the air quality. The typical sweet smell of viscose could be felt. But the opening of educational institutions, non-industrial companies such as BKK Akzo Nobel (health insurance company) and prominent Helios Hospital Erlenbach with more than 300 beds, with care for their employees and residents, began to require protection against emissions according to the standards of high-quality German medicine and environmental needs and achieved incredible results in this direction. Currently, the clinic and the city meet the necessary international standards and have high patient recovery results, attracting local tourists.
Air purification also contributed to the evolution of winemaking thanks to the warm microclimate and typical red sandstone slopes. Numerous winegrowers grow wine, including Pinot Noir, Muller-Thurgau, Silvaner and Riesling. After a break for wine tasting, guests of the city can explore the city's historical sights, such as the 1956 Martin Luther Church with a wall mosaic by Joseph Reiss. The city also sponsors an active sports life thanks to the Turnverein Erlenbach and the football club SV Erlenbach. A romantic evening can be spent in "Kino-Passage", which has repeatedly received awards for its outstanding selection of programs. Erlenbach is also famous for its education. Up to 6,000 people visit the Erlenbach local adult education centre each year.
The struggle for cleanliness and compliance with world standards gave the city a chance for tourism and medical direction of city development. The city's streets are full of shops, boutiques and delicious cafeterias. Erlenbach is proud of his perseverance and contribution to his future.
