Würzburg to Wipfeld

Good weather again today, but maybe a bit warm. We headed south from Würzburg and would our way thru the vineyards along the Main.

The Residence at Würzburg
We planned to stop for coffee in near Ochsenfurt but even though it was Saturday morning, we had a hard time finding a place open. Finally found a chain bakery near a gas station.

Lunch was in Scharzbach and the first few places had Würzburger Hofbräu signs so we continued on. Saw a little place with a Weiss-Rössl sign and we stopped. I recognized the name as brewery near Bamberg but forgot they were sold to Kaiser of Neuhaus early in the 2000's. So the beer we got was Veldensteiner (a brand name of Kaiser). Oh well.

Past Schwarzach the Main makes a big loop but there was an alternate path following the canal channel. We decided to try that but turned to early and instead followed an overland path that was quite hilly. It cut off about 6km so maybe it was worth it.

We soon arrived at the ferry across from Wipfeld, just as the ferry was docking. Perfect timing.

After checking in we went to the beer garden of the hotel, were they were serving Krautheimer beers from the nearby Brauerei Düll. After a couple we decided to wander across the street to the Anker Stube as the dinner menu in our place (Zehntgraf) was a bit limited.

The Anker Stube had beers from Roth in Schweinfurt. They had Pils and Hell on draft and a quite nice Schwarzbier in the bottle. Many were consumed.

Distance ridden: 76km
Total distance: 956km
