Old towns of Germany: Steinheim am Main (Hanau)

After some time, I'll present you another small old town from Germany. This one is even smaller than the ones I already presented (see my signature), but still worth to show.

Steinheim has ca. 13,000 inhabitants and is located at the Main river. Nowadays it's a district of the city of Hanau (88,000 inhabitants), 20km east of Frankfurt am Main in Hesse.

Here are the pictures:

So let's begin with some random houses and street scenes. If you wonder why there is like nobody on the street: It was a sunday last autumn, and Sundays in Germany are always dead outside summer

Never been to this town. Looks very nice. These defence towers are great.
Frankfurt metro area really has some hidden gems.

It's always a pleasure to see pictures of small german cities... Most of them are absolutely lovely and cozy, everything looks so well-kept...

That's the first time I hear about Steinheim and I liked it a lot... Btw, the pics are great, thanks for sharing!
