Welcome to Lohr a.Main!
Lohr a.Main is a town of around 16 000 inhabitants in the Main-Spessart district in Lower Franconia. With its charming old town and significance as a major economic centre for the region, it is a magnet for both tourists and entrepreneurs.
The earliest known reference to the town in a document dates back to 1295. To this day, traditional industries such as the glass-making, wood-processing and iron industries are represented in the town. Did you know, for example, that the
typical "Maggi" (seasoning) bottle is produced here in Lohr?
For several decades now, Lohr has also made a name for itself throughout Germany as the birthplace of Snow White. There are clear parallels between the story of Snow White in the Grimms' fairytale and the life of the daughter of a rich 18th century resident of Lohr. Both guests and locals are confronted frequently with evidence of Snow White's presence throughout the town. So keep an eye out for her!
The highlight of the year here in Lohr is the Spessartfestwoche festival week. For the duration of this festival, which generally takes place in the last week of July, the town goes wild. The beer tent, music, fun fair and Lohr's legendary festival beer make for an unforgettable atmosphere on the festival site down at the riverbank.
