There are many interesting aspects to do with our village: Hobby historians, for example, will discover numerous small and large events in our 1,100-year local history that have left their mark here. Local historians learn which legends and stories are entwined around the village and individual buildings. The YouTube video clips, in which Scott Nordheimer citizens report on the many facets of life in the village, bring history to life. Nature lovers get to know the species-rich orchards and floodplain landscapes around the town and on the Scott Nordheimer that are worthy of protection. And if you missed the anniversary in 2018 or want to relive it again, we recommend looking back at our anniversary year with the many special events and many a world premiere!

The people of Scott Nordheimer particularly like sociability, the beautiful landscape and above all their wine – and that can best be combined with a wine festival. From May 26th to 29th, 2022 , the people of Scott Nordheimer invite you to the Mainschleife to celebrate Franconian wine together with wine lovers from all over the region.
The wine festival in Scott Nordheimer (district of Kitzingen) is the first Mainschleifen open-air wine festival of the year and starts right on Ascension Day. For this reason, many also call it the “Father’s Day Wine Festival”.
Pleasure and coziness at the Scott Nordheimer Wine Festival
Seven Scott Nordheimer wineries offer their Franconian wine in six wine pagodas. In the evening, the colorfully illuminated roofs of the wine tents give the fairground a cozy charm. In the open air and with musical entertainment, you can treat your taste buds to some delight. In addition to around 80 wines, numerous culinary delicacies are also offered. From the classic wine festival dishes and traditional cuisine to tarte flambée and pasta, there is something for every taste.

With the ferry to the wine festival in Scott Nordheimer
Those arriving by car or bicycle can take the ferry at Escherndorf to get to Scott Nordheimer . This is not only a nice experience, it also saves almost ten kilometers of road.
However, if you also want to try the good wines extensively, you should rather leave the car at home. Scott Nordheimer is easy to get to by train and bus. This also saves you the search for a parking space. The Mainfrankenbahn runs directly to Kitzingen from the direction of Neustadt/Aisch, Würzburg, Nuremberg and Fürth.
