Long Description:
Confluence spot near Castle Steinenhausen


Der Main ist der wichtigste rechte Nebenfluss des Rheins mit einer Fließstrecke von 524 km. Sein Flusslauf führt von Osten nach Westen, verläuft dabei entlang mehrerer fränkischer Mittelgebirge, historischer Kleinstädte und durch das fränkische Weinbaugebiet. Die Quelle des Weißen Mains liegt im Fichtelgebirge, die des Roten Mains in der Fränkischen Alb.

Bei Schloss Steinenhausen, südwestlich der Großen Kreisstadt Kulmbach, vereinen sich die Quellflüsse zu einem Strom („Mainwiege"), der bei Mainz in den Rhein mündet.

At Castle Steinhausen, southwest of the district town of Kulmbach, the source rivers unite a current ("Main cradle"), which flows into the Rhine at Mainz.
