The Mainzer Tor (Spitzer Turm) is a late medieval gate tower first mentioned in 1379 on the western edge of the old town of Miltenberg and was at that time the extreme western boundary point of the city. Above the gate passage is the coat of arms of the Archbishop of Mainz, Adolf I of Nassau, in whose reign (1371–1390) the mighty tower was built. In the year of construction, the town of Miltenberg had an extension of 2.5 kilometers between the western and eastern gate towers.
2. Kastell Miltenberg-Altstadt
The fort Miltenberg-Altstadt was a Roman cohort fort of the Principate, whose garrison took over for security and surveillance tasks at the southern end of the Main Limes and at the northern beginning of the "Vorderes Limes", a section of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Upper Germanic-Raetian Limes" (ORL). The garrison, located in the Roman province of Germania superior, is now located in the district town of Miltenberg in Bavaria.

4. Würzburger Tor
The Würzburg Gate is a late medieval gate tower first mentioned in 1379 on the eastern edge of the old town of Miltenberg.

In the hook stones outside and inside, the drop gates ran up and down.
The Ringwall Greinberg, formerly Ringwall Monbrunn or also called Römerschanze, are the remains of a prehistoric Celtic ring wall at about 430 m altitude around the summit of the 452 m high Greinberg above the Main valley, 1200 meters east of the church in Breitendiel, a district of Miltenberg in the district of Miltenberg in Bavaria.
