In Veitshöchheim there are two primary schools, a secondary school and a high school. In all schools the lessons will be held in German. Of course, foreign languages, particularly "English", informed. I understand the question as to whether there is a school where the teaching takes place mainly in English? Such a school does not exist in Veitshöchheim. Sincerely Michael Zimmermann Michlshof am Main

"My husband and I lived in Veitshochheim for over 7 years on Obere Reidstrasse. We returned to the states April 1, 2014. We miss Veitshochheim every day. My question is do you know how old the church is in Gadheim. Thank You . ." (posted 09/15/2014)

The St. Mark's chapel was first mentioned in records in 1301. She was still dedicated to Saint James, who was their patron to 1666. But then took the "change" - the Holy Markus took his place. Gadheim, in whose district the chapel, often changed its owners in its history. Last 1976, when it came from Würzburg city after Veitshoechheim. 2001 celebrated its Gadheim Markuskapelle with a festive 700-year anniversary. Lavishly renovated the chapel shows since then as genuine, valuable and lovable gem. That the chapel at the "Franconian Pilgrimage" is today, witnessed a sunken shell in the access path. The Chapel is open weekdays completed. Visitors can look over the courtyard Report Kauppert and get the key. The St. Mark's Chapel is located in the district Gadheim to reach across the county road WÜ 3 Veitshoechheim-Günter life. Bus number 19 bus terminal WÜ - Günter life; Stop Gadheim
