Michelstadt is a really beautiful town. Worth a visit. Walk around and see the Rathaus. There are restaurants in front of it where you can sit and enjoy a coffee or beer. You could spend half a day wandering through the streets and garden.

Such an amazing experience to attend a wedding in the old Town Hall. The wedding was officiated upstairs, and the reception was in the open courtyard of the Rathaus.
