Karlstadt am Main (aka Karscht / Karscht am Mee) is a Main River cruise port in Germany. The town covers a total area of approx 98,11 km2 (37,88 ml2) and has a population of around 14,800 people (2015 census).

  • The town is located in Main-Spessart district (Lower Franconia, Bavaria). Largest vineyards in Karlstadt are Rosstal and Im Stein. There are also others in the outlying centres, especially in Stettener Stein (Stetten) and on the way from the main town to Gambach.
  • Winegrowing has slight economic importance today but still features great cultural significance. And even if few people in Karlstadt earn livelihoods from winegrowing, it's still important for the local way of life and self-perception. 
  • Schwenk Cement Works, Kohl Wood Veneer Factory and Düker Ironworks define the south end of the district. Besides these industrial plants, a lot of handicraft businesses have set up in Karlstadt. Another employer is District Council Head’s Office (Main-Spessart Landratsamt). There are also many inhabitants who commute to Wurzburg, 25 km (15,5 ml) away, and Lohr am Main, 18 km  (11,2 ml) away.
