Aschaffenburg is bursting with Bavarian charm, beautiful architecture, history and green open spaces. Situated in northwest Bavaria, bordered by the River Main, the picturesque town is a great tourist destination for any traveller.
The crown jewel of the city is the Johannisburg Palace. Admire its red sandstone facade nestled among green trees perched on the river bank. Inside you can find an art gallery, museum, chapel and the world’s largest collection of cork models!
The Palace Gardens are wonderful to explore and offer fantastic views of the river. Don’t miss out on the Pompeiianum, a stunning unique replica of a Roman villa in Pompeii, and embrace the Mediterranean vibe.
Aschaffenburg’s Old Town is a delightful labyrinth of cobbled streets, narrow alleys and traditional half-timbered houses (perfect to snap some photos!). Home to museums, galleries, churches and a theatre, there is something for everyone to enjoy. See one of Europe’s largest sundials near the Stadttheater.
If you’re looking for your daily dose of nature, Aschaffenburg has a variety of parks and gardens. Look out for Schontal Park and Schönbusch Palace and Park - both perfect for a leisurely walk!
