Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 170 reviews on the web
Constructed in the early 1600s overlooking the river Main, Schloss Johannisburg is made of the red sandstone typical to this area and is one of the best examples of Renaissance architecture in Germany. Heavily shelled during World War II, the castle was subsequently restored and opened to the public in 1964. Take the self-guided tour to see photos of the damage, learn about the castle's history, and visit the various collections housed within. Take a look at the unusual collection of cork models of ancient Roman buildings, including the Coliseum and the gallery of paintings by Bavarian artists, or enjoy a glass of wine by a palace window. The surrounding gardens also provide a nice place to relax after your visit. Our Aschaffenburg trip itinerary maker makes visiting Schloss Johannisburg and other Aschaffenburg attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This is the major site in Aschaffenburg. It is everything you would want to see. Old pictures, buildings, items of interest and more. I strongly recommend that you go here. 
  • Great place to stroll and enjoy gardens and buildings. The inside is filled with art and history exhibits. Shops and street cafes very close make it a great place to spend the day. 
  • viewed from a distance during an evening walk from our short stay. This beautiful band made us do some time stand still. Beautiful building in the evening and nicely lit. We will definitely come back for a time to get up close to admire. impressive!!
