Schloss Johannisburg mit Schlossanlagen, Aschaffenburg

4.4
#1 of 12 in Things to do in Aschaffenburg
Constructed in the early 1600s overlooking the river Main, Schloss Johannisburg mit Schlossanlagen 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.

  • The castle was very nice. Directly in the City Centre ´ Centre and not far from our hotel. The courtyard can be always committed.

  • Nice place to spend the day. Either taking photos or walking in the garden/park
  • Beautiful part of Aschaffenburg history, the architecture is amazing & well restored. the Sunday markets out front, and surrounding parks and gardens are a must see..
  • Nice castle and garden, can be recommended for a whole day programme.
  • Like many other of German castles, it has been taking good care and remaining good condition. I found vegetarian garden on the extent side walk to garden. Even though the garden is boring but I could have a view over Main river.
  • nice place for walking and taking pictures.
