Full description

Join us on the most informative and personal tour of the gorgeous Johannisburg Castle, overlooking the Main River in Aschaffenburg. For your comfort, you will be picked up from your accommodation and enjoy a comfortable ride with your Private Guide on board. Discover the “Bavarian Nice”.

During the 4-hours trip you will visit one of the most important buildings of the Renaissance period in Germany. The early 17th century castle is constructed out of red sandstone and is mostly symmetrical with a tower located in each of its four corners. Instead of wall fortifications, there are pleasant palace gardens with vineyards, fruit and vegetable gardens. Throughout the tour, you will discover the castle’s history as a residence of the archbishop-electors of Mainz.

There are many treasures awaiting you inside. You will visit a branch of the National Gallery (Staatsgalerie Aschaffenburg) with paintings by Lucas the Elder, and see the world’s largest collection of architectural models made from cork, with pieces such as the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the imperial triumphal arches, the Porta Maggiore and the Cestius pyramid.

Another point of interest is the palace chapel with an impressive Renaissance altarpiece, pulpit and portal sculptures by Hans Juncker. With the help of modern technology, the sculptures and relief figures are brought to life with a light-sound installation. You will also see the Staircase Hall, Tower room, and Ridinger Hall. After an entertaining tour, your Private Guide will drive you back to your accommodation in Frankfurt.
