Get to know beautiful Franconia with an Aschaffenburg holiday apartment
Aschaffenburg is a picture-perfect town in the north of Bavaria, an unexpectedly great destination for lovers – or, indeed, families, friends, or solo travellers, of all ages. If you rent a holiday apartment Aschaffenburg, you'll fall in love with the "Bavarian Nice" just as King Ludwig I did in the early 19th century – he took the Schloss Johannisburg, one of Germany's most important Renaissance buildings, as his summer residence, and commissioned the Pompeii-style villa Pompejanum. The magnificent Schloss, with its fairytale exterior and grand interior, is perched on the bank of the River Main, and has beautiful gardens leading to Pompejanum, which has elaborate murals in full colour lining the walls and mosaics on the floor.
Aschaffenburg is an all-year destination – head down during one of the town's festivals, such as Stadtfest, Carillonfest, or the eleven day long highlight of the festival calendar, the Volksfest, and enjoy the freedom that a centrally located holiday rental Aschaffenburg affords you. In the summer you can enjoy a beer in the Biergarten of the English-style gardens of Schönbusch, go cycling through the Franconian countryside and take a picnic to the Fasanerie landscape gardens, and in winter you can enjoy Glühwein and Franconian food in the company of a life sized nativity scene and a three metre tall nutcracker at the Christmas Market in Schlossplatz. Make the most of your Aschaffenburg holiday rental and visit this cultural hotspot's many galleries, museums and theatres.
