The castle mainly hosts an excellent series of exhibitions rather than being a representation of castle life. Some rooms in the castle seem a little sterile and modern. The castle is large so there is a lot of walking. Very good but not quite what we expected.

I was on a trip in ashaffenburg and I visited the castle and it had a pub there also. They sell good wines there! The beer is good and cold. It's a great spot to spend some time walking trough and around the castle. It's i great shape but I didn't find my way inside to the castle.?!

The Schloss Johannisburg mit Schlossanlagen in Aschaffenburg, Bavaria, Germany is great church castle in a small town. As I was station here during the cold war years is was nice to come back for a short stay.

Its was simply a bit shocking to see this beautiful church/castle. It has a nice view around and a rive (dirty though) runs close to it. A nice park to walk around and have a good evening in Aschaffenburg.

This castle is a treasure. Because it was a church castle it is a little different from the more frequently found barony castles. It is huge and spectacular in scope and contains some excellent art work. We enjoyed the views from outside and walking and eating in the area.

What can be better but to look around a castle that holds brilliant paintings then to eat in a restraunt serving wonderful German cuisine. Breathtaking views and a walk along the river Main. So lucky to have been here and experience the best of Germany. This is what memories are made of. Admission fee to see the paintings...... Well worth... More

This is one of those town that have it all. The castle is nice and all, but the view from there is even more impressive with the river and vineyards in one side. There are a lot of small shops, trails for bicycles, landscapes for photo lovers. etc. I highly recommend it :) http://youtu.be/ylyu9qVg94U

Schloss (Castle) Johannesburg in Aschaffenburg really is a sight to behold. I am lucky enough to have family who live here but I have found that many travel brochures for rivercruising in Europe will use the castle on their covers. In terms of things to do there...well not much, but the cobblestoned streets in the old part of town and... More

I visited this beautiful castle grounds on a sort of last-minute decision having already passed by the city of Aschaffenburg on the A3 motorway a couple of times. It's colourful history (was rebuilt from ruins twice) made a deep impression on me. At the time of my visit it was hosting besides its pernament exhibition an exhibition on cork models... More
