Many place in Germany are under recognized as they have so much competition in regards to historical significance and attractive Altstadts. Aschaffenburg is one such place.
We spent out first night there a week ago, after flying into Frankfurt am Main airport. We found a good hotel, the Hotel Cafe Fischer, and a decent meal at Uwe's Bistro. The Altstadt is scenic to walk. I wish that I could say that we visited one of its acclaimed museums but after a long flight, we just wanted to stretch our legs.
There was also plenty of shopping in Aschaffenburg if you want to carry less over and buy a few necessities there.
