Full description

Go on a private tour of Johannisburg Castle, which overlooks the Main River in Aschaffenburg. Follow your guide through the four-winged complex and learn all about the history of one of the most important Renaissance buildings in Germany. Relax knowing hotel pickup and drop-off is included.

Begin your tour by getting picked up from your accommodation in Frankfurt and enjoy a comfortable ride to Johannisburg Castle. Once you arrive, take a look at this early 17th century castle from the outside and listen as your guide explains all about the architecture of the building.

Enter the castle and visit a branch of the National Gallery. See paintings by Lucas the Elder, as well as the world’s largest collection of architectural models made from cork. Pieces include the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the imperial triumphal arches, the Porta Maggiore and the Pyramid of Cestius.

Marvel at the castle chapel with its Renaissance altarpiece, pulpit and portal sculptures by Hans Juncker. Watch the sculptures be brought to life with a light-sound installation. See the Staircase Hall, Tower room, and Ridinger Hall. Once you have finished the tour, get driven back to Frankfurt.
