The Johannisburg Palace (1605-1614) is one of the most significant palaces from the German Renaissance and it was the second residence for archbishops and Electors of Mainz until 1803.

In spite of severe damages during the Second World War the Johannisburg Palace didn´t lose its imposingness. The Palace is home to an unusual attraction: the world´s largest collection of architectural models made of cork. The painstakingly accurate replicas were created by court confectioner Carl May and his son Georg from 1792 and depict famous Roman ruins. The State Gallery which displays early German and Dutch paintings with a special emphasis on works by Lucas Cranach the Elder and also the electoral rooms are important attractions for visitors from near and far. The Palace Museum displays artworks and historical references from six centuries. The focus lies on the history of the city, handcraft, paintings and sculptures. Special exhibitions of artists of Aschaffenburg take place regularly at the Palace.

General tours, tours for children and tours while wearing historic costumes. Elevator accessible.
