Christmas flair in front of the castle.

The Johannisburg Castle towers above the town of Aschaffenburg and its Christmas market that takes place on the castle square.

Festive lights lead the way to a Franconian nativity scene that includes life-sized wooden figures, Christmas pyramids that are one meter tall, and a three-meter tall nutcracker. Stroll through the market and enjoy stands with Christmas decorations, mangers, hand blown glass, and so much more. To top things off, there are other advent offerings such as organ concerts.

A relaxed search for the ideal Christmas gifts allows a weekend in one of the centrally located hotels: After shopping in the Christmas decorated shopping streets and Northern Bavaria's largest inner-city shopping center, you can indulge in the culinary delights of the numerous restaurants and then immerse yourself in Aschaffenburg's cultural life.
