The History of Aschaffenburg

back to overview

Aschaffenburg’s location is a delight: above the Main river at the foot of the Spessart hills. It has long been known and admired for its mild climate. That’s why, since the second half of the 19th century, the town has been known as “The Nice of Bavaria”. The area that is present-day Aschaffenburg was partially settled in prehistoric times. The actual development of the town began about 1000 years ago. From the 10th century, Aschaffenburg belonged to the Prince Archbishopric of Mainz – and did so for over 800 years, until 1803. After the end of the Holy Roman Empire and secularisation, the remains of the Archbishopric became the Principality of Aschaffenburg.  And just eleven years later, the town was absorbed into the Kingdom of Bavaria.
