Aschaffenburg is also known as the “Nice of Bavaria” – partly because of its mild climate. With this moniker, it’s perhaps no surprise that above the town, on a hill surrounded by vineyards and embedded in an idyllic park landscape, is a building that draws on this Mediterranean landscape: the Pompeiianum.
