Not only the university has a great deal to offer, but also the town of Aschaffenburg. It is located in the Bavarian Lower Main region and is characterised by a mixture of culture, nature and a general atmosphere of liveliness. Markets and festivals, museums and the town theatre enrich cultural life in Aschaffenburg. Cinemas, libraries and exhibitions also contribute their share. Johannisburg Castle, the Pompejanum and the Pheasantry are especially worth seeing. These sites also attract international tourists to Aschaffenburg.
Green spaces, forests and parks invite you to relax and do sports. Schöntal valley, Schönbusch and the Main promenade are within easy reach. Everyone who is inclined to sports is drawn to the nearby Spessart mountains or the Odenwald forest for hiking, winter sports, mountain biking and climbing.
Music fans get their money's worth in clubs and at festivals. Party people and night owls can be found in cafés and bars. If you want a little more variety, you can explore Frankfurt, Wiesbaden, Mainz, Darmstadt and Würzburg. This can be done very easily thanks to the excellent transport connections.
