Bike Touring Highlight
Half-timbered houses and the Gothic fountain adorn the Stiftsplatz in the old town of Aschaffenburg. The named after the saints Peter and Alexander pin dates back to the middle of the 10th century, the construction of the collegiate church began in 975. After the death of Duke Otto of Swabia in 982 fell Aschaffenburg - and thus the pin - to the Electorate of Mainz under the rule of the local archbishop Willigis. In the following two centuries Aschaffenburg rose to the second seat of the Mainz archbishops and the later administrative capital.
