The city of Aschaffenburg has a lot to offer in terms of cultural highlights: Schloss Johannisburg Castle and the Pompejanum, for instance. It is an important city for art in the region. A major addition to the museum district in Aschaffenburg will be a brand new museum showing the works of the famous German artist Christian Schad, opening at the end of this year. Schad was an important proponent of Verism, a period at the beginning of the 20th century. Anther exhibition highlight in Aschaffenburg is the “Divine X Design. Das Kleid der Antike” exhibition, held at the Pompejanum, a replica of a Roman villa. This exhibition illustrates the dialog between ancient works of art and fashion of the same period. The fashion designs were created by fashion undergraduates to demonstrate the power of fashion even back in the day: Already then, people chose suitable clothing for the various occasions, with hair, make-up, and accessories being an important part of the look. The exhibition will be open until October 31, 2018. The entrance fee to the Pompejanum is €5.50 (€4.50 for visitors under 18) or, combined with entrance to Schloss Johannisburg, €7.00 (€5.00 for visitors under 18).
