Town Residence Schönborner Hof

Since 1676 town residence Schönborner Hof was the residence of the rich family of Schönborn. In 1832 the town bought it for its needs. The facility accommodated in turn an appeal court, an institute for noble maidens, a bank, a hospital… Until his death in 1951, the famous Aschaffenburg eccentric – hatter Johann Julius Weidenbörner who was famous for his unusual memory – lived in the chapel. The saying goes that he could define a person’s head size by simply looking at him, remembered sizes of all his customers, and during drinking bouts entertained his companions by reciting large pieces from works of literature and operas.

To honour such a picturesque character, a memorial plate was mounted on the house in 1997. Today there are several museums functioning under the roof of Schönborner Hof. One of them is the Aschaffenburg Museum of Natural History. It exhibits samples of local flora and fauna as well as a number of exotic animals and plants. The collection of butterflies is especially good.
