Museum visit with fun guaranteed!

At the adventure playground at the Aschach Castle Museums, history comes to life through imaginative play

A playground tells a story

In the Lower Franconian district of Bad Kissingen, nestled in a beautiful natural landscape at the foot of the Rhön, lies Aschach Castle, a popular excursion destination and one of the most beautiful architectural monuments in the region. Three exciting museums - including a school museum with a historic classroom - as well as the beautiful surroundings provide recreation with entertainment value and education with a fun factor.

After a visit to the museum and the many exciting stories from the past, there's no stopping the youngest visitors: on the large meadow behind the castle wall, a fantastic eibe play world awaits with great play attractions that continue the historical theme of the castle in shape and color.

Plenty of space and great play equipment to play, move and let off steam to your heart's content - what could be better for a family outing or school trip! Covering around 1,600 square meters, the natural playground offers great fun for all ages: In addition to a large climbing facility in the style of a castle, there is a sand construction site, swings, spring rockers, a double cableway and a play station for the little ones.

This is the place to be!

The star among the play equipment on the museum playground is undoubtedly a lovingly designed play stagecoach that can be climbed on and whose shape is reminiscent of the real coach that still transports visitors from Bad Kissingen to Aschach Castle today.

Traveling in such a vehicle used to be quite arduous. Today's kids will also encounter many a challenge on the imposing climbing apparatus on the Aschach castle wall. In their imaginative role play, the children may encounter imponderables such as a broken wheel or a raid by robber gangs while climbing over the tricky balance ascent with skill and brains, climbing up the carriage trestle over the large wheel or casually hurtling down the slide. Traveling through the magical realm of fantasy is great fun.

Benches and a large seating area on the extensive grounds invite you to linger and have a picnic. The Aschach Castle adventure playground is not only open to museum visitors, but to all play enthusiasts at any time. A great excursion idea for children's groups and school classes!

"With the playground, we can further increase the quality of time spent on site and create all the conditions for an all-round successful day out for families and children's groups," says museum director Josefine Glöckner.
