The Jewish community in Aschaffenburg used to be one of the largest Jewish communities in Bavaria. The Museum of Jewish History and Culture spells out the story from the first Jewish school in 1267 to the persecution during the Nazi regime. The museum is located in the former rabbinate that still stands right next to the former location of the synagogue that was built here from 1891 to 1893 and destroyed in the Reichskristallnacht. Today, there is a sycamore grove at its location.
