Eichenbühl is located in the northwestern corner of Bayern. The town is penetrated by the Erf River, which floats into the Main just a few kilometres further downstream. The Erf River and this part of the Main are considered the border between the Odenwald Mountains in the south and the Spessart Mountains in the north. The mountains here are between 450 and 600 metres high. They are characterized by rounded peaks covered in forests.
Eichenbühl lies in the Bayerischer Untermain region. The main city of this region is Aschaffenburg, some 45 kilometres further north. The major landmark of this city is an enormous renaissance castle build on a ledge overlooking the Main. Schloss Johannisburg was build in red sandstone which lets it stand out from the surrounding area. Sadly the castle suffered a lot of damage at the end of the Second World War. The original interiors are mostly destroyed. The castle is now used to house a couple of museums. Among other things it has a large collection of renaissance paintings and also houses the world largest collection of architectural models made of cork. In Aschaffenburg another public monument overlooks the Main. It looks very much like a villa you would find in Pompeii. Except it was build in 1840 and still looks brand new.
Seventy kilometres to the west of Eichenbühl floats the Rhine river where the richest cities of Germany are, like Frankfurt, Darmstadt, Mannheim and Heidelberg. But because you have to cross the Odenwald mountains to reach them, they are perhaps not an ideal place to visit from Eichenbühl. Perhaps Würzburg is a better city to focus on. Some 70 kilometres to the east of Eichenbühl the city is dominated by the gigantic Residenzschloss. The lavish decorations can easily measure up to Versailles or Schönbrunn, except it only receives one tenth of the visitors.
