Schaafheim is located in the Darmstadt-Dieburg district about 12 km northeast of Dieburg and 15 km west of Aschaffenburg. South of Schaafheim, on a knoll, stands the 22 m high watchtower, which the Archbishop of Mainz Berthold von Henneberg had built in 1492. In 1992 the tower was completely restored.
The “Free State of Bavaria” is renowned for being culturally unique and for the emphasis which it places on preserving its heritage and traditions. It is also extraordinarily beautiful, boasting a plethora of castles, palaces, cathedrals, abbeys and monasteries not to mention spectacular scenery. Bavaria is more than Alps, men in “lederhosen” (leather pants), women in “dirndl” (traditional dresses) and frothy glasses of beer by the “maβ” (liter).
