Main River Cruises

This beautiful countryside along the Main River was once ruled by powerful kings, emperors, princes and bishops. Medieval fortresses, magnificent castles, enormous cathedrals, and historical towns bear witness to the glorious past and are highlights of German cultural heritage.

The Main River (an offshoot of the Rhine) winds its way through the Fichtelgebirge Mountains in the East to its confluence with the Rhine River in the West. It is surrounded by fairy tale forests, beautiful low mountain ranges, and the luscious vineyards of Franconia.

River cruise ports along the Main include Frankfurt, home of the Palmengarten Garden, and Wurzburg, the location of the Mainfranken Museum. Red rock cliffs, tree-covered hillsides, quaint villages and vineyards grace the shores along the river, which winds through central Germany.
