Main River

Germany's peaceful Main River winds through the heart of the country, passing forests and vineyards as well as cosmopolitan cities and medieval towns. The river is a tributary of the Rhine and also connects with the Danube via the Main-Danube Canal. Many Main itineraries also sail the Rhine and Danube, some traveling from the North Sea all the way to the Black Sea.

Guests might visit the "The Pearl of the Romantic Road," Wurzburg, and its Residenz, an immaculate Baroque palace, or enjoy local Franconian wines. Then, walk among the 14th- and 15th-century half-timbered houses of Miltenberg, relax in the Mediterranean gardens of Aschaffenburg and visit the fishermen's village known as "Little Venice" in Bamberg.

In November and December, the towns along the Main celebrate the holiday season with festive Christmas markets. Visitors can shop for souvenirs or presents and taste holiday favorites like mulled wine and local specialties such as Rothenberg's Schneeball.

Our cruises are hassle-free because all the day-to-day details are handled for you by experienced cruise directors. And in each stop along the way, expert guides show you the top attractions and share their intimate knowledge of the locale. These trips are also easy to budget, as so much is included in the upfront price.
