Main River

The Main River is a connector of sorts, bridging the gap between the Rhine and the Danube. This means that many cruises that sail in the center of Europe will include stops along the Main River. You can awaken your mind and soul with a voyage down the Rhine and Main rivers, where you will be delighted by the European treasures of Cologne, Dusseldorf and Prague. The rich history of the German people and the culture that you can relish firsthand is an experience you won't soon forget. Featured below are just a few of the memorable experiences to be had on a Main River cruise:

Nuremberg Castle, Germany
  • Nuremberg, which is now restored to its pre-World War II glory, offers sightseers plenty of medieval churches, forts and castles, the most prominent of which is the Imperial Castle of Nuremberg (Kaiserburg).
     
  • See what life is like in a small German town when you enjoy a walking tour of Wertheim. Visit the Wertheim Castle, a must-see landmark, and enjoy a day of shopping and people watching in this picturesque German town.
     
Old Opera in Frankfurt, Germany
  • Frankfurt features a poignant juxtaposition of historic and modern. Nestled beneath the watch of the city’s skyscrapers are beautiful old buildings like the Frankfurt Cathedral and St. Paul’s Church. Admire the city from a beer garden.
     
  • The Bavarian village of Miltenberg features many gorgeous Renaissance-era structures, including fountains, half-timbered homes, a cobble-stoned market square and the Merchant Hall.
     
Bamberg Cathedral, Germany
  • Bamberg is a German city with a truly medieval feel. Tour Bamberg Cathedral, which was founded in 1004, and the Altenburg, which was once the home to Bamberg's bishops in the 12th century, but is now a restaurant. Here you can taste the city’s famous smoked beer, where the malted barley is dried over an open flame.
     
  • Wurzburg, sometimes referred to as the “Pearl of the Romantic Road,” sits amongst the vineyard-covered hills of Northern Bavaria. Highlights include the Marienberg Fortress, the Old Main Bridge (Alte Mainbrucke) and Wurzburg Residence – a palace featuring the world’s largest ceiling fresco.
