City Breaks along the Main with A-ROSA

In 2014, the New York Times published a list of the 52 places in the world most worth visiting. Frankfurt, the only German city to make the list, was at number 12.

Anyone wishing to find out whether this city on the Main has more to offer than just an eye-catching skyline will discover a diverse, multicultural city with amazing museums and outstanding orchestras. Frankfurt is always a great destination for a city break: new bars and cafes keep springing up, adding to the city’s appeal. Then there’s the Main, the beautiful Odenwald forest and the Taunus mountains. With all this, you could be forgiven for almost forgetting that Frankfurt is also one of German’s most important economic hubs.

Travel to Frankfurt on an A-ROSA River Cruise

Step aboard one of the A-ROSA cruise ships and discover Frankfurt from the river.

During your cruise on the Main, the A-ROSA AQUA, the A-ROSA BRAVA and the A-ROSA SILVA will dock right in the centre of Frankfurt. Explore the city by yourself, or join one of our guided excursions with a guide who knows their way around. While you are still chatting to your fellow guests, the ship will depart and head for the next city – perhaps Würzburg or Nuremberg.

The Römer

The Römer has been Frankfurt's town hall since 1405. This building has therefore been the seat of government for over 600 years. It is not only one of the oldest town halls in Germany, but also one of the most beautiful. This makes the Römer one of the most important landmarks of the metropolis on the Main.
