Main River Discovery Frankfurt - Nuremberg 0

Highlights of the Main Discovery Cruise

On this cruise, moments become lifelong memories!

From Frankfurt to Aschaffenburg, Wertheim, Würzburg, Schweinfurt and Bamberg to Nuremberg.

Start in Frankfurt, finish in Nuremberg. Along the River Main, you will experience a journey back in time to the Middle Ages. In Aschaffenburg, you can visit the impressive Johannisburg Castle. Continue to charming Wertheim - a small medieval town. Würzburg is famous for its baroque and rococo style buildings, especially the 18th century Würzburg Residence, with its magnificent rooms, a large fresco by the Venetian artist Tiepolo and a richly decorated staircase. With its numerous wine taverns, wine cellars and wineries as well as the characteristic Bocksbeutel, Würzburg is the heart of the Franconian wine region. And then comes B for Bamberg (or B for beer) - famous for its well-preserved medieval townscape and breweries. Finally, the cruise ends in Nuremberg, where you will discover the historic old town with the Imperial Castle and the Albrecht Dürer House.

Frankfurt

Frankfurt

Here I am human, here I am entitled to be. This quote from Frankfurt's most famous son - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe - actually comes from his "Faust", but it also applies wonderfully to his home city. You will find modern financial buildings stretching high into the sky as well as an old town with historic buildings and half-timbered houses. And if you simply want to unwind on this river cruise, take a long walk along the beautiful banks of the Main.

Ausflug nach Würzburg mit A-ROSA

Würzburg

The wine in Würzburg really is excellent. Situated in a basin, Würzburg could be described as the young old city. Its 1,400 years of history can be seen in the cityscape. The Würzburg Residence, for example, is one of the most important buildings of the late Baroque period, and the Hall of Mirrors is considered to be the most perfect rococo work of spatial art. The city is also youthful because of the many students who have brought cafés, bars, modern culture and concerts with them. And the "party cellars" - a special feature of Würzburg's nightlife.

Aschaffenburg

Aschaffenburg

Aschaffenburg shines with its fascinating blend of history, culture and scenic beauty. Immerse yourself in the majestic world of Johannisburg Palace, one of the most important Renaissance buildings in Germany, and explore its magnificent rooms and gardens. Stroll through the picturesque old town with its charming half-timbered houses and historic squares before making your way to the Pompejanum, a replica of a Roman villa that offers a fascinating insight into ancient life.

Our cruise starts in the vibrant city of Frankfurt am Main. In addition to its imposing skyscrapers, the Finance, Business and Euro metropolis also has picturesque alleyways with a special historical atmosphere.

Frankfurt

Aschaffenburg offers its visitors a wide range of experiences and sights. From historic buildings to idyllic nature parks, there is something for everyone to discover here. An absolute highlight is Johannisburg Castle - an imposing Renaissance palace. From its towers, you enjoy a breathtaking view over the old town and the River Main.

Aschaffenburg

With its well-preserved city wall, narrow alleyways, richly decorated half-timbered houses and picturesque market square, Wertheim is quaint and relatively authentic. The ruined castle, perched on a hill, is one of the largest of its kind in Germany. In his 1862 account of the Main region, Karl Baedeker describes Wertheim as the high point of the entire trip. You can put this claim to the test yourself during your Rhine cruise.

Wertheim

Today your romantic river cruise will stop off in Würzburg. This old seat of bishops straddles the River Main. As a university city, Würzburg has an excellent reputation. A centre of Franconian winemaking, it is also the economic hub of Lower Franconia. The city is dominated by its medieval fortress, the Marienberg. A varied visit awaits you here!

Würzburg

In the 19th century, this one-time free imperial city became a major industrial location on the River Main. Nowadays, it is clear that Schweinfurt also has a well-developed cultural side, with its collection of museums and galleries. It is also well known among scientists as the home of the world-famous Leopoldina, Germany’s National Academy of Sciences, which counts several Nobel laureates among its members.

Bamberg’s unmistakeable cityscape is an architectural masterpiece that took 1,000 years to create. Overlooked by its unique cathedral, Bamberg is a work of art in and of itself, with a wealth of listed buildings that bring together the Gothic and bourgeois baroque styles. This old Franconian seat of bishops and emperors dazzles visitors with its splendid cathedral, its churches and monasteries, its bridges, alleyways and squares, and its half-timbered houses and baroque facades.

Bamberg

There’s so much to say about Nuremberg – and this city in Franconia has so many attributes. It’s the city of Wagner’s Master-Singers, Dürer, the Christkindlmarket, gingerbread and bratwurst. This means that you can choose what you’d like to focus on. Interested in food and drink, or culture? Or both? You’re bound to find what you’re looking for here. On this cruise along the Rhine and Main, a stroll through Nuremberg will definitely be worth it.
