Romance on the Main from Regensburg

Itinerary

Routenkarte Main Romantik ab Regensburg

You’ll spend your day in Regensburg admiring the churches, towers and patrician houses from the 13th and 14th centuries – in a form not otherwise found north of the Alps – that characterise this one-time free imperial city. Regensburg’s old town is very important thanks to its status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy views of the city from your vantage point on the Danube. You’ll be able to see the magnificent cathedral from afar.

Willkomen auf dem Rhein Richtung Main! Ganz entspannt geht es heute bei Ihrer Rhein-Main-Kreuzfahrt in das "Best of" aller Zeiten. Von Bord aus können Sie die Kirchen, Geschlechtertürme und Patrizierhäuser aus dem 13. und 14. Jh. in Regensburg bestaunen. Ihr nächster Stop ist Nürnberg. Jetzt heisst es aber erstmal den Rhein und das Bordleben genießen.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Welcome to Goethe’s birthplace! Here’s another historical fact while we’re at it: this is where the first German national assembly met in 1848. Today, the metropolis on the Main is home to the headquarters of major banks and is also one of Germany’s most important centres of business and commerce. Frankfurt is also known for its many futuristic-looking high-rises. You’ll get a closer view of them when your Rhine cruise takes you along the Main river.

In Köln geht Ihre aufregende Rhein-Kreuzfahrt zu Ende. Bevor Sie jedoch mit tausend Erinnerungen an Ihre Reise die Heimreise antreten, nutzen Sie doch noch den Tag, um sich in Nordrhein-Westfalen weiter umzusehen oder die Domstadt zu erkunden. Einmal in Kölle, sollte man auch den Dom besucht haben. Bis bald und Ahoi!
