Why Visit Main?

Intersecting the rural countryside of Bavaria, the Main river reveals a region of Germany full of wonder and a fascinating heritage.

Flowing in an easterly direction, the Main River merges with the Rhine River at Mainz. Although the river’s source is in the Upper Franconian region it is only considered navigable for river cruising between the cities of Bamberg and Mainz.

Generally speaking, the Main river is rarely cruised alone and is generally combined with itineraries along the Rhine, Danube and even the Moselle. Most cruises will begin in the cities of Amsterdam, Budapest, Vienna or Nuremberg making cruise itineraries including the Main River a perfect combination of some of Europe’s most popular cities and picturesque countryside.

Frankfurt is a major European financial hub and is home to the Central Bank of Europe. Although the city was heavily damaged during the second world war, much of this has now been rebuilt.  The central point of the reconstructed Old Town (Altstadt), Romerberg is the host of the yearly festive markets.

Bamberg is located at the confluence if the Main and Regnitz rivers in the northern region of Bavaria. The old town showcases buildings from the 11th to 19th centuries including the Town Hall and the Romanesque Cathedral.

Wurzberg is where you will find a great selection of wine bars, wine cellars and wineries, as is the focal point of Franconian wine country.

We are delighted to work with our specialist river cruise partners to offer a variety of itineraries featuring the Main River including Uniworld, AmaWaterways, Avalon Waterways, CroisiEurope and Viking.  Itineraries do vary in duration from 7 to 22 nights.
