As a major tributary of the Rhine in Germany, the Main River takes you past the towns of Mainz, Frankfurt, and Würzburg. Along the way you will have opportunities to experience German culture with village tours, biking and hiking excursions, and wine tastings of the savory varieties from the local vineyards. Of course, you'll also have many opportunities to enjoy the pretzels and beer that have made Germany famous as well. See the Gothic cathedrals and impressive spires that highlight the authentically German architecture of the Basilicas and castles. You will enjoy all of these activities from aboard a luxurious river vessel that combines comfort and service in an all-inclusive experience.
