Overview
Sit back and relax on this sightseeing cruise in Frankfurt where you choose your own journey. Pick between traveling upstream or downstream on the Main River. No matter what you pick, you’re sure to see impressive views of the city. Sit outside on top of your boat or head inside to sightsee from the comfort of a window seat.    
What to Expect
Meet at Eiserner Steg (Mainkai) in central Frankfurt a little before the time you picked for your departure. Make sure to get the seat that will suit you best on the voyage—you can pick to sit up top outdoors or indoors where it's warmer by a window.
Depending on what route you choose, your trip could be going upstream to Gerbermühle (Offenbach) or downstream to Frankfurt-Griesheim. If you chose to go upstream, some of the spots to see are the Frankfurt Cathedral, Dreikönigskirche, Sachsenhausen, Literaturhaus, Main Plaza, European Central Bank, and Gerbermühle. If you chose to go downstream, keep an eye out for Frankfurter Römer, Paulskirche, Commerzbank, Städel Museum, Westhafen Tower, and Griesheim.
Much of Frankfurt was rebuilt after WWII, and you can take in many of the city’s well-known sights as your cruise along the Main River. When your ride is over, return to your original departure point to get on with your day.

If you feel nothing else to do then come on-board. Nothing special about it. Just like a normal ride across the city, takes you around old buildings near by the sea and expensive beverages inside the Cruise. Tip: Visit the Upper deck and enjoy the...More

good boat ride to get an idea of Frankfurt

This is a very resonably priced activity to do in Frankfurt. Keep in mind that Frankfurt is a very new city so there are no major sights to see along the Main. there is a narration that points out a few sights. We were there...More

Excellent value

We took the 50 minute cruise up and down the river main. We sat on the upper deck (open air). The beer was great and the view was awesome. However, the audio commentary wasn't nice. The beer prices were reasonable. Overall, this was a great...More

We were only in Frankfurt for a short time and decided to do the river cruise. The commentary was great and to see the mix of new and old buildings along the riverbank was great. You can buy food and drink on the boat as...More

We went downstream and were not particularly impressed with the sites. Our only choice at the time was 50 minutes downstream or the whole tour for 120 minutes.
