Frankfurt Highlights 1-Hour Sightseeing Cruise


  • Photograph the city from an alternative vantage point

  • Enjoy commentary on Frankfurt's history and culture

  • Choose from several convenient departure times


Choose a convenient time for your one-hour cruise (five start times available), and head to the embarkation point in central Frankfurt. Board the luxury boat, and stroll the open-air deck or find a seat in the acclimatized indoor area — then relax as the boat sets off along the Main River. Enjoy interesting audio commentary about famous Frankfurt residents such as poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Anne Frank, as well as cultural snapshots of this city that is at once a vibrant artistic hub and Germany’s financial capital. As you listen, admire panoramic views of Frankfurt Cathedral, the ‘Little Manhattan’ financial district and Europaturm, scraping the sky at 1,107 feet (337 meters) tall! If whimsy strikes, treat yourself to a snack or drink from the onboard bar.  After one hour, your boat will return to the starting point, where you’ll disembark with plenty of time to see more of this great city!
