Dream Tour on Water and on Land
The countryside along the Main River is best enjoyed on a bicycle or from a boat.
The Main River Bike Path is 600 km long and follows the river from its sources all the way to its terminus at the Rhine River. The route is marked in both directions. There are bicycle friendly hotels and restaurants along the way, catering to the special needs of bicycle travelers.
Another way to experience the river is from a boat. In a cruise ship, you glide past the beautiful countryside along the river and enjoy a unique view of the historical sites. Cruise ships can be boarded in Frankfurt, Aschaffenburg, Veitshöchheim, Würzburg, Volkach, Schweinfurt and Bamberg, among other places.
