Frankfurt 50-Minute Sightseeing Cruise

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    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.

    The 50 minute boat trip does not give you interesting places to see. On a clear sunny day it is nice though to sit on deck with a drink. Service on board is good.More

    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

    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

    Trips are round-trips so no no worries about buying return tickets.

    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.
