We were able to buy a last minute ticket for 100 minutes on the river. 50 minutes to the right and 50 minutes to the left. It was a little bit difficult to follow the guide voice due to mix of left and right, but...More

Don't be fooled - Frankfurt city centre is generally incredible, but 5/10 mins up the river there's absolutely nothing. Two large docks means that the trip isn't actually that good. The boat is lovely and its nice to relax with a beer on the boat...More

Just a short walk down Roemerberg will take you to the boarding place, and from thereon it's 100 minutes of relaxed viewing of the city from the Main River. Refreshments are available in plenty, and the entire experience is quite chilled and nice.More

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
