Boat tours

Travelling along the impressive skyline on an excursion boat or going on a boat cruise to interesting towns and cities on the Main and the Rhine – Frankfurt offers numerous options for little ‘cruises’ and big tours. Only a few steps away from the Römer, directly on the Main quay at the Eiserner Steg, there is the main landing stage and the ticket kiosk of the Primus Line. You can set off on various excursions from this and other landing stages on the bank. During a tour, the boat heads for either the Offenbach or the Griesheim locks, offering a splendid view of the Frankfurt silhouette. On day trips, the boat goes up the Main to Seligenstadt and Aschaffenburg or down the Main to its mouth and then on the Rhine to cities and towns such as Mainz, Eltville and Rüdesheim. The RMW combined ticket, that permits a return journey using any RMW means of transport, is particularly attractive.

A pavilion of the Köln-Düsseldorfer Rheinschifffahrt (KD) directly on the Eiserner Steg provides information about other trips on the Rhine and Moselle. The tours do not start until Mainz or Wiesbaden but holders of the Frankfurt Card receive a reduction when they purchase a ticket ‘on board’.
