Main River

Lying entirely in Germany itself, the Main River is the longest tributary of the Rhine River. From Frankfurt to Bamberg, architecture, culture, history, and vineyards lie along this major German waterway. There is no shortage of castles along the banks and small towns that beg to be explored and admired. The Main is an adventure in itself that is ripe for the picking!
