City Cruises

It’s like travelling through 1,000 years of history. Just as you are contemplating the heroic tales and atrocities documented by the castles and ruins of the enchanting Middle Rhine Valley, new towers – ones without parapets – spring up on the riverbank. The financial city of Frankfurt proudly flaunts its skyscraper skyline, the only one of its kind in Germany. A vibrant atmosphere welcomes visitors to this economic centre. Art-lovers could easily spend a week exploring the museums on the city’s south bank. Despite the hustle and bustle, the people here are extremely open. Visitors will notice that the “sch”-sound features heavily in their accent. The river carries travellers onwards towards the Main-Danube Canal and back into the more rustic beauty of wonderful, venerable old cities like Würzburg, Nuremberg and Regensburg. Austria and the Danube are drawing near. And you are pulled between an urge to keep travelling and a longing to linger on in the tranquil Engelhartszell.

The Second World War destroyed most of the inner city; these parts were rebuilt in a modern style. The landmark and emblem of the city is the Cathedral, a masterpiece of High Gothic architecture and one of the largest cathedrals in Europe. Other tourist attractions are the town hall, the Malakoff Tower, the St Martin Church and the old abbey.
