Arrival at Frankfurt/ Main airport, S-Bahn journey into the city (about 20min), overnight.
This hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour takes you along the sights of Frankfurt, including the former coronation site of the German Emperors and the modern European banking center.
See the historic old town with the famous town hall "Römer", the cathedral, the Paulskirche and the Goethehaus. Hardly any city in Germany is characterized by such contrasts as Frankfurt: The towers of the former city wall and the banking district with its mighty skyscrapers - including the highest in Europe - are probably the most striking example. Also, see the European Central Bank, the old main police station and the famous shopping street "Zeil". Other highlights of the city tour are the Museumsufer, one of the most important locations for museums throughout Germany and Europe, as well as the Alte Oper, in which many world-famous plays have already been premiered.
Sightseeing boat trip: 2 hours. The 100-minute boat ride starts at the "Eiserner Steg". The boats leave every hour.
The tour starts downhill towards Griesheim and takes you through urban areas of Frankfurt and towards the western harbor. Here you can see the wonderful view of the skyscrapers of Frankfurt's financial center or the museums along the banks, such as the Städel. The boat will turn back in front of the lock of Griesheim.
Then you can do a tour up the stream. This will take you along beautiful banks of the River Main towards the city's eastern harbor. Just to name a few attractions: You can see the district of Sachsenhausen, with its typical bars and the new building of the European Central Bank. You have the opportunity to get off at the "Gerbermühle", the historical landmark dedicated to the Frankfurt writer Goethe.
Morning tour to the romantic Heidelberg on the Neckar, one of the most beautiful old cities in Germany. Simply magical.
You will visit the world-famous palace of the Elector Palatine: an interplay of architectural styles from the Gothic to the Renaissance. Walk across the sprawling castle courtyard and admire the view from the mighty terrace. Let yourself be impressed by one of the largest wine barrels in the world. Then you walk through the medieval center. You see the Old Bridge, with the mice and the monkey, the Karlstor and the Heiliggeistkirche.
Admire the House of the Knight with its magnificent Renaissance façade and be inspired by the narrow old streets with half-timbered houses. Heidelberg houses the oldest university in Germany and is full of interesting stories. And if you have some spare time, philosophize on the Philophenweg or convince yourself of the quality of the regional wine.
