The Main River is an important commercial waterway, as well as a favorite for recreational boating. A river excursion on a tourist boat is a favorite activity in the Franconian Wine Country.
Main River excursions depart several times a day, plus there are the ever popular brunch and theme tours. Boat trips start at the Würzburg Mainlände and take guests to Veitshöchheim and the beautiful Rococo Gardens. Other tours travel the Volkach Mainschleife, past vineyards, wine towns, and the Maria im Weingarten Chapel.
Ferries are the best way to get from one side of the Main River to the other. Main River ferries have a long history and today, they offer a great opportunity to cyclists wishing to get from one side of the river to the other.
