If you only have 1 day in Frankfurt, Germany and you want to see as much as possible, then consider booking the Frankfurt Super Saver: City Highlights Tour plus Full-Day Rhine Valley Trip and Cruise.  Not only will you be able to see the top attractions in Frankfurt, but you’ll be able to save money as well; you’ll be booking two tours together and saving 15% compared to booking the tours separately!

Your day will begin with a double decker bus sightseeing tour of Frankfurt, where you’ll learn a lot from your audio guide.  You’ll be able to admire the city’s mix of modern & Baroque architecutre, and see the sights of Frankfurt that make it such a great city, such as:

  • European Central Bank (Eurotower)
  • The Stock Exchange
  • the Old Opera House
  • Goethe House
  • Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe’s former house
  • St Paul’s Church
  • Frankfurt Cathedral (Gotischer Kirchturm)
  • Hauptwache

Next you’ll travel to the lovely German countryside, where you’ll get to experience the UNESCO World Heritage-listed part of the Rhine Valley (from Rudesheim to Sankt Goarshausen).  Your air-conditioned coach will take you past beautiful vineyards, romantic villages and medieval castles.

You’ll have lunch at a riverside restaurant (which is included in this tour) and then head to Sankt Goarshausen, where you’ll take a relaxing Rhine River cruise on a steamer boat, passing the iconic Loreley Rock.  After your cruise, you’ll go to a wine shop for a wine-tasting session, and you’ll get to learn about local winemaking & sample local wines.  After that, you’ll get time to explore the town’s shops & wine bars at your own leisure.

You’ll then head back to Frankfurt, and on the way you’ll stop at Rudesheim to see Drosselgasse, cobblestone street from the 15th-century in Old Town that is brimming with wine taverns, music venues, gardens and great restaurants.  Then you’ll get back to Frankfurt.

This is a great option if your travel plans only give you a day in Frankfurt or you have a long stopover in Frankfurt during an international flight.  Just remember to book through Viator to get this great deal!
