DAY 3: MAY 6, 2023

Wake up feeling rested and enjoy a hearty German breakfast before seizing the day ahead. We start our day by looking at Frankfurt from a new perspective – on the River Main! Walk down to the waterfront to head off on a river cruise and relax while gazing at the skyline as you sail past.

Frankfurt is home to some of Germany’s most interesting museums and today we will be visiting one of the more notable museums in Frankfurt, the Städel Museum. Established as a civic foundation in 1815 by the banker and businessman Johann Friedrich Städel, the Städel Museum ranks as Germany’s oldest museum foundation and offers over 700 years of European art from the early fourteenth century to the present. Walk to the Städel Museum after your river cruise concludes to take in some of the world’s most infamous pieces of art.
