Some Greatest Rivers in Germany

Moselle River

The Moselle River flows through France, Luxembourg and Germany before joining the mighty Rhine River.

The surrounding area around the Moselle River is famous for producing wine and approximately 60 per cent of vineyards in the Mosel area grow Riesling.

Main River

The Main River is approximately 327 miles long and it flows beside many of Germany’s major towns and cities such as Frankfurt, Mainz, Wurzburg and Obernburg.

Frankfurt being located beside the Main River means that it is often a popular stop-off destination for river cruises and people visiting the city on river cruises will be able to get a glimpse of two of the tallest skyscrapers in the European Union.

Neckar River

The Neckar River is another popular route for river cruise tours as it is a right-bank tributary of the Rhine River in south western Germany.

The 228-mile long river flows through Stuttgart and through many other picturesque towns and villages as well as flowing through stunning valleys and forests.

Danube River

The Danube River begins in western Germany and passes through an amazing nine countries: Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania and Ukraine.

The Danube is steeped in history and played a pivotal role in the political evolution of central and south Eastern Europe.
