Welcome aboard our Christmas cruise on the river Main. During the journey, we will be inviting you to discover and learn about one of Frankfurt’s most famous citizens: the poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. How did the great poet Goethe experience the city, the river and the season during Christmas time?

This journey is not meant to be a study trip, but as a short time of relaxation in a hectic, fast-moving age.
