The Neckar River Cruise - where it takes place and when to go

The Neckar is a tributary of the Rhine. It rises in the Schwenninger Moos Nature Park in Baden-Württemberg and discharges into the Rhine 367 kilometres further on at Mannheim. The best time for a Neckar river cruise is in the months of May to September.

Neckar The River Cruises - cities and tourist attractions

The picturesque university city of Tübingen is on the agenda of the Neckar River Cruise. Outstanding features of the city are the quaint narrow lanes, impressive half-timbered houses and buildings such as the Stiftskirche, built in 1470. You can snatch some moments for relaxation in the old botanical garden.

The regional capital of Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart, is a pulsating metropolis with the world's largest triple-function theatre, the Stuttgart State Theatre. The Mercedes-Benz Museum is worthy of mention, as are the many castles.

If your Neckar River Cruise should happen to take you to the former Imperial City of Heilbronn, you will have the opportunity to discover famous buildings such as the imposing church of St Kilian or the medieval Deutschordensmünster. It is also worth visiting the South German Railway Museum.

The fancy Palatinate royal city of Heidelbergis one of the most beautiful cities on the Neckar. Heidelberg Castle and the Baroque old town with its 1.6 km long pedestrian zone have a flair all of their own. The Carl-Theodor-Brücke also counts as one of Germany's oldest bridges.
