About the E-bike tour
About Frankfurt’s history and how the two rivers, the Main and the Rhine, have shaped the people and the landscape. About art in the forest, riverside landscapes on the outskirts of the city and the contrast between industry and culture that we encounter along the way.
This leisurely riverside cycle tour takes you from the centre of Frankfurt along the Main. With a few surprising detours, you will discover tree personalities that were once the motif of painters, a natural landscape that has grown up as you only know it as a landscape on seas or lakes, historic gardens and a rare animal.
Frankfurt has been an important trade and fair centre since the Middle Ages. The city was never a residence, but a free imperial city and has always had a strong civic and patronage system. Our cycle tour starts in the middle of the city centre. From there we cycle along the water of the Main. Despite many meanders, the Main is the only one of the major German rivers to retain its flow direction from east to west. From the Middle Ages until the 19th century, the Main was a busy river for towboats, whose course we follow on our tour. A route that has a truly decelerating effect! Where once there was towed, now there is cycling!
On our theme tour you will learn the most important facts about Frankfurt’s history, the two rivers Main and Rhine and the scenic and cultural features to the right and left of our cycle path.
