Travel by river cruise ship has grown in popularity and is now an important pillar of bayernhafen’s product portfolio. With docking facilities for passenger ships in Aschaffenburg, Bamberg, Roth, Regensburg and Passau, bayernhafen offers the river cruise sector five locations in Bavaria from a single source.
bayernhafen’s locations are the starting point for tens of thousands of tourists from all over the world every year. While they enjoy their time on shore and explore the region, the ships can, for example, replenish their fresh water tanks or dispose of their waste. River cruises also benefit the cities they visit, as research studies on the regional value creation of tourism confirm. While they are on shore, the passengers spend money on items such as souvenirs, restaurants and clothes, along with expenditure on excursion packages and bus transfers. In addition, the advertising effect for the cities the cruise ships visit is enormous.
At the beginning of 2019, bayernhafen Aschaffenburg took over the operating role for the river cruise ship pier in the Floßhafen in Aschaffenburg. The Floßhafen in the centre of the city is the ideal port of call for river cruise ships. From here, it is only a short walk to Aschaffenburg’s main attractions such as Johannisburg Castle, Pompejanum, and the picturesque medieval old town.
