With piers for river cruise ships in Aschaffenburg, Bamberg, Roth, Regensburg and Passau, we offer you five locations in Bavaria from a single source. This gives you a decisive advantage: whether you want to call in at one or a number of ports, make a short stop to let passengers board and disembark or intend to lay anchor for longer, bayernhafen is your first port of call. While your guests enjoy their time on shore, we and our partners replenish your freshwater tanks or ensure the proper disposal of your refuse and waste water:
bayernhafen continually invests in infrastructure and utility services for river cruise ships. It is currently developing additional berths and power supply points, and is planning over the longer term to build cruise terminals and winter berths at a number of its locations.
The river cruise sector also benefits the cities
Research into the effect of tourism on regional economies shows that the river cruise sector also benefits the cities the cruise ships call in at. While they are on land, passengers spend money on goods and services such as souvenirs, cafés and restaurants, as well as on clothes. In addition, they spend on daytrip packages and bus transfers. They also deliver great promotional value for the cities they visit. Despite this, our partners and providers operating in the river cruise sector often face issues regarding acceptance of tourism.
bayernhafen actively strives to balance the interests of the tourist groups and river cruise providers, on the one hand, and the city’s inhabitants on the other, and regularly launches initiatives to promote mutual dialogue between both sides. At the end of 2016, bayernhafen in Bamberg joined forces with the City of Bamberg and the shipping company, Avalon Waterways, to organise the ‘Cruise Ship Open Days’ – the first event of its kind in Europe that has since gone on to inspire imitators in several cities on the Danube.
