The lively metropolis of Frankfurt makes a convenient base for exploring Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, the Romantic Road, and the Rhine River Valley, some of Germany’s most popular spots. Here are some of the top day trip destinations from Frankfurt.

Rhine River Valley
One of the most popular day tours from Frankfurt is to the idyllic Rhine River Valley, and the most atmospheric way to explore the region is by boat. Take a boat cruise from Frankfurt to Mainz, then continue through the UNESCO-listed section between Mainz and Koblenz—one of the most scenic boat rides in Europe, dotted with impressive hilltop fortresses, medieval villages, and natural landmarks.

Heidelberg
A half-day or full-day tour to nearby Heidelberg is at the top of many traveler’s itineraries, reached by a drive along the dramatic Bergstrasse, or Mountain Road. Stop off at one of the many wineries and castles before you reach the main attraction—the romantic Heidelberg Castle (Schloss Heidelberg), once the principal residence of the Kurpfalz Princes and now renowned as one of Germany’s most beautiful castles.

Trier
Go back in time with a visit to Germany’s oldest city, Trier, dating back to 2000 BC. Under two hours from Frankfurt, Trier’s main sights are the remnants of the Roman colony established in the city in 16 BC, including Germany’s oldest cathedral, built by Constantine the Great in AD 326. A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, the ancient city is set on the banks of the Moselle River and features one of the earliest Gothic buildings in Germany, the Liebfrauenkirche, Roman Baths, and a 20,000-capacity Roman Amphitheater.

Romantic Road
Lying close to the start of Germany’s iconic Romantic Road, Frankfurt makes a perfect launch pad for exploring Bavaria's most scenic tourist route and there’s plenty to explore even if you’ve only got one day. Starting out at nearby Wurzburg, the road takes in attractions like the medieval town of Rothenburg, the walled city of Augsburg, the Tauber Valley vineyards and, further south, the fairytale Neuschwanstein Castle.

Black Forest
Those looking to escape the city will find plenty to do in Bavaria’s majestic Black Forest with ample opportunities for hiking, cycling and horseback riding. Don’t miss a visit to the picturesque spa town of Baden Baden en route.

The name of my boutique-style chauffeur and limousine service is "a friend in heidelberg". Many guests of mine told me that this very name is the perfect choice. The stops mentioned under "Itinerary" are possible destinations of our tour. I am more than happy to compose an individual tour, which is based entirely on your preferences and wishes. I was not only born in the famous historical city of Heidelberg and know the area extremely well, but also lived and worked in the US and hence speak fluent English. If you wish I can help you with the organization of your trip ahead of time. You will be chauffeured in a Mercedes S-Class, virtually a private jet for the road, equipped with all state-of-the-art features.

Thanks to the Internet genealogical research has become way easier. Nowadays you have an unparalleled opportunity to trace your roots to a certain town and to explore where your ancestors originated. You might even get lucky and meet some distant relatives. If your ancestors are from Germany, I am here to help you explore the places and points of interest related to your ancestors. Actually, a lot of Germans who emigrated came from the region I serve as a driver guide or better your "concierge on wheels". I am located in the renowned historic city of Heidelberg and my primarily geographical area of operations stretches from Frankfurt in the north, Stuttgart and Strasbourg in the south, Saarbrucken and Kaiserslautern, known as "K-town" by US army personnel, in the west and Würzburg and Rothenburg ob der Tauber in the east. The name of my boutique-style chauffeur and limousine service is "a friend in heidelberg". Many guests of mine told me that this very name is the perfect choice. I was not only born in the famous historical city of Heidelberg and know the area extremely well, but also lived and worked in the US and hence speak fluent English. If you wish I can help you with the organization of your trip ahead of time. In contrast to the famous movie "Back to the Future", I cannot serve with a DeLorean with a built-in time machine, but offer a fully equipped first-class Mercedes S-Class limousine for travels back to one’s past.

Romantic Road Day Trip from Frankfurt (Main) to Würzburg (SATURDAY)

The warm evening light illuminates the roofs, turrets and domes; the Prince-Bishop’s Residence glows with a deep yellow; the gentle hills of the Franconian wine region are a lush green.

Those who leave the old town and climb up to the Marienberg Fortress are rewarded at the end of their walk: with a view that spectacularly highlights Würzburg’s unique position, the vibrancy of the city, and its cultural richness.

He stands at the window and gazes into the extensive castle garden where, every year, "Spring lets her blue ribbon flutter in the breeze again". The life size bust of poet Eduard Mörike and the Cabinet that bears his name are only two of the numerous highlights in the impressive Museum of the Teutonic Order (Deutschordensmuseum). After the visit, we ask ourselves: shall we carry on walking in a north-westerly direction through the spa gardens and then relax in the Solymar Thermal Spa, with its view of the roofs of the town? Or go back to the market square and enjoy a cup of coffee in the shadows of the half-timbered houses? It’s so lovely to be spoilt for choice …
