The river is a tributary of the Rhine and also connects with the Danube via the Main-Danube Canal. Many Main itineraries also sail the Rhine and Danube, some traveling from the North Sea all the way to the Black Sea.
In November and December, the towns along the Main celebrate the holiday season with festive Christmas markets. Visitors can shop for souvenirs or presents and taste holiday favorites like mulled wine and local specialties such as Rothenberg's Schneeball.
