Neckar riverfront


Explanation:
San Antonio, TX has a very famous riverfront. Maybe you can use something similar here.
(Depends on your target audience, too, riverfront would certainly be understood in the US)

bank is actually not quite right, I'm afraid


Explanation:
The famous Neckarfront refers to the old-fashioned houses there, it's actually the view of these houses that you get while you're on the boat on the Neckar.

I may be wrong, but "bank of the river" to me sound a lot like landscape and meadows etc. This is not the Neckarfront!, that would be Neckarufer and is somewhere outside the town.
