Enjoy a one-hour panoramic Rhine River sightseeing cruise and soak in the spirit of Cologne. The Rhine River provides access to many of the city’s major attractions, such as Cologne Cathedral, and during your cruise, you'll see top sights and learn about Cologne's 2,000-year history from the onboard audio commentary. While you take in the beautiful city sights, enjoy a freshly tapped glass of Koelsch, a famous local beer available for purchase. If one hour simply isn't enough, upgrade to the two-hour nighttime cruise!

While cruising down the Rhine River -- Germany's second-largest -- pass some of Cologne’s top attractions, like Cologne Cathedral and the Hohenzollern Bridge (Hohenzollernbrücke), where couples traditionally leave padlocks as a token of their love to one another. See other favorite sights such as Cologne's historic old town and the Cologne Chocolate Museum.

Your comfortable sightseeing boat features a spacious sun deck and bar with beverages available for purchase. Admire the city skyline of Cologne while enjoying a freshly tapped glass of Koelsch, the famous local beer (own expense).
