Tour description provided by Viator

Relax on a 3-hour Rhine River dinner cruise, enjoying panoramic views of Cologne as you dine on a buffet of regional specialties, including drinks. While floating down the river – Germany's second largest – you'll experience Cologne from a unique vantage point. Unwind as you take in the atmosphere, enhanced by the DJ’s mellow music selection and the city landmarks lit up in the late evening sky!

During your 3-hour dinner cruise aboard a comfortable boat, enjoy taking in Cologne’s beautiful sights along the Rhine River at night.

See top attractions such as Cologne’s historic old town, the University of Cologne and the Chocolate Museum. Admire famous city landmarks lit up against the spectacular evening sky, such as the Hohenzollern Bridge (Hohenzollernbrücke) – where couples traditionally attach padlocks called ‘love locks’ as a declaration – and the Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom) with its silver and blue-lit spires.

Choose from regional German dishes at the onboard buffet, and relax as you dine and listen to the DJ’s music selection that will be sure to put you at ease. Enjoy complimentary drinks from the bar, including fresh Koelsch, the famous local beer. After returning to shore, you’re free to stay on board the boat for an additional half hour to finish your drink or just relax!
