Situated on the banks of the Rhine River, bustling Cologne is home to beautiful Gothic and Baroque landmarks. While seeing them on foot is lovely, a cruise offers a complementary perspective. Here are your options for cruising the Rhine in Cologne.

Highlights
  • For a long sail, pick up a KD Rhine pass from Cologne to Mainz, and hop on and off wherever you like to explore the lovely towns along the riverbank.
  • Stop off at Bonn to take a look at Beethoven’s ear trumpet in the house where he was born in 1770.
  • An evening river cruise is particularly pretty at Christmastime, with a traditional festive feast and fairytale views of castles and churches lit up for the season.

Sightseeing Cruises
Experience the sights and sounds of the Rhine valley on a Rhine River cruise that can last anywhere from an hour to a full day. From the decks of a tour boat, take in the scenic panorama of the castles, churches, and vineyards along the shores of the Rhine.

Dining Cruises
Cruise along Cologne’s scenic urban waterfront as you enjoy a meal, passing the city’s historic old town, the University of Cologne, and the Chocolate Museum. Relax and admire glowing views of the city skyline including Hohenzollern Bridge (Hohenzollernbrücke) and Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom). Different boat trips offer different packages, with dinner cruises being especially popular.
