Return Details

Returns to original departure point
As twilight falls across Cologne, make your way to the pier, just a short walk from the city’s old town and famous Gothic cathedral. Climb aboard the comfortable dinner cruiser and take your pick from indoor dining rooms or an outside deck, according to the weather. Order a beer or cocktail from the bar (own expense) and enjoy prime views of passing scenery as lights from Cologne’s riverside landmarks reflect off the Rhine.

Get a new perspective on the Cologne Cathedral—the most-visited landmark in Germany—as its twin spires are bathed in an emerald glow, and admire the Romanesque churches of St. Kunibert, Great St. Martin and St. Maria Lyskirchen contrasted with more modern structures of the unique cityscape. Learn about Cologne’s long history and contemporary culture as you glide along the famous Rhine waters.

Barbecue specialties and other options are available à la carte from the restaurant menu (not included) so you can enjoy a memorable meal on the river. Your cruise concludes back at the starting point.

Dark cruise with few sights
Connie_L
, Sep 2021
I was disappointed in this tour. We took it in early September and by the time the boat set sail, it was already getting dark. We made the mistake of sitting on the left side of the boat and could see nothing as that side of the river has nothing lit up. The food is mediocre at best. By the time the boat turned around, the only thing visible were the lights of the riverbank cafes and a few churches. If you are hoping to learn about Cologne, you will be disappointed as there is no greeting or info given during the cruise. This was one tour that I was hoping would end early. Don’t bother to show up early as they do not board until 15 minutes before the departure time and there is no orderly boarding practices. It was a free for all as passengers elbowed and shoved to board first, even if they had arrived well after everyone else.

A great way to see the city from the Rhine. I wouldn't bother sitting upstairs in the wind, rather downstairs where you get full service from the staff for food and drinks to order. A definite when you go to Cologne.

Panorama Abendfahrt

, Jul 2019
Die fahrt an sich war schön, aber einer der Älteren Service Mitarbeiter war Unaufmerksam und unhöflich. Nach einer halben Stunde konnten wir etwas zu Trinken bestellen. Als wir bezahlen wollten und meine Begleitung ausdrücklich erwähnte mit EC Karte zu zahlen, kam der Mitarbeiter ohne EC Gerät wieder und meckerte dann als wir nochmals sagten dass wir gerne mit EC bezahlen möchten..
