Rhine River Cruises

Cologne looks lovely from the water, and the best way to appreciate the views is on an afternoon or evening dinner cruise. An evening cruise is particularly pretty at Christmastime, with a traditional festive feast and fairytale views of castles and churches lit up for the season.

For a longer sail, pick up a KD Rhine Pass for Rhine River cruises from Cologne to Mainz, and spend as much time on the water as you like. The beauty of a river pass is that you can hop on and off wherever you like en route to explore the lovely towns along the riverbank.

Sailing south from Cologne, the main towns you’ll pass are the home of Beethoven in Bonn, the tiny medieval town of Bacharach, Koblenz with its two castles, the spa town of Wiesbaden and the Rhineland-Palatinate capital Mainz.
 
In the lovely riverside city of Bonn, take a look at Beethoven’s ear trumpet in the house he was born in back in 1770. Bonn also boasts a historic old town of Gothic and Baroque buildings and an interesting swag of museums.
