What You Can Expect

Cologne Combo: Sightseeing Cruise and Meal at Hard Rock Cafe Cologne

Enjoy classic American-style food in central Cologne!

Your combination ticket can be used at Hard Rock Cafe Cologne at any time during the restaurant’s opening hours on the day of your cruise. Select your preferred cruise start time, and then eat at a time to suit your schedule.

Cologne Sightseeing Cruise:
Hop aboard your Cologne sightseeing boat at the Rhine embankment, and then cruise along the beautiful city stretch of the Rhine River. Visit the onboard bar for a freshly tapped glass of Kölsch, Cologne’s famous beer, and relax on the spacious sun deck or inside the boat.

Your 1-hour Rhine River cruise passes several top Cologne attractions, so look out for Cologne Cathedral, Lindt Chocolate Museum and Hohenzollern Bridge, where couples traditionally leave padlocks as a token of their love. Learn about the city from your audio commentary while gliding through charming areas like Cologne’s picturesque Old Town.

After an hour of sightseeing along the city stretch of the Rhine River, return to the start point where your cruise finishes.

Hard Rock Cafe Cologne:
Visit the lively cafe at a time to suit you, and walk straight past the entrance lines with your skip-the-line ticket. Admire the cafe’s collection of rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia, seeing items including sunglasses worn by Elvis Presley, a fender guitar played by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Jimi Hendrix's vest and more! Cologne’s famous beers are also a draw, so sit back and order a crisp glass of Kölsch, if you wish.

Then, sit back, relax and enjoy your 2-course meal in the heart of Cologne. The cafe also has an onsite shop, which you can explore after your meal.

Very good

Bleesed with a fine weather, my 10:30 cruise has turned very enjoyable and rewarding.
I had more than enoug time to climb the tower of Cologn Cathedral before the cruise started.
And I leisurely walked along the Rhein to have a wonderful lunch at noon.

Good trip - value for money especially with the Hard Rock Cafe meal included in the cost. Actual boat trip was well organised, boat was clean, tour covered all the parts you`d like to see and had German and English commentary. Good experience all round; you`re going to want to do a boat trip on the Rhine to see Cologne properly so make it this one.

4 star rating: Recommended July 2015

Good value meal. River trip a bit restrictive for view.

The boat was big and had some playground toys, which was great as we had our 2 year old with us on the tour. You couldn't really hear the guide on the top deck, which was unfortunate. The staff at Hard Rock was great and very accommodating. They seated us rather quickly considering the restaurant was packed.

The River cruise was very enjoyable and money well spent. The meal at the Hard Rock Café? Not so much. One of the draws, for me, of this was the skip the line aspect. Well, when we got to the restaurant after the river cruise there were a grant total of three other people in the restaurant, a woman with an infant and a man by himself. So, there was no line to skip. -

Hard Rock is EXCELLENT !!!!!!!!
The Food is Very Good.
BUT the BOAT is very BAD, is Short and only speak english and Deutsch.
Hard Rock es EXCELENTE :)))))
Muy buena la comida y abundante. PERO el paseo en el bote fue muy malo, desorganizado, corto y el audio es solo en ingles y alemán.

Cruise was informative and got to see the famous Rhine. The ticket office was very confusing regarding the departure times for this tour in comparison to our voucher. The meal at Hard Rock was disappointing. We felt like second class citizens as they dumped us in a corner and once we had our food came nowhere near us again. Went elsewhere for later drinks.

ok, but nothing special

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2015

énorme bateau, peu convivial , commentaires en anglais et allemand. Peu de choses vues franchement trés décevant. Heureusement le repas au rock café était trés sympa et a rattrapé la chose
