this is a great way to spend a couple of hours in cologne while visiting the xmas markets, the boat is very easy to find, the staff on board are very friendly and helpful, ite cruise is well organised with a seating plan so you know where to sit, the two waffles and drink was very nice. there is some great photo opportunities of cologne while cruising down the rhine
the entertainment is also good with two singers live on stage singing xmas carols, santa also makes a appearance and invites all the children on stage to receive a small present .
this is the second time i have done this cruise in the past two years !!!
if you are in cologne during the festive season i would recommend this cruise whatever your age, and also those with young children

Excellent Rhine Xmas Cruise. Santa was brilliant. He spent 10 minutes talking to my wife and I (in English), and we didn't even have any children with us. Thoroughly recommend this trip, and it is cheaper booking through Viatpr than booking at the Cruise terminal in Cologne.

A nice two hour cruise along Rhine river with lots of Advent time delights. Maybe it is not the best time to enjoy surrounding views (as it comes dark early in December), however it still worth visiting to feel that wonderful inimitable atmosphere of the coming holiday!

A very enjoyable cruise, we were greeted by the crew and shown to excellent window seats with a table reserved just for us. Drinks (ie coffee, hot chocolate or tea) arrived together with delicious hot cherry waffles and cream, St.Nickalaus came on-board and the children sang German Xmas songs to music.

Nice way to spend a couple of hours seeing the City from a different view. The boat is fantastic and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Food and drink is not expensive and a good variety available. Overall a great afternoon and would recommend it.
