I didn't go on the tour due to time, but walking along the river was nice.
A great river cruise and such a reasonable price.You can also buy drinks and fantastic ice creams on board.Would do this again on my next
Excellent tour experience. Huge cruise ship with ample space to relax on the deck or air conditioned restaurant. Restaurant has finest choice of desert, drinks etc. Total worth for money.
A wonderful way to see Cologne in a short amount of time! My wife and I arrived in Cologne on Saturday afternoon and departed on Sunday afternoon. We purchased this cruise for 10am Sunday morning and the timing was perfect! Very easy to find. They offer numerous foods and drinks for purchase on board. We both highly recommend ordering the waffles with hot cherries and cream! The perfect breakfast with wonderful views! A very nice cruise, first south then north of the Dom (Cathedral). If you are going to be in Cologne long enough to afford the time for a one hour cruise, you will not regret this!
The cruise was only about an hour long. It's a nice break from walking around and they do advise in both German and English along the way. There isn't as much to see as further south along the Mosel.
They served food and wine as well. Service was really nice.
We loved the cruise. On the negative side, we were not exactly sure where the cruise departed but were at the river promenade early enough to locate it. Our voucher had to be exchanged for tickets at the ticket office prior to boarding. Also it was difficult to hear the narration during the cruise. We had our own map of Cologne with us which was helpful. On the plus side, the river is lovely, and the cruise gave us a better idea of distances between landmarks. For the cost, the cruise is well-worth the time.
Good value for the relatively low price. The hour is the right amount of time for this city. The tour swings to the south from the middle point of the city, backtracks to mid-city and then swings north making another half-loop by the time it returns allowing you to see all 7 of the bridges and a lot of architecture of the city you normally wouldn't see separate from this tour. The location of the departure point is very accessible to the main attractions like the Cathedral.
Only spent a short time in Cologne and it was perfect to get an overview of the city in the time we had. The boat was very comfortable with a large deck on the roof to allow us to take plenty of photos with uninterupted views.
