What You Can Expect

Cologne Rhine River Christmas Afternoon Cruise

Cologne Christmas Market

Enjoy the wintry panorama of Cologne's Old Town on board the new comfortable saloon vessel MS RheinEnergie or MS RheinFantasie. The elegant interior design and superior furnishings add to the warm atmosphere on board this exclusive ship. Even Santa Claus makes an appearance (Friday, Saturday and Sunday cruises only) to add to the festive ambiance on board.

Romanticism is the key in advent, and what better way to indulge in it than with the same atmosphere onboard. Experience the most beautiful stretches of the Rhine with its stunning landscape and fairytale castles and capture the true essence of Christmas in style.

brilliant...............asked for great 4 seats @ front of boat

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.
