Take a Cruise

Take a Cruise, Cologne

Planning to go on a cruise? See our information below!


When visiting Cologne, there is no better way to admire the city than from the water. Right across Cologne is the Rhine River, at several places in the city you can board a boat to take a beautiful cruise on the water. During a 1.5-hour boat trip, you will sail through the historic city centre and see Cologne’s best sights from a distance.

In winter, Cologne is beautifully illuminated and you will see Cologne at its most beautiful during this Rhine cruise. On board, live music is often played and you can enjoy a hot mulled wine, or cold beer, while Cologne passes you by.

Opening hours:

There are several companies around the Rhine offering cruises and they all have different opening hours. Note, however, that a cruise lasts 1.5 hours on average.
