Skyline cruise was a good way to see the sights of Cologne. We were there on a rainy November day and appreciated the lack of a crowd on the boat.

So relaxing and beautiful. Great table service, so sit back with an adult beverage and watch the world go by.

Unwind and Explore: Cologne’s Skyline Cruise Adventure

Embark on a refreshingly languid 1.5-hour voyage on the Rhine River, offering splendid views of Cologne's historic and modern attractions. The cruise sets sail from the central Konrad-Adenauer-Ufer, within striking distance from the Cologne Central Station and the Musical Dome. Soak in the grandeur of the Cologne Cathedral and the quaint charm of the Old Town, a stark contrast to the avant-garde architecture of the Rheinauhafen harbor area, with the striking "crane houses". Did you know these crane houses represent a fusion of Cologne's industrial legacy and its progressive future?

The Intriguing Past of Cologne

Navigate smoothly under the architectural marvels of the five Rhine bridges, you will gain insights about their unique designs and history from a German and English-speaking guide. The journey becomes more captivating as we pass by the Poller Wiesen, a much-loved green space that doubles as a concert venue. Sights of the old Deutz exhibition halls, now home to the renowned RTL television station, and the lush Rhine Park provide a glimpse into Cologne's vibrant cultural scene.
