Cruise the Rhine in Cologne

Your Cologne exploration begins at the Hohenzollern pier, a stone's throw from Cologne Cathedral, a centuries-old structure that survived the Second World War. Board your comfortable sightseeing boat and soak in the intricate details of the cathedral's facade before setting sail. You'll get an up-close look at the Hohenzollern Bridge, a popular spot for lovebirds to seal their affection with padlocks. The colorful gabled houses lining Cologne's Old Town were built in the 14th century. Their colorful facades - think reds, yellows, and greens - were both decorative and practical, acting as giant medieval business cards.

See Cologne from the river

Catch a glimpse of the Tanzbrunnen open-air amphitheater, where lively concerts and festivals take center stage throughout the year. Keen to spot modern marvels? Look for the KölnTriangle, a towering skyscraper with a panoramic viewing platform. The cruise concludes at the starting point near the Cologne Cathedral, leaving you with a fresh perspective on this historic city.
