Cologne Tour Ideas
8 hours 30 minutes
Enjoy a scenic Rhine River cruise from Cologne to the resort city of Königswinter, at the foot of the beautiful Siebengebirge hills. After a journey down the water that takes in sights of romantic riverside villages and hilltop castles, choose to visit one of two Königswinter attractions. Either visit the family-friendly Sea Life aquarium or ride one of Germany's oldest cogwheel railways up to the famous Drachenfels cliff, topped by fascinating ancient ruins of Drachenfels Castle.
Enjoy a one-hour panoramic Rhine River sightseeing cruise and soak in the spirit of Cologne. The Rhine River provides access to many of the city’s major attractions, such as Cologne Cathedral, and during your cruise, you'll see top sights and learn about Cologne's 2,000-year history from the onboard audio commentary. While you take in the beautiful city sights, enjoy a freshly tapped glass of Koelsch, a famous local beer available for purchase. If one hour simply isn't enough, upgrade to the two-hour nighttime cruise!
