As twilight falls across Cologne, make your way to the pier, just a short walk from the city’s old town and famous Gothic cathedral. Climb aboard the comfortable dinner cruiser and take your pick from indoor dining rooms or an outside deck, according to the weather. Order a beer or cocktail from the bar (own expense) and enjoy prime views of passing scenery as lights from Cologne’s riverside landmarks reflect off the Rhine. Get a new perspective on the Cologne Cathedral—the most-visited landmark in Germany—as its twin spires are bathed in an emerald glow, and admire the Romanesque churches of St. Kunibert, Great St. Martin and St. Maria Lyskirchen contrasted with more modern structures of the unique cityscape. Learn about Cologne’s long history and contemporary culture as you glide along the famous Rhine waters. Barbecue specialties and other options are available à la carte from the restaurant menu (not included) so you can enjoy a memorable meal on the river. Your cruise concludes back at the starting point.
