Boat Trips in Cologne

Rheinpanorama ©KölnTourismus GmbH, Udo Haake

What would Cologne be without the Rhine? From time immemorial, the Rhine has been a significant traffic artery for transporting goods to the city as well as a popular route for river cruise tourism. In addition, it offers Cologne’s residents and visitors a pleasant opportunity to get to know the city from its most attractive perspective.


Various providers of boat tours make this possible. As a guest on shipboard, you’ll have the best panoramic view of Cologne’s most important tourist attractions, ranging from the picturesque historic city centre to the ultramodern Rheinauhafen with its crane houses. The individual shipping lines offer different routes and themes. In some cases you can enter the boat at a number of different landing points at times that fit conveniently into your schedule. On board you can find out interesting facts about Cologne’s history while you gently float along, enjoying a refreshing drink or taking a sunbath. For those who would like to go dancing on a boat on the Rhine, various event ships offer a range of options. You can find the details on the links to the various shipping lines.


Thanks to our flexible and practical round trip tickets, you can choose freely among the routes and shipping lines in the descriptions. Welcome on board!


Dates: Daily during the season (Easter until the end of October)
