Bring your appetite, and board your heated and covered boat at 10am to begin your festive Sunday cruise along the Rhine River. Christmas music will greet you as you inhale the delicious scents from the brunch buffet and enjoy your welcome drink of sparkling wine or orange juice.
Load up on a variety of hot and cold foods including eggs, cold cuts, salads, pasta, and fish. Sit back and relax as the city of Cologne glides by on either side. Behold stunning Cologne Cathedral, which has the largest facade of any church in the world. This stunning Gothic cathedral and UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of Germany’s most popular attractions.
Pass by colorful and vibrant Old Town (Altstadt) with its many restaurants and bars. And see Rheinauhafen, an urban redevelopment project that includes a marina and three architecturally distinctive buildings shaped like construction cranes.
Refill your plate as often as you like, but be sure to leave room for dessert. Throughout your cruise, sing along to your favorite Christmas carols. By the time your 2.5-hour cruise along the Rhine River returns to the beginning departure point, you’ll be ready to continue your day with independent sightseeing or Christmas shopping.
