The harbor tour itself was very nice, but we had to wait at 40 degrees outside until 2:00 p.m. in the sun before we were allowed on the ship, although someone was already on the ship and had seen that we were standing in the sun and then we were told that we still have to go to the ticket counter because we were not allowed to enter with the voucher on the cell phone or the printed one. And this information was not noted anywhere!
-very informative -Kölsch / German-language explanations :-) -the ship neatly clean -food, cakes, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages available on board (subject to a charge) -the digital voucher from GetYourGuide cannot be read with the devices on board, it is Better to go to the Bots pier, Pier No. 10 beforehand, there you get a chip and the inspectors on board know. All in all a successful action!
The most important thing is that you first take the voucher to the ticket office at the jetty and get a voucher, because the voucher is ... strangely .... not a direct ticket. This is really stupid, since it is not noted anywhere! I had to go back
Learn a lot of information about the ports of Cologne, but also a lot of information about Cologne in general.
