Cologne to Königswinter: Siebengebirge Cruise

1. Cologne to Königswinter: Siebengebirge Cruise

Explore the spectacular Siebengebirge on a fascinating boat tour. Climb aboard in Cologne and cruise past Bonn and the legendary Drachenfels to Königswinter. Admire the stunning views of the countryside and the towns along the way. The Drachenfels is the most famous mountain in the region surrounding Cologne and Bonn. At the top of the summit is a ruined castle which, together with the Drachenfels plateau, is one of the most popular recreation areas in the Rhineland. Stroll along the waterfront or head up the mountain with the Drachenfels Railway to enjoy the breathtaking views over the Rhine Valley and the Rolandsbogen. You can choose between a one-way cruise from Cologne to Königswinter or a roundtrip cruise from Cologne to Königswinter and back. If you opt for the roundtrip cruise, you’ll have sufficient time to explore Königswinter on your own.

Bonn: 1.5-Hour River Cruise on the Rhine

2. Bonn: 1.5-Hour River Cruise on the Rhine

Marvel at some of Bonn’s most important — and beautiful – sights on the 1.5-hour cruise down the mighty Rhine River. Gaze upon the former West German capital’s governmental district, complete with the Hammerschmidt Villa, the former residence of the president of the Federal Republic of Germany.  Continue cruising down the Rhine and you’ll reach Königswinter, an idyllic wine village at the food of the mighty Drachenfels. From there, you’ll have a perfect view of the Drachenburg Castle — a 19th-century palace so directly pulled from a fairytale that it’s hard to believe that it’s real. On the way back, sample some German snacks and refreshments from the concession stand as you sail down the Rhine and return to the pier from which you departed.
