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.

Cologne: Drachenburg Castle Half-Day Guided Tour

3. Cologne: Drachenburg Castle Half-Day Guided Tour

Discover the magical Drachenburg Castle, a 19th-century palace built on the Drachenfels mountain with breathtaking views of the Rhein valley. You'll be picked up at your accommodation in Cologne by a private car and enjoy a comfortable 40-minute journey to the charming Königswinter village. You'll first head up the mountain toward the medieval Burg Drachenfels, onboard the historical Drachenfelsbahn, which is the oldest cog railway in Germany. It'll feel like you're being pulled up the hill on a roller coaster, but without the scary drop at the end. At the top, you can explore the ruins and marvel at the incredible views of the valley below, and a perfect spot for a panoramic photo. On a sunny day, you may even spot Cologne Cathedral on the horizon. Once you finish, you'll make your way down the path towards Castle Drachenburg. Here, your guide will provide you with all the fascinating stories about the castle-like villa built in the late 1800s, with its short but turbulent history. Perfectly renovated to reflect its original splendor, it's well worth exploring. And don't forget to roam the beautiful gardens. The Drachenfelsbahn will take you back to the village. If you're keen to continue exploring, you can opt for the 6-hour option, which will include a 2-hour sightseeing tour with your guide around the beautiful village of Linz am Rhein, known as the “colorful city”. Here, you can stroll through the historic cobblestoned streets and admire 16th-century picturesque half-timbered houses. Your guide will also lead you to the Old Market Square, St Martin Church, Linz Castle and part of the medieval city fortification, Pulverturm. Once you've enjoyed all the attractions you will be taken back to your accommodation in Cologne.
