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.

Loved this trip even through we didn’t arrive in Konigswinter until 2pm. You don’t see any castles until you arrive at Konigswinter. Took the cog train up (follow the crowd off the boat!) to the ruins, had a quick tour of the castle (beautiful) grabbed an ice cream outside the the castle and walked back down into town. Took a quick look round the town and back onto the boat. We were back in Cologne just after 7pm, we had beautiful weather and enjoyed the day!

Great day trip to slow down. The catering on board is appropriate or as expected. The service is super friendly and always helpful. Combination ticket with the rack railway in Königwinter is recommended. In summary, a great activity that is particularly enjoyable in sunny weather.

I really enjoyed this cruise. The boats are amazing - much nicer than expected. The service onboard was great and the food fantastic. Konigswinter is lovely. I recommend getting the cable car up to the mountain.

It was really beautiful and more than affordable Also the stuff are really friendly and kind. It is amazing experience. I would definitely recommend.

The experience was really amazing. The route is so scenic & serene
