Excursion Cologne Highlights

  • Cologne

Take part in a spectacular Cologne Highlights trip with The River Cruise Line. Cologne is the largest city that nestles along the Rhine and the fourth largest city in Germany. Its roots go back some 2,000 years and it is home to a vast array of sights and attractions, all dominated by the towering cathedral which was among the most ambitious building projects undertaken in the middle ages. The old town is filled with quaint alleys which are lined with traditional old houses and adorned with monuments and fountains. Cologne is particularly beautiful in the run up to Christmas, when hundreds of stalls spread out across the city, offering a huge range of quality gifts and a wonderfully authentic atmosphere. Take a look at our German Christmas Markets cruise for a fantastic festive experience.
