Rhine Discovery Bonn 2024

Itinerary

We will set off on our exciting Rhine cruise from here, heading for the northern or the southern Rhine. But you shouldn’t miss out on the opportunity to explore this cathedral city, with its wealth of monuments and attractions. The best way is to arrive the day before your cruise departs, so that you can relax – or simply extend your stay in Cologne after the cruise has ended.

The town describes its biggest attraction, the world-famous Drosselgasse, as ‘144 metres of joie de vivre’. This centre of Rhine Romanticism once inspired poets and musicians – it was here that Brahms composed his Symphony No. 3. Rüdesheim is the best-known spot in the Rheingau and has plenty of cultural attractions, including stately homes and fortifications. And no visit to the towns and countryside of this area of the Rhine would be complete without a Rüdesheim coffee, which was invented here.

Cochem, on the bank of the Moselle, is another port of call on your Rhine cruise, which will take you onto the Moselle. The entire Moselle region around Cochem is a real sight to behold. The town’s landmark is undoubtedly the famous Reichsburg, a splendid castle that towers above the river. But did you know that the West German government had a secret bunker built here for its federal bank? Strange, but true! And you’ll have the opportunity to visit it during your river cruise.

Bonn used to be the capital of Germany – and there’s still a lot to see there nowadays. It’s Beethoven’s birthplace, a popular university city and home to the United Nations. Bonn has witnessed more than two thousand years of history, so there’ll be much to discover on this sightseeing tour. Afterwards, you can take a walk through the government district, where six federal ministries still have their headquarters. You’ll also see venerable buildings such as Villa Hammerschmidt and Palais Schaumburg here.

Nijmegen's liveliness extends to its city beaches, where you can immerse yourself in the beauty of its unique surroundings.

Helau! Carnival is at home in the German city of Düsseldorf. But this Rhine metropolis has a lot more to offer beyond that. The state capital of North Rhine-Westphalia enchants visitors with its long history, its diverse range of cultural attractions (including museums and theatres) and its offbeat architecture. And you’ll find Fortuna here too – in the form of a football club. Lucky you! Discover Düsseldorf during your Rhine cruise and you’ll have plenty of stories to tell when you get home.

Your exciting Rhine cruise ends in Cologne, but your wonderful memories will last forever. Before you start your journey home, use the day to take a further look around North Rhine-Westphalia or explore the city. The magnificent cathedral of Cologne is an absolute must-see. See you soon and Ahoy!
