Full description
The return of Christmas river cruises, aboard the MV RheinFantasie and MV RhineEnergie is a yearly treat for the city of Cologne.

As you'd expect for the time of year, a festive, romantic atmosphere holds sway on deck. Enjoy the panorama of Cologne on board the brand-new and festively decorated flagship, the MV RheinFantasie. The magical play of lights over the old town, in the lead-up to Christmas, cannot fail to amaze you.

Enjoy Christmas treats and sweet delicacies with your coffee, listen to the live music: the Christmas spirit is well and truly on board with us this season!

On afternoon trips from the first day of Advent (Wednesday to Sunday), Father Christmas himself will be dropping in, with presents for the little ones.

Whether you're getting ready to wander round the Christmas market, or in the mood to relax after all the fuss, the lights and crowds – it doesn't matter: it's always the right time to jump aboard a KD riverboat, for a couple of pleasant hours on the Rhine! An experience for the whole family.

The afternoon cruise lasts 2 hours and features musical entertainment and waffles, with cream, cherries and a pot of coffee.
