Ex­cur­sion Ideas for River Cruises

Dock and go on ad­ven­tures

If you take a river cruise along the Rhine in North Rhine-Westphalia, you will be able to set out for new adventures from various piers. Bonn, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Duisburg, and Xanten offer excursion destinations in their closer proximity. No more than an hour’s drive from the respective harbour, or less than that in the Ruhr Area, you will find impressive palaces and castles, exciting museums, or amusement parks.
