A Rhine cruise, particularly upstream, is nothing for speed freaks, but rather for connoisseurs. Indeed it takes a respectable three hours to get by ship from Düsseldorf to Zons. But this unhurried journey is a perfect part of this wonderful day out. During the cruise you can relax and take in the scenery gliding slowly by, while enjoying the delicious lunch which is included in the price of the ticket. When you arrive in Zons you have plenty of time to explore the medieval gem of the Lower Rhine before you reboard the ship for the journey back to the state capital.
