Carnival "om Rhing"

Carnival on the Rhine
"Kölle Alaaf"! During the so-called fifth season the whole city of Cologne goes wild, and KD is no exception. True to the slogan "revellers aboard" we party till we drop. 

Best location, best music, best mood. KD's carnival parties have gained cult status and carnival would be unthinkable without them. Within sight of the Cologne Old Town, top DJs and top live-acts get the audience in the right mood on KD's event ships. When the revellers in fancy dress take to the dance floor, the party atmosphere is guaranteed.
