Culinary Reading

When fiction meets the culinary art

When culinary delights are dished up from the onboard kitchen and one of the latest fiction highlights is unpacked on the stage, then you are on board the culinary reading cruise.

Immerse yourself in an evening packed full of entertainment and delicious dishes, while you glide past Cologne’s city skyline on our event boat. At each event, a different star guest will be presenting and reading from their latest book. KD will be serving up a three-course meal as the perfect accompaniment to this, including, if you wish, accompanying wine.

10 December Dietmar Bär

Dietmar Bär is coming back on board again this year to read from one of his favourite books. The bookworm, who is taking an evening off from his show “Tatort”, will be serving up charm, humour and, of course, an entertaining reading.

You can find more information about the reading here soon.
