Siebengebirge tour

One of the most popular excursion destinations from Cologne is the Siebengebirge mountain range. We take you right to the heart of this unique idyllic landscape featuring castles and ruins spread around the seven mountains.

You can enjoy a comfortable journey on board our ships, past Bonn and Drachenfels mountain, with its wealth of legends, to Königswinter. Take advantage, for instance, of our attractively priced combined ticket and travel by rack-and-pinion railway to the newly designed Drachenfels plateau with its historical old building and modern glass cube. But it is also rewarding to explore more of the region by ship. Not without reason is the picturesque spa town of Bad Honnef also referred to as “Nice on the Rhine”. Charming little Rhineland towns such as Unkel and Linz are also worthy of a visit, and the two spas of Breisig and Bad Hönningen should not be missed.
