Enjoy a cruise after work

The new KD evening excursions
Cologne will gain a new location for relaxed meetings with friends and colleagues after a day’s work has been done: Altstadtufer is the name, and it refers to the KD landing stage in the old town .From April, one of the KD ships will set sail from here every Monday to Thursday for an evening outing with a club-like atmosphere.

Sitting in a beach chair with friends gathered round, a skilfully mixed cocktail or freshly tapped Sion kölsch in hand, a balmy breeze ruffling your hair and being entertained by lounge music as you sail into the sunset. When you picture such a scene, who would not immediately say: “I want to be there!” It sounds like a perfect pick-me-up, relaxation, holiday. Precisely! And that is why from April KD will make the most of the holiday potential it can offer and turn each of its evening outings into a kind of mini cruise in the heart of the city.

Get together after work

The excursion will start at 8 pm every Monday to Thursday right next to the Pegel (the waterlevel indicator) in Cologne’s old town. Deckchairs and beach chairs will await passengers on the sun deck and convey a simple message:“Relax!” And that, in a nutshell, is the programme for the evening cruises: meeting friends, enjoying a drink together, chatting, chilling – and all that in front of a backdrop which no other after-work location, however popular, can offer: a view of the cathedral, theold town, Rheinau Harbour, crane buildings, Poller Wiesen meadows and romantic churches.

Culinary highlights

Immediately after weighing anchor, the wind inyour face will be tinged with the aroma of spicy barbecued food. This is because the barbecue area is situated on the sun deck near the cocktailbar, in the immediate vicinity of the deckchairs. Tasty morsels are available here to accompany the kölsch and cocktails, and if a full evening meal takes your fancy, you will find what youare looking for below deck: In the saloons the friendly KD service staff will serve specialities à la carte, everything from a crisp fresh salad toa schnitzel or the popular KD sandwich. By theway, the panorama windows here ensure that you will not miss out on the beautiful city of Cologne. And after your meal you can go back on deck, find a comfortable place, appreciate the view, chat and relax. Life can be so simple!
