1. Cologne: Advent River Cruise on the Rhine
Get out of the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy a holiday cruise on Cologne’s Rhine River. Hop on a festively decorated ship and explore the water with Santa on board. Celebrate the Advent season with live music and sweet treats. For the little ones, Santa will bring gifts. While the city center of Cologne sinks into the pre-Christmas hustle and bustle, you can enjoy the quieter side of the Advent season on the ship: colorful lights on the banks, festive live music, and sweets. Embrace the Christmas spirit as you take in the beautiful view of the city panorama. Look forward to a real Christmas wonderland on board during this elaborately decorated event. Thousands of lights, huge Christmas balls, and snow-white garlands create a unique, festive atmosphere. Bring little ones to join in on the holiday fun and receive a surprise from Santa.
