Cologne, Kolsch and castles with Avalon Waterways



So Cologne isn’t just famous for its beautiful fragrance. It has the most amazing 13th century gothic cathedral, numerous art galleries and museums with a rich historical heritage that makes it a great stop off point on our romantic Rhine cruise. It’s also the home of Kolsch beer and hundreds of traditional brauhaus taverns from which to sample one.... or ten!




This Avalon Waterways river cruise provides plenty of included sightseeing in the towns we are visiting as well as some great carefully handpicked optional tours.


I’m finding river cruising is the ultimate in relaxation. No waves and never far away from shore and you experience great city locations that most ocean liners can’t access.



Up on the top-floor panoramic deck the views of the lush German countryside, verdant vineyards and the river rolling by are just perfect. We are now on the” romantic” bit and I’m looking forward to castles, forts, quaint villages and lots of Moselle wine!
