What to expect

On this two-and-a-half-hour excursion, you’ll get to try some of Cologne’s locally brewed beers, plus see some of city’s most famous landmarks – like the cathedral and the Roman city gates. Cologne is the cultural heart of the riverside region known as the Rhineland, and comes with a buzzing arts scene, more than 30 museums, hundreds of galleries and popular breweries. This excursion takes you straight to the old town, where you’ll visit two German breweries. A guide will lead you on a tour of each one, and tell you all about how the beers are produced. You’ll get to try a couple of them, too, before heading back to the ship.
