What to expect on our “Cologne Riviera Bike Tour”
The journey is the goal on this 30-kilometer bike tour along the Rhine. Well-developed cycle paths lead from the Eigelstein directly to the Rhine promenade, past the Hohenzollern Bridge and the fish market and on towards Rheinauhafen and Rodenkirchen. Between lush forests, small bays, sandy beaches and old villas we make our way further south. Your guide will explain a lot about Cologne and its green surroundings.
With ferry and bike across the Rhine
Small ferry – big adventure! Arrived in Weiss, you board the little “crocodile”, the ferry that takes you to the other side of the Rhine. You deserve a break here. Zündorf is located on the Groov, a silted-up former arm of the Rhine. The market square still bears witness to its medieval past and offers you space to linger in beer houses, beer gardens, ice cream parlours and cafés.
You then return to the city centre on the “Schäl Sick”, Cologne’s wrong side of the Rhine, which offers you great views of the harbour, the old town and the cathedral.
Guided Group Bike Tour in Cologne & E-Bikes on Tour!
Of course, a guided group bike tour in Cologne is all about sustainability, because with your bike you contribute to low-emission road traffic in the city. And although our “Cologne Riviera” is all about cycling, the 30 kilometres of the tour can be covered in a more relaxed way by e-bike. Let us know in advance and we will reserve the right e-bikes for your group!
The “Cologne Riviera” completely private!
You want to stay a little longer at the Rodenkirchen lidos or add a Kölsch stop at a specific location – let us know and we will adjust the route of the tour according to your ideas. The advantage of a private guided group bike tour in Cologne!
Or would you rather decide spontaneously where to go, or take a break? Our guides know the most beautiful beer gardens on the Groov Terrace or will take you to one of the Zündorfer cafés.
