The Chocolate-Express is the ideal travel trailer for of all those who want to see a lot of Cologne and its sights in a short period of time but do not want to walk on foot or cannot do so – and especially finds favour with senior citizens and children!
The central stops lead you very near to the pick of the bunch (“chocolate”) sides of Cologne!

The trip there takes you past the Cathedral alongside of many of the sights of Cologne, through the historic city centre with its romantic churches to the Chocolate Museum and the ship landings.
You can disembark there with the round-trip-ticket and return back to the Cathedral with us after for example visiting the Chocolate Museum or going on a trip with a ship (if you have booked a single trip it is up to you to take care of the return trip by yourself).
You can see the new “Rheinauhafen” / Harbour of Rheinau with its impressive “Kranhäusern” / tower crane houses on the return trip back as well as further famous churches of Cologne and drive across the “Heumarkt” / Hay Market back to the Cathedral.
