This was a great way to spend a few hours on a Sunday afternoon. Floors upon floors of interesting boat related information. The highlight for me would have to be the floor with the cinema screens and authentic information films in both English and German...More

The museum is interesting but a bit scattered and it doesn't tell the story of the Rhein very well. I enjoyed it and I learned from it but there is much more potential.

The museum itself is very interesting. The view from the last floor is great, we can see all the river side. The coffee and cakes are delicious and cheap. The museum has a few simulators, we can experience driving a boat.

The Schifffahrtmuseum specializes on the history of ship using the River Rhine. I first walked along the promenade watching the ships and then entered the museum- reverse order would have been better. Detailed models of ships. Multistory building. Professional and knowledgeable staff. History lovers and...More
