Cool events on Germany’s longest river

Flusskreuzfahrtschiff chartern Rhein mit OceanEvent - Loreley-Figur-Mittelrheintal

Riverboat charter on the Rhine

Over a length of 865 kilometers, the Rhine flows through German lands. It measures 1,233 kilometers if you count its course in the neighboring countries of Switzerland and the Netherlands. A Riverboat charter on the Rhine thus offers cultural, scenic and culinary diversity. Cruised by extremely stylish ships, the river finally becomes a sought-after destination for corporate events and private celebrations! With elegant cabins, spacious sun decks, panoramic lounges and fine cuisine, the riverboats sailing on the Rhine are event locations and fascinating hotels in one. Their multifunctional rooms also make them excellent meeting and congress centers.



Experience diversity

OceanEvent organizes spectacular anniversaries, corporate events, incentives and conferences on the Rhine – with supporting programs that let your guests experience the richness of the very different regions and inspire them in the long term.

Take Amsterdam, where the journey can begin or end on your exclusively chartered ship. The vibrant city with its picturesque canals and world-class museums is best conquered on a culinary tour. With cheese tasting and local beers, of course!

Chartering a Riverboat and choosing Cologne as your base offers options to travel up or down the Rhine. Or branch off into the Moselle, where we combine magnificent wineries, medieval towns, castles and palaces to create a diverse program. A little to the south, the Neckar branches off. Here a ‘side trip’ to Heidelberg with its romantic old town, historic university and impressive castle ruins is worthwhile.

Located close to the French-German border, Strasbourg offers a unique blend of both cultures. From the famous ‘Petite France’ quarter to the charming canals and half-timbered houses to the European Parliament with guided tours tailored to your group, OceanEvent’s event managers can think of a lot of tours and highlights worth experiencing.

Basel is where many of our Rhine cruise events begin and/or end. Swiss charm, a rich history and culinary delights, modern alongside centuries-old architecture and one of the oldest public art collections in the world also leave plenty of room here for creative entertainment before or after your eventful cruise.

Of course, this also applies to all the many places, locations and natural spectacles along the route. We promise you unforgettable gourmet experiences in historic buildings, picturesque riverside restaurants, exquisite wineries, sailing regattas and kayak tours… social programs with a surprise effect!
