Meet or celebrate on board one of the KD event ships

Anchors aweigh for you and your guests! Everything is possible on the 15 ships in the KD fleet (50 to 1,650 pax). We provide a complete service of the very highest standard and can turn any event into an unforgettable experience.

The Köln-Düsseldorfer (KD) shipping company is the market leader in river cruises and has been carrying its passengers to idyllic destinations on the Rhine, Main and Moselle rivers for more than 185 years.

Corporate events, conferences, trade fairs, product launches, press conferences, training courses or AGMs – discerning hosts looking for the perfect venue are happy to opt for the extraordinary ambience on board one of our 15 well-appointed ships with space for 50 to 1,650 passengers. The experienced KD charter service provides advice and assistance every step of the way, from planning through to the event itself, turning every occasion into a special experience.

Even more impressive is the KD's new event fleet consisting of the two multi-functional ships, the MS RheinEnergie (90m long, 19m wide, max. 1,650 pax) and the newly christened MS RheinFantasie (85m long, 14m wide, max. 1,000 pax). The latest stage technology, floor-level panoramic windows, a spacious gallery lounge with a professional stage and a well-thought-out interior design provide for every occasion. Unparalleled in Europe, these incredible event ships offer a choice of two top venues for successful events on the Rhine. Please contact us if you would like more detailed information about the equipment and facilities on board our ships.

We offer a high-quality catering service on board all of our ships and each package can be individually tailored to your specific event: culinary delights on offer range from finger food (in the form of flying buffets) and rustic Rhineland buffets to a gala dinner with table service. The combination of our gastronomic creativity and expertise mean that you and your guests can experience true perfection and style.
