What fun and living goes on along the banks of the Rhine! Easy access , find a cozy spot to sit out and have a picnic , stop by a lively beer garden for a snack or go for a float up the chilly river.

I have visited the CityBeach when I needed to relax and unwind after a stressful day or week at work. The sand, the beach chairs and the beach volley ball courts make you believe you are somewhere else. Perfect for afterworks when the sun is out and the well-needed vacations are too far away.

We attempted to arrive at city-beach mid afternoon on a 30degree day to catch some sun as the concept of a beach within a city far from the coast is quite unique. However, we were dissapointed that the opening time of 12pm as stated on the website and on advertisments was false and the venue did not open till 5pm.... More
