Geysir Andernach, Andernach

(140+ reviews on the web)
Hot Spring
Measuring 60 m (197 ft) at its highest point, Geysir Andernach is the tallest cold-water geyser in the world. Trek through the exhibit to learn how the geyser works and the history of the area, then take a 15-minute boat ride downstream to the geyser. Use all of you senses to experience this natural phenomenon: Listen to the gurgle and hiss of the water, then watch it sprout out of the ground; get close enough to feel the water fall on your skin; even taste it, if you are willing. Be sure to check the schedule of boat departures ahead of time, as they only leave a few times a day. Our Andernach itinerary planner makes visiting Geysir Andernach and other Andernach attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • To explain the title: you can visit the geyser of cold water only in the "package" that there is for the normal price of Euro 15,00. This package includes the visit to the Museum of geyser on the Rhine promenade in Andernach, the boat ride to the Namedyer Werth - in the cold water geyser is a local nature reserve and then seen the up to 60-metre-high geyser eruption. I want to start with the Museum: knowledge is basically right. You can learn much about the structure of the Earth, and why such a cold water geyser can make in the Eifel. Many things are interactive and provide so, playful, to try the read. So far, so good. But the Museum is just too small! Before the four departures "visitors knubbeln" up to then pour on the ship. Who is, like us, this issue, visited the Museum just after the experience of the geyser eruption. However, it is necessary to communicate this wish when buying the ticket cashiers. The card is also featured and it has no problems with the subsequent admission! But when the weather on a weekend the Museum is even again by visitors to the next, possibly the next trip so full that it's hard to look at the exhibits alone and try out. The flow of visitors just not spread over the entire opening hours but cumulative, the closer comes the next departure of the vessel. Shipping with the MS Namedy is pleasant, even in large crowds, everyone will probably find a place of his choice. Further information about the geyser confined to the note, when the ship pushes the Namedyer Werth again by the investor's. The drive there is extended, because the ship docks, only if necessary, in Leutesdorf. The geyser: the Namedyer Werth is a nature reserve and therefore-angeblich - only with the ship accessible. That's not entirely true but, because a footpath crosses the area in full length from North to South. But it sure makes sense to refer to the partial several hundred visitors in order to minimise disturbance of nature on shipping! Anyway, grid block access and probably also the views of the geyser. Although the geyser in a nature reserve, it is there not really idyllic. The busy federal railway line Cologne-Koblenz and the four-lane B-9 are right and left of the geyser. Maybe does not also any oral information at the geyser itself. Interested parties can inform his story on multiple tablets. We liked it, cashiers, and even the ladies in the Café were very friendly, but we consider the detailed preliminary sense not too much to expect.

  • This is another must see in Iceland it's a easy walk in from the car park & The geyser when it blows is quite a sight .  more »
  • That this geyser to every day exactly same time (geysers can read any watches ;-)!) shoots in the amount any normal thinking person can be determined. I found it very interesting, also the shipping there was well organized. Who liked could eat something and drink - but had to not! Maintained then as a small force through the forest up to the geyser and the "outbreak". A change of pace to again take Yes not every week, but once was good!

  • Cool experience, first an interactive learning museum that takes you into a whole other world. Then a boat ride to a nature area where you see the "Geysir" in action.
  • When we visited Andernach, we made a detour of almost 200 km's to see the geysir. We arrived just after the boat had left, the next departure was 1½ hours later and the trip is announced having a 2½ hour duration. In our case 4 hours total. We simply didn't have the time for that. We asked where the geysir was located, and was invariably directed to the infocenter, which was not what we wanted. Asking in the center where the actual geysir was located, is is totally absent on city- and tourist maps, we were met with blank faces and told about the boat trip. Finally we found a guy at at gas station who told us, not in a whisper but close to, that "Alles is abgesperrt", it is all fenced off.. Coming back and looking at google maps, we discovered that we had actually passed the geysir. It is not very far from the infocenter, not very far from the main road, houses are nearby, and it looks easy to access. The big question then is: Is this a genuine tourist trap, where they want to milk you for 12 euros/person and 2½ hours of your time, drawing every inch out of it, or do they want to show you one of natures wonders? Our vote for this is definitely negative. We are not coming back to the area for a foreseable future, so probably we'll have to live with the notion, that this is one of the things we are not going to see.
  • The outburst was brief but fascinating ending. Many visitors were not present because it was raining. The entry price was really reasonable. Worth a look at. There was not a guide but the explanation on the plate was presented well with images.

  • Sure no quite cheaper fun. But unique! Who has seen even a geyser in Iceland, which gets it here explained in the Info Center and can admire the German geyser after boat trip on the Rhine... So a trip takes a little time!
