Geysir Andernach, Andernach

(3.7/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Good Museum with experiments for young and old. The shipping is great. I expected more from the geyser. Looks like outbreak produced with pump.

  • The whole event is over-priced for what you get, but afterwards you can say you have been to the best "Geysir" in Germany and had a very short boat trip on the Rhein. The Museum is very interessting s...  more »
  • We lead with the ship of Andernach the Namedyer Werth and the geyser: in detail, the versions of the geyser explainer and equally impressive, the actual outbreak of the geyser, but somehow I until today the feeling not got rid of, that everything is absolutely controllable and therefore slightly less mystical.

  • 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!

  • Already a Word is 15 euros per person. But you get to see all sorts of. With shipping to the geyser. Total duration approx. 3 hours
