Geysir Andernach, Andernach
(3.6/5 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.

  • 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.

  • A treat take the ship two times Täglich-to the geyser of Andernach, travel time 30 minutes when the dry weather also scenic and relive the eruption of the geyser 10 minutes, spouting extremely spectacular, about 60 meters high, you can then take a salty water sample.

  • The "highest cold-water geyser of the world" is a heading that makes curious people interested in, of course. With the possibilities of the Internet, to pick up virtually any stunning attraction and each "world record" Adventures (for free) on the monitor, it is certainly hard to generate sustainable impressions for this peculiarity of geophysics. If then visitors speak out: "already in place voices have been raised, that it is a randomly-controlled operation." Then, in my opinion, this is wickedness from ignorance. It is NOT right that "arbitrarily is controlled". As a physicist, it is of course aware that this is not possible. If you already read about this geyser in the Internet (also in Wikipedia), so you know the unspectacular correlations of the eruption and the water fountain is nothing more than a fountain of one of the many castles with such a tourist attraction in recent days. But it is fun who, why not. Our visit cost far more than 100 euro (without "food and beverages") with 5 people, so an issue you should consider exactly. There was then the nodules with 10 euro for parking (forbidden) on a (totally empty!) Tourist bus-parking to the last demonstration in the afternoon still the smallest amount. But the most annoying, because the parking was really full and (see above) the huge bus parking along the street totally empty. Also, I of course had a valid (and not cheap) parking ticket in the vehicle. Probably that will be assigned to "Nodules officials" (knoellchen@andernach.de), their work (i.e., the distribution of warnings) not according to their personal assessment and their clever balancing to do, but according to the relevant if even dubious or even partly nonsensical, requirements to do. At least this impression "Victims". You can save even this experience, without having missed anything important.

  • 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!
