Overview
More
Der Geysir Andernach ist ein seltenes Naturphanomen. Er befindet sich im Mittelrheintal und ist ein Relikt des noch jungen Vulkangebietes der Osteifel. Der hochste Kaltwasser-Geysir der Welt mit seiner bis zu 60 Meter hohen Wasserfontane steht sogar im Guinness Buch der Rekorde. Mehr als 110.000 Besucher lassen sich pro Saison von dem einzigartigen Naturphanomen begeistern. Vulkanisches Kohlenstoffdioxid treibt den Geysir an und sorgt dafur, dass ungefahr alle zwei Stunden eine beeindruckende Fontane aus der Erde schiesst. Der Besuch beginnt im interaktiven Erlebniszentrum in Andernach mit einer imaginaren Reise 4000 m unter die Erde zum Ursprung des Geysirs. Gut und spannend informiert uber die naturwissenschaftlichen Hintergrunde und die vulkanischen Gegebenheiten der Region wird die Reise mit dem Geysir-Schiff ,,Namedy" fortgesetzt. Nach einer kurzen Schifffahrt auf dem Rhein wird das Naturschutzgebiet Namedyer Werth erreicht, wo der Geysir-Ausbruch den Hohepunkt der Exkursion darstellt.

The Geysir erupts every 10 mins or so. There is a couple of parking lots, one past the main lot if it is full. Many tourists, but worth the free stop.

I certainly think Geyser Andernach is worth experiencing. But to visit the geyser you are forced to spend more than 3 hours which is not always desired. The whole concept of visiting the Discovery Center for 1 to 1,5 hours prior to bording the river...More

Other answer is wrong. Well kinda. To actually be allowed to see the geysir, you need to pay the whole package, including the boat. So yes, you CAN park your car a few walking minutes nearby, but they won‘t let you cross the... More
