Please arrive 10 - 30 minutes before the booked boat trip at the geyser jetty (Steiger 4) on the Rhine bank and proceed to the designated waiting area.

Please have your ticket ready for admission control before boarding the boat to avoid delays. During the crossing, you can stay on the main deck at your booked table (without a mask) or on the above decks (with a mask). The trip down the Rhine to the natural reserve Namedyer Werth takes about 15 minutes. From the jetty on the Namedyer Werth, you will reach the geyser after a short walk of 350 m (wheelchair accessible).

The time spent on the geyser site is about 45 minutes.
Our staff will of course be available to answer any questions during the boat crossing and on the site.
After the geyser eruption the boat will bring you back to Andernach. The
duration of the visit is about 1.5 hours.

Until further notice, a Andernach geyser visit is only possible with an online ticket. Ticket sales will not be offered on site.
You can buy your online-ticket here. Please bring your ticket printed out or a copy on your moblie phone and have it ready before embarking on the boat.

No. Visits to the geyser are only allowed with the boat ride.

The geyser is located on the Namedyere Werth which is a natural reserve. Many rare plants and animal species are native to this peninsula. One of the largest contiguous black poplar trees can be found on the reserve, as well as many species of bats and birds. One can only imagine the negative consequences if all our visitors could walk around freely in this area. The protection of this biotype could no longer be guaranteed.
Therefore, with the allowance of the government, we are only able to bring the visitors to experience the geyser via waterway with the help form the boat “Namedy”.

The museum in the Geyser Center must remain closed for the 2020 season, unfortunately.
The museum is one of the highlights of the geyser visit, and we were very exited to present a new area of the exhibition „eine Schieferhöhle“, the Slate Cave, this season.
With the help of our fantasy backdrop, our exhibition takes you to a depth of 4000m under the earth's surface. A large part of the exhibit is interactive and connected with haptics and joint action. The safety of our employees and guests is our top priority. Due to the spacial conditions and concept of our exhibit, we cannot guarantee their or your health safety under the current conditions. Therefore, visiting the exhibit is currently not possible; but we hope to make it possible for the season in 2021.

No, non-binding reservations are not possible during the 2020 season.
