Discover the historic town of Andernach

History and culture from 2000 years of city history

Dividing line

Andernach is one of the oldest towns in Germany. This fact alone makes the Rhine city worth seeing. Here you will discover many historical buildings, monuments and cultural landscapes. The Rhine Gate in Andernach, for example, is one of the oldest double gates on the Rhine. On the sides of the massive gate you will also find the statues of the two baker's boys, who are significant figures of Andernach.

An industrial monument worth seeing in Andernach is the Alte Krahnen. The tower crane has stood on the banks of the Rhine since it was built in the 16th century. It used to be used for loading goods such as tuff and wine. The crane was enormously important for the town's regional economic influence.

The fact that Andernach has already existed for so many centuries can be seen above all in the traces of the ancient Romans. In the Historical Garden, the town presents excavations from Roman times. The columns, latrines and fountains, some of which are original and some of which have been reconstructed, give you an idea of how the Romans lived in Andernach back then.

Andernach's town castle and the Round Tower are also worth a visit. Both buildings date back to the Middle Ages and contribute to the historical character of the town. But Andernach, the "Edible Town", has much more to offer. You will see!

Nice excursion with a nice explanation. We had a very nice trip to the geyser. The geyser was very impressive to see. Special thanks to the staff, who were very friendly and helpful, and thus made the excursion possible for us (help due to walking disability).

Absolutely recommendable! In an interactive tour, you can learn about the formation of a geyser in a playful way. The absolute highlight is the boat trip to the geyser, where you can see the natural spectacle live.
