Your thrilling geyser expedition in Andernach
The most spectacular nature experience on the Middle Rhine
Your geyser expedition begins at the Geysir Museum Andernach. Here, the world of geysers and volcanoes is explained to you in an impressive way. Your adventure in the Geysir Museum will take you through six different museum areas: Prelude, Draught, Shale Cave, Borehole, Exits as well as Above ground. But before that, you should know: This will be anything but a normal Museum visit.
In each area you will find many Exhibits and hands-on learning stations. They deal with the different geoscientific phenomena and processes that make the geyser the natural spectacle that it is. Whether acoustic, haptic, optical, physical or chemical - the many creative learning stations make your visit to the Geysir Museum unique.
Learning world becomes a real experience
Boat trip across the Rhine to the Andernach geyser
The next part of your Geyser Expedition is a relaxed one. The geyser ship MS Namedy takes you comfortably to the Namedyer Werth, where the Geysir Andernach is located. The Werth is a wooded peninsula in the Rhine, west of Andernach. The jetty is directly opposite the museum, just 50 metres away. Enjoy the peaceful crossing and the view of the Rhine and its beautiful banks. Let your experiences from the Geysir Museum pass in review.
The spectacular eruption of the world's highest cold-water geyser is the highlight of your expedition. Through your visit to the museum you now know everything important about its formation and function. Now you want to experience the unique natural spectacle in action. And it's worth it, because you don't see such an impressive 60-metre fountain of gas and water shooting into the sky directly in front of you every day.

Excitement in the Namedyer Werth nature reserve
