A fast-paced journey under the earth
Drive 4000 metres into the depths at the "Tiefgang
Now that you have learned everything important about the volcanic Eifel and its history, it is time for your next museum stage: the deep dive. To do this, you climb into an old mine lift that takes you and the other explorers to a depth of 4000 metres. You get in and at first darkness reigns. Then your wild, virtual ride begins. Large screens on the walls of the lift and audio effects simulate the ride.
Your journey into the depths of the earth's crust takes about one and a half minutes. Here there is normally darkness, high pressure and temperatures of more than 100 °C. But don't worry, the area is illuminated and air-conditioned. In the depths, information panels explain the volcanic origin ofCO2, which acts as fuel for the geyser in Andernach, so to speak. With the help of various exhibits, you can learn about rock, water and air pressure. Here you will also learn what the red-hot magma that lies dormant at a depth of 4000 metres has to do with all this.

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).Customer testimonial from
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.Facebook Customer testimonial from
