    Forest Walks around the high cross

    around Andernach, from the intro pic you have an idea where you can spent a relaxing walk high above the City, with view over the River and neighboring towns and villages.
    walkways through the Forest and afterwards a relaxing beer or cafe with cake.
    das hohe Kreuz ( high Cross ) sought after recreational part of the Town. but you better drive up there

    The Rathaus

    Rathaus

    This fine old building is from1561-1574. It is a couple of blocks into town on Hochstrasse from the Christuskiche. It would have been nice to look inside. They say an ancient Jewish ceremonial bath (Mikwe) is in the basement. (I think that this is so in the Koeln Rathaus too. Weird isn't it?)

    Inner side of Rheintor

    This large gate leads from the town out into the Rhine promenade, with a busy street, a walk and docks for the Rhine steamers and other vessels (plus some structures - an ancient crane and a bulwark that I could not walk to). I did not cross to take a picture of the facade, only the town-side view.

    Church of the Ancient Hospital

    The Ancient Hospital Church

    The care of the poor was a deep concern of these citizens. The Catholic Church built a church next to the hospital ( the present day hospital is down the street), in the early 18C. The pcture is from where we parked the car near a pharmacy.

    and along the River

    walkways along the river

    if you don't like hills, walk around the flat area...along the Rhine, take a picnic basquet...relax, away from the husle and busle of your daily routine. I did that often, just for a couple of hours...with friend, food and wine..after that, the routine was easier to take.

    On the street with the tourist off ice is the facade-entry to the protestant city church. It was closed when we came by. It was started in 1245 and has a Gothic form.

    Close to the Tourist office is the city wall and an opening toward the station. Next to the opening is this ancient Crucifix moved here when the Burial Ground of the Ancient Hospital was "dissolved"
