Andernach Things to Do

  • relaxing walks in the hilly part

    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...

    more
  • Walk Along the Rhine

    Of couse you will do this if you are able. The street crossing is busy. There are things to see along here which I was not up to viewing.

    more
  • The 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?)

    more
  • 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.

    more
  • Church of the Ancient Hospital

    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.

    more
  • Christuskirche

    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.

    more
  • The "Laufkreuz" (A Crucifix)

    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"

  • and 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.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    getting on the Boat Cafe is easy enough,although one should have an eye on the where he/she is going. the real fun starts after Lunch/Dinner..getting off the Boat, well after 2 or 3 Beer or Wine, it becomes a totally different matter. so take care and go easy on the 'old bottle' ;-)

    Favorite Dish: Dishes of the season, Pasta, Fish Wienerschnitzel...

    old Buk

    by pepples46 Updated Oct 23, 2006

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Buk was born in Andernach, 16th of August 1920. His father an american Soldier who fell in love with a german Fraeulein.
    at the age of 2, the Familie moved back to Amerika.
    not many signs tell the visitor of this fact. I think the People of Andernach are not that fond of him. his books where a bit too much for many...and may that be as it is, still, he's born in this Town and I consider him..one of us!! read on at the website below.
    you can buy his books in the many bookstores in Andernach, all in very good translation!!

Andernach Warnings and Dangers

    flooding by the Rhine Gate, pretty high I can tell

    by pepples46 Updated Mar 7, 2006

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Andernach had always its fair share with flooding, when the winter ends, the ice melts, the river rises......boy its no mean feast as you can see from the old pic I found, around 1960.
    take care in the Spring...or after heavy downpores over a longer period of time, you could get stuck in the Town.
    but let me tell you...you could do worst!!
