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
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
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

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...

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 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!!
only 70km from Andernach by car over the Autobahn or by Train in direct connection, quite lovely ride along the Rhine, the Train brings you right into the City, close to the Dom. Cologne a busy, bustling Place. there is a saying im Rhineland:hier geht's zu wie auf dem Koelner Hauptbahnhof= your place looks like the main railwaystation in Colognemore
