"ANDERNACH am Rhein" Andernach by pepples46

Andernach Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 60 photos

quaint little Town

and the Rhein has become cleaner. frequented by the Swans again..and fish to be had from the River.
Andernach, the sweet little Town by the River is actually a very old Girl...around 2400 years.
the Celts, the Romans all thought this is a neat place, stayed a while and when moving on, leaving the culture behind, the arts, architecture and the whole way of life.
a wonderful area of Germany, will always be dear to my heart

relaxing moments at the Market Square, have a coffee some cake or just a beer...Koenigsbacher is very good..for a short history, look up the webpage


die KoelnDuesseldorferRheinschifffahrtsgesellschaft....well, just say it loud!!
where the Cruise ships arrive and depart. one of the many activities Andernach has to offer
the River a lifestream and importand part of the Town.
the other one is the railway, from Mainz to the dutch border, worth a ride....on the left side, upstream, very scenic

Pros and Cons

    The Rhine towns are so beautiful - one day I need to go and explore all the castles and cafes and beer fests :-) And of course geology and the lava history :-) Scahd, soweit sind wir nicht gekommen :-)

    I do feel I've been here. What a nice place to have been born in.

    Your love for Andernach really shows through on this page! As you say, she 'may be an Old Girl', but you certainly are not! Happy birthday Waltraud!!

    I didn't know that Bukowski was born in A. Bei uns war Andernach noch wegen des Nervenkrankenhauses bekannt....., lol

    I didn't know there were volcanic lakes there. Lunch on the Rhein sounds wonderful. A beautiful region, you sold me with the ice cream parlors:-).
