Came to Andernach 3years ago, so this time we decided to visit the Geysir. The 4000 mtr descent in the centre is a bit of a con! But the overall visit with the explanations in English was quite interesting. The actual boat trip to the...More

Ticket for the Geysir, takes you on a boat on the Rhine (+-10 min), then a small walk to the Geysir, +- 6 min of Geysir activity and then back to the boat ... if it was just that, then the price (15eur/person) would be...More

A "free" excursion courtesy of Saga. It start with a guide tour around a visitor centre that seemed to be aimed at children. Then a boat trip to the site of the geyser. Unfortunately the thunder and lightening meant we did not disembark. Returned to...More

Hi, I am very disappointed by overall. We drove from FFM to Andernach, hoping to see the Geysir. We faced with a shameless ticket price of 15€ pro person. Normally we could stop nearby, take a walk, see the geysir and drive further. Instead, we...More

The Geysir erupts every 10 mins or so. There is a couple of parking lots, one past the main lot if it is full. Many tourists, but worth the free stop.

I certainly think Geyser Andernach is worth experiencing. But to visit the geyser you are forced to spend more than 3 hours which is not always desired. The whole concept of visiting the Discovery Center for 1 to 1,5 hours prior to bording the river...More

Other answer is wrong. Well kinda. To actually be allowed to see the geysir, you need to pay the whole package, including the boat. So yes, you CAN park your car a few walking minutes nearby, but they won‘t let you cross the... More
