This was a short visit as we were on a Rhine cruise and had docked in Andernach. The town wall and fortifications were excellent and extremely interesting. We wished we had been able to explore the town further.

Enjoyed a few hours wandering around this nice old town with its imposing towers and high defensive wall remains. Plenty of good info boards around the wall sections.

Wish we had longer as Andernach has so much to offer. The city wall and fornications were excellent and well worth the effort to visit. To really appreciate what this quaint town has to offer, you need time. Have fun exploring
