The highest cold water geyser in the world

From the food hotel to the geyser in Andernach in the twinkling of an eye

It begins deep underground. The most spectacular natural spectacle on the Middle Rhine. The famous cold water geyser in Andernach. The highest of its kind. In the whole world. Its water column shoots 60 meters into the sky. From the food hotel in Neuwied, this natural experience is within easy reach. Just take a short trip to the other side of the Rhine. You are already at the geyser center. Here begins your spectacular geyser experience.

At Geyser Center you will learn how the natural phenomenon works. In the exhibition you will descend deep. To a depth of 4000 meters. Only virtually, of course. This is where the journey of the geyser water begins. Interesting background information accompanies it. Explain the connections between geyser and volcano. In addition, elaborate backdrops. Audio and video installations. The visit to the exhibition becomes an experience. A spectacular story that is well worth seeing.

From the bubbly to the star of the Middle Rhine

The geyser Andernach and tourism

In 1903, a 343-meter-deep hole was drilled on the Namedy Peninsula to extract carbon dioxide. A mineral water was to be produced. In the process, the Andernach geyser awoke for the first time. The carbon dioxide pushed the water powerfully to the surface. It shot up almost 40 meters. The fountain was called the "Namedyer Sprudel". The same name also adorned the bottled mineral water.

In 2006, the Andernach geyser was opened up for tourism. After a long back and forth. Two years later, it was officially entered in the Guinness Book of World Records. As the highest cold water geyser on earth. Since then, thousands of visitors have come to see it every year. The geyser erupts every two hours. One eruption lasts about eight minutes. Unfortunately, it cannot be seen from the food hotel. But you can catch a glimpse from the banks of the Rhine in Leutesdorf.

Geyser island offers new habitat

The Namedyer Werth Nature Reserve

The Namedyer Werth is a refuge. Rare plants. Endangered animal species. Here they find a home. The Werth serves as a breeding ground for the black kite. For the oriole and the kingfisher. It is home to nine different species of bats. The animals find the ideal habitat here.

The Geysir Andernach is at the top of the list of nature experiences in and around Neuwied. You can reach the geyser center from the food hotel in different ways. By car you drive about 30 minutes via the B296 and the B9. You can also walk along the Rhine promenade. We recommend the walk to the ferry dock in Leutesdorf. The daily ferry ride to Andernach is pleasant. This way you can quickly get from food hotel Neuwied to the Geysir center.
