We enjoyed walking in this beautiful historical town and discover the remains of old fortification which is well preserved. At most of the gates you can find a sign with the name of it and a few facts about its history.

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.

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
