Geological Formations to Explore in Rhineland-Palatinate

Andernach Geyser

Andernach Geyser is the highest cold-water geyser in the world, reaching heights of 30 to 60 metres. It is one of the sights in the volcano park and part of the Geopark Vulkanland Eifel. The geyser is fed from a 350-metre-deep artesian well and it is closed with a valve for safety reasons art night.

Devil's Gorge

The Devil's Gorge is a rock fissure about 1 and 5 metres wide. The bizarre landscapes, steep rock faces, narrow gorges, and fissures makes the Devil's Gorge a popular attraction for tourists. It was formed about 10,000 years ago, towards the end of the last ice age as a result of one or more rock collapses.
